For us here at Apricot Press, the character of our readers matters. In most of us, good character is forged as we pass through trials and challenges. My theory is that one of the reasons why irritating people are so irritating is because they haven t passed through enough trials. What could possibly be more important than irritating the people who annoy you, thereby helping them pass through more trials so they will learn to become less irritating. We urge you to buy this book so that you can be more effective in this important enterprise and so that we will be able to make our car payment.
