Do you want to fail in everything you do and waste all your potential?


Life is about being negative, right? Its about not taking opportunities, never changing and, most importantly, feeling unhappy and unfulfilled.


How to Be a Complete and Utter Failure is your ultimate ANTI life coach. From not having any goals, to not taking personal responsibility for your life, every idea, strategy, suggestion and story in here is guaranteed to propel you into the slow lane of total inadequacy. 


Be warned: whatever you do, dont do the opposite of what you learn here or else youre in serious danger of making some positive changes and leading a more successful life.


This book doesn't do what it says on the tin. Quite the opposite. It is written with commendable charm and clarity, laden with chuckles and insights in equal measure. You will laugh and you will think often at the same time.

Neil Mullarkey, Founder-Member of the Comedy Store Players


I love this book by saying the exact opposite of what you should do it really hones in on the messages and breaks the bad habits.

Sahar Hashemi, Co-Founder of Coffee Republic
