    This is a book I wrote. Because I wrote it, I had to figure out what to put on the back cover to explain what it is. I tried to write a long, third-person summary that would imply how great the book is and also sound vaguely authoritative—like maybe someone who isn’t me wrote it—but I soon discovered that I’m not sneaky enough to pull it off convincingly. So I decided to just make a list of things that are in the book:



    Stories about things that happened to me

    Stories about things that happened to other people because of me

    Eight billion dollars*

    Stories about dogs

    The secret to eternal happiness*

    *These are lies. Perhaps I have underestimated my sneakiness!
