Summary

You’ve heard of Sigmund Freud. You’ve heard of Carl Jung. But have you heard of Abe Surde? Surde is a humorist and master mixologist who tackles, with a smile and a wink, one hundred commonly irritating and upsetting personality types seen in everyday life. 
From disconcerting creeps to loudmouth louts and worrisome weirdos, Surde shares with readers his channeled theories on the origins of bad behavior and why people suck. His assemblage of wacky yet clever musings combined in a quasi-serious and silly way adds levity to a world gone mad. 
This nonsensical collection amuses while simultaneously serving kernels of truth that surprisingly hit the mark. Surde's “divine” insights will tickle your funny bone unexpectedly, the way a dramatic comedy can suddenly spark a fit of laughter, because you didn't see it coming. 
The book version is a great icebreaker for parties and a fun distraction for anyone disturbed by the actions of another. It's also the perfect gift for that special someone in your life. 
Note of warning for delicate readers: the book contains adult language, references to sex and drugs, but only minimally to rock and roll.

    The New York Times–bestselling parody of Voltaire’s Candide that was banned in France and went on to become a salacious cult classic. Candy is a perfect, idealistic, innocent girl, born on Valentine’s Day, which, her daddy says, is why she’s so beautiful. At college in Racine, Wisconsin, she listens earnestly to Professor Mephisto’s lecture on philosophy and how “deep and aching are the needs of man”—and takes his pronouncement to heart. She will dedicate the rest of her days to bringing the sweet balm of her warmth to all those lonely men on her arduous path to spiritual enlightenment—a hunchback, a crazed gynecologist in a bar bathroom, her father’s lecherous twin brother, her guru at the nutty Cracker Foundation . . . It is in Tibet, during an earthquake, that Candy will finally find full . . . enlightenment. This rollicking tale, by a duo of authors including the legendary Dr. Strangelove screenwriter who also wrote for Saturday Night Live and toured with the Rolling Stones over the course of his colorful career, is, in the words of William Styron, “wickedly funny to read and morally bracing as only good satire can be.”This ebook features an illustrated biography of Terry Southern including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate and an extended biography of Mason Hoffenberg.
