“The best away to deal with the bits of your history that you don’t like is to learn to laugh about them,” author David Tieck believes. To make light of his own embarrassing past, Tieck tells all in his new book, “The Embarrassing Memory Murderer: One Man’s Tremendously Smart Year Attempting to Mend His Humbling History” (published by iUniverse).

Tieck was used to allowing his endless array of humiliating memories crush his spirits, when one day he had a bright idea – to use his most excruciating memories to inspire a challenge or adventure that would finally allow him to become thankful for his past.

In his memoir, Tieck opens a door into his unequivocally embarrassing life while sharing how he learned to deal with the many memories keeping him from realizing true happiness. As Tieck relives such awkward moments as being dumped halfway through losing his virginity, unsuccessfully attempting to woo a Hollywood actress and nervously performing stand-up comedy in front of complete strangers, he provides an intimate glimpse into his imperfect yet heartwarming efforts at creating his own destiny.

“The Embarrassing Memory Murderer” shares one man’s journey through life as he comes to grips with his past, finds his adventurous spirit and offers hope, wisdom and understanding to anyone who is ready to let go and laugh about their own disconcerting moments.
