Everything I really need to know about the afterlife I learned from my friend James's dead hamster, Jasmine

From Amazon's description of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Pet Psychic Communication" (I know, I know -- what other kind of guide to pet psychic communication is there?):

A professional animal communicator and pet psychic explores the wisdom, healing power, and sacred bond between humans and their four-legged companions. With client stories of psychic experiences and at-home exercises, Debbie McGillivray shows readers how to have a psychic conversation with their pet, help an animal with its emotional scars and fears, connect psychically with a lost pet, learn to scan a pet for pain, and communicate with a pet that has passed on.

Coming soon: "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Telekinesis".

To learn more about Ms. McGillivray (who I like to call "The Horse Thinkerer"), visit FAQ. (Best question: "Will my animal give away any personal secrets?")

And the other day I saw "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Past Life Regression." I guess they're thinking, "Well, as long as our audience consists of complete idiots..."

The book "The complete Idiot's guide to Enhancing self-esteem" actually exists!

If it doesn't start out by saying "Return this book right now and buy "The genius's guide to Enhancing Self-Esteem", or at least "The reasonably intelligent person's guide to enhancing your Self-Esteem", it's obviously worthless.

Oh, and I keep meaning to buy this, but I never seem to get around to it...
