    Product Description

    How to Ruin Your Life is a powerful self-help tool in the form of a work of humor. It is sardonic advice, presented with tongue in cheek, explaining how people can “ruin” their lives. The essays cover topics such as “Convince Yourself That You’re All That Matters,” Think the Worst of Everyone,” “Pour Salt on Those Wounds,” and “You Can Change People.” Seriously, though, to anyone who reads this book, it is an earnest warning about falling into traps of self-destructive behavior that can ruin any man or woman’s life. More than that, it comprises 35 steps that—if read and understood—provide a road map to making life work in the most effective way possible. It is humor and self-help all in one, delivered by Ben Stein, a man who has witnessed more than his share of people who did ruin their lives—as well as those whose lives have been wildly successful.

    About the Author


    Ben Stein, a nationally renowned “Renaissance man,” hosted the long-running quiz show Win Ben Stein’s Money. He is a former White House speechwriter, Wall Street Journal and American Spectator columnist, trial lawyer, law school professor, scriptwriter, and novelist—and author of several self-help books on finance. He has seen the biggest (Richard Nixon) and the most famous (many Hollywood stars) ruin their lives. He has also seen how some seemingly ordinary people made something great of their lives—by doing the opposite of what he sees as ruinous acts and modes of thought. He lectures nationally on finance, politics, and how to improve one’s life.
