In this book I have attempted to solve each and every one of life's problems. And I have succeeded. Dear Listener, Using letters, emails, tweets and telegrams I will show you how the things in your life that make you sad, low or anxious can soon appear trivial, insignificant and like a fish. In short, I will butter your parsnips.

I listened to this book 6 months ago after being a smoker for many years. I have tried and failed many times to stop. I think I can safely say I am now a non smoker, not a puff since. I dont think about smoking at all, even when my friends go for one on nights out. I would have been jealous in past attempts and nicked a puff. You still have cravings when the book has finished but they are not as bad as when I have tried cold turkey or nicotine replacement. Also they didn't last for long and were really easy to deal with. I didnt want to scream at anyone!! My husband also listened but he did not quit for long. I think you have to want to stop! The way he writes is not modern (it was written in the 1980s and he was 60 odd), reminded me of my Grandad, which I liked but could come across as patronising at times. Any way, the NHS should give this out at their stop smoking clinics, save them tons of money! Good luck!
