Central Avenue Publishing is proud to publish another book by the widely acclaimed poet Iain S. Thomas. As many have noted on various social media platforms, there have been some issues that have led to the delayed release of this book. For this, we apologise and hopefully the content of the book will clarify the circumstances surrounding this delay. We feel we should also point out that this is not technically a self-help book, but it does contain some poignant prose, poetry and stories which may or may not lead you to happiness.Mostly, it is the rather unfortunate chronicle of a man's attempt to write the book he’s promised his publisher, no matter the cost to his sanity.

LOOK, MAYBE YOU’RE A NICE GIRL, but we’re guessing you’re more like us or you probably wouldn’t have picked up this book. Not that we have a problem with girls who are nice people. But being nice is just not the way to get what you want. And this book is about getting what you want. Not in like a finding happiness, giving back to the world, being grateful for what you have sort of way. But in a ruling your world, being the most desired, powerful badass in the room way, so you can come out on top of any situation: guys, career, friends, enemies, whatever. How does a betch make that happen? Here are some highlights: DON’T BE EASY. DON’T BE POOR. DON’T BE UGLY. We didn’t come up with these life lessons. We’re just the ones who wrote it all down. This is not self-help. Self-help is for fat people and divorcées. This is how to deal with your problems when you have no problems. You’re welcome.

How to Ruin Your Life

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 Youre 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 womans 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.

Good With Me

A Simple Approach to Real Happiness from the Inside Out

Learn to separate your self-esteem from outside influences—like social media—with advice from a nationally recognized addictions expert. Are you unhappy and don’t know why or how to fix it? Do you compare yourself to others and end up feeling bad about yourself? Do you worry about what others think about you? Is being successful and having it all not enough? Have you given up on yourself? If your answer is yes to any of the above, you may have other-dependent esteem. According to licensed counselor and self-esteem expert Patricia Noll, other-dependent esteem means that our happiness and self-worth depend upon something outside of ourselves, such as: What we have, do, and know What others think about us Looking good Being right Achievements and accomplishments Being the best And more. The problem is that nothing outside of ourselves can truly make us happy—at least not for long. Other-dependent esteem creates a cycle of stress, addictive behavior, dependency, and ultimately deep unhappiness. In Good With Me, Noll presents the same revolutionary approach that has helped her clients at Focus One, an outpatient substance abuse program, shift from other-dependent esteem to true, self-dependent esteem—and experience freedom from crippling effects of other-dependency. This simple, practical, step-by-step solution will also help you finally achieve lasting happiness from the inside out, regardless of circumstances. “If you have ever reached a goal and yet not felt satisfied, reading this book will show you why that is and how you can change that. Permanently.” —Laura Atchison, bestselling author of What Would a Wise Woman Do?

Leaving Fundamentalism

Personal Stories

In a time when religious conservatives have placed their faith and values at the forefront of the so-called “culture wars,” this book is extremely relevant. The stories in Leaving Fundamentalism provide a personal and intimate look behind sermons, religious services, and church life, and promote an understanding of those who have been deeply involved in the conservative Christian church. These autobiographies come from within the congregations and homes of religious fundamentalists, where their highly idealized faith, in all its complexities and problems, meets the reality of everyday life. Told from the perspective of distance gained by leaving fundamentalism, each story gives the reader a snapshot of what it is like to go through the experiences, thoughts, feelings, passions, and pains that, for many of the writers, are still raw. Explaining how their lives might continue after fundamentalism, these writers offer a spiritual lifeline for others who may be questioning their faith. Foreword by Thomas Moore

"Most self-help books are trite. They don't tell you anything you don't already know, and if you could follow their advice, you wouldn't need to read the book in the first place. This book, however, is radically different. It assumes that you are a normal happy person and want to experience the misery that so many others complain about. It gives some great advice on how to bring yourself to hell on earth, -- and bring all of your family, friends, and co-workers right along with you! Best of all, you can do all this while rolling on the floor with laughter. Give this book to anyone whose cheerful mood annoys you when you are down in the dumps. I totally recommend this book for anyone even slightly Unhappy or those who love them !!" "I totally recommend this book for anyone even slightly Unhappy or those who love them !! It's fabulous. We had a great time, saw ourselves and others in the pages and since, unfortunately, this whole family is part of the 20% of happy people in a miserable world, the laughs were frequent and heartfelt." "I've read through bunches of self-help books. Of all of them, I think "Born to Win" and this book are the only two that will persist on my shelves." "The book is a delightful take hon the American way. Written with insight and humor, the author takes you into misery as a way of life and offers clever ways of maintaining your miserable status. I read it in one evening and thoroughly enjoyed the wacky humor and uncanny knowledge of how we make ourselves sick with unnecessary worry and self doubt. Read it with a sense of humor and you can't help but love it the way I did." "This is a great book to have on your living room coffee table or bedside, so that you can pick it up often, open to any page, and laugh at how ludicrous we can be on a regular basis. I have taught social dance classes for over 20 years, and my goal is to provide an arena in which people have the freedom to laugh at themselves while learning about something new. Gil's book provides me and others with that freedom. I highly recommend it!" "This is a good book when one feels down and needs an uplift. It allows one to realize not to take life so seriously. Very enjoyable reading."
