Product description

Help Yourself: With a guide to the meaning of life, the universe and everything, thrown in at no extra cost.

Yet another book about comedy, fame and madness. But with answers to the meaning of life thrown in for free. John Smith just died as a comedian but may have been reborn as a prophet of the present moment. Dr Hazel Cole has written a self-help book so good that it might even work on daytime TV presenters. Behind the scenes, billionaire press baron Eric Hayle seems to be pressing all the buttons. But will this mysterious man spoil everything? God only knows. And what happens if you ask 644 professional philosophers about the meaning of life, the universe and everything? Caspar knows because he tried it. The results are included in this edition at no extra cost to you. But knowledge comes at a price. You will have to put up with some of Caspar's ranting at the universe
Caspar Addyman has a Ph.D. in developmental psychology. By day, he is a professional infantologist, studying the growing minds of tiny babies. He is interested in what makes them laugh and tick. By night he runs YourBrainOnDrugs.net; an internet and smartphone based research project about recreational drug use. At the weekends, he drinks, dances and sometimes even sleeps. He lives in London.

This book has been inscribed by the authour, Caspar Addyman, "For Ailsa, who wrote the bit about the horse." It is in good condition with slight bending to the cover and bumping to the bottom corner. The spine is uncreased and all the pages are clean and tight.
