A nice take on life planners and motivational books. It's a nice fun book that outlines the stages of life and what you should be doing in each stage every year of your life. Overall, an amusing read.

Described by the authors as an 'extreme self-improvement' philosophy, this Diary asks a lot from it's reader base.
The first thing you are expected to do, in the induction week, is to entrust your passport to the publishers so that it can be defaced thus rendering it potentially void and running the risk of you running fowl of the authorities and being subjected to whatever penalties such an infraction entails.
Of coarse anyone so suggestible as to follow the rules of this book unquestionably, probably would have gotten themselves into hot water long before reading it in the first place.

There are 52 tasks in total. One per week. Some are benign enough such as week 2 'Knocking on every door you see' or week 20 'smiling inappropriately'; but others ask a little more of you, week 48 'increase your pain threshold' and week 5 'join extremist organisations and out-extreme them'. A few do spark my personal interest, week 28 'Wear a burka' - because I like the idea of going through this fly-on-the-wall experience, both because I am curious how it would impinge on my spatial awareness and also find out how peoples prejudices affect these women in our society; and, week 38 arrange to 'see a dead body' - thus contemplating the fleetingness of my own life which I know I take far too much for granted.

I didn't read all of the book, but flipped through it, reading here and there. I enjoyed the bits most, that suggested prank. Although some of them were rather harmless (not even illegal!), I liked the idea of hundreds of readers blocking the KKK's phone lines..
The book is on an inofficial book ring. I will pass it on to Diamondlucy when I'm in Graz.

The title of this book is certainly not a lie, but note that it says nothing about improving your life. Only changing it. While I did not actually attempt any of the daily exercises in this book, I did get some good chuckles out of it.
