Awaken Your Perfect Self: How to Become Better than Everybody Else

New Kindle Single is a biting satire of self-help charlatans by first-time ebook author Brian Haigh.

The journey of life is like climbing a mountain. You may have to push people off to reach the top, but the view makes it all worthwhile.

Based on a series of interviews with self-perfection guru Jim Hoenfhmfjn, this Kindle Single introduces the reader to Jim’s philosophies in 15 easy-to-digest life lessons. Told in an absurdist, deadpan style, Awaken Your Perfect Self follows Jim as he dispenses bizarre advice on how to get ahead in life, with pearls of wisdom such as: “The journey of life is like climbing a mountain. You may have to push people off to reach the top, but the view makes it all worthwhile.”

Awaken Your Perfect Self starts with the hilarious description of how to pronounce his name: “Jim’s usual response is that while most people pronounce it ‘Hohnfimfijin’, it’s actually pronounced like it’s spelled: ‘Hoenfhmfjn’. That may not be of much help to most people. To pronounce Hoenfhmfjn, say it like ‘Hinfmfn’ (the last ‘h’ and ‘j’ are silent).”

From there we follow the hopelessly naïve narrator as he documents the secrets to Jim’s success, following him deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole while his own finances slowly drain away as Hoenfhmfjn pontificates about “self-perfection”. It is a hysterically absurd send-up of both the cult of personality that surrounds our society’s so-called “success gurus” who claim to have all the answers, as well as the people who blindly follow them in search of “get rich quick” schemes.

Added to the Kindle Singles store on May 11, 2012, Awaken Your Perfect Self is now on the Top 10 Bestseller list for Kindle Singles, the Top 10 Bestseller list for Humor, and is the #1-selling parody on Amazon. “I am absolutely thrilled and overwhelmed with the response this book has received so far,” says Haigh. “This is my first published ebook, and to see it get picked up as a Kindle Single and embraced by the reading public has been simply amazing.”

Learn how to put yourself before others, take instead of give, and stop being a follower and become a leader. Propel your life forward and achieve ultimate success--start perfecting yourself today.
