Books: The I-Ching for generation Z

I picked this book up on a whim. It caught my eye because the mirror writing on the cover says
Whatever you think think the opposite
and claims to be by
Paul Arden, author of the best selling book in the world
The cover was George Castanza enough to grab me, but contents is pure Kramer. Paul Arden has distilled pretty much all you really need to know about creative thinking and risk taking into 143 pages of bold print, wierd pictures, clever lines and a mirror. It's a kind of dip-in:dip-out self-help manual for the creatively disabled. You can read it cover to cover like a novel in an hour or so, if you're slow; or dip in page by page - I-Ching style - and meditate on one idea at a time.

I liked it because Paul Arden clearly thinks exactly the same way that I do. The difference is that he's had the courage to act on his ideas. That's why I had to buy his words in a shop, and you're reading mine for free.

If you think it sounds like crap, read the title again.

I think it sounds good.

So where does that leave me?
