How to Good-Bye Depression

coverI’ve seen some pretty wacky self-published books listed on Amazon, but never, ever, have I seen one as purely absurd as this one. The title alone had me giggling: How to Good-Bye Depression: If You Constrict Anus 100 Times Everyday. Malarkey? or Effective Way? by Hiroyuki Nishigaki. Luckily a book description is provided as well:

I think constricting anus 100 times and denting navel 100 times in succession everyday is effective to good-bye depression and take back youth. You can do so at a boring meeting or in a subway. I have known 70-year-old man who has practiced it for 20 years. As a result, he has good complexion and has grown 20 years younger. His eyes sparkle. He is full of vigor, happiness and joy. He has neither complained nor born a grudge under any circumstance. Furthermore, he can make love three times in succession without drawing out.

In addition, he also can have burned a strong beautiful fire within his abdomen. It can burn out the dirty stickiness of his body, release his immaterial fiber or third attention which has been confined to his stickiness. Then, he can shoot out his immaterial fiber or third attention to an object, concentrate on it and attain happy lucky feeling through the success of concentration.

If you don’t know concentration which gives you peculiar pleasure, your life looks like a hell.

You can’t make this stuff up, folks. And the book has proven noteworthy enough to garner 33 customer reviews. I’m sure they’re all quite serious.

    This just proves you can write a book about anything… Reading about this book makes me want to write a book about the banananus. For those that don't know, it's that little black turd at the bottom of a banana, inside the peal. I recomend not eating it. Any ideas for titles? Okay, I'm just joking, but eating that thing is no joke. Don't do it. It will lead to all of life's problems.

    I hadn't heard of the "banananus." Of course, now I'm tempted to eat one.

    Goodness. I've heard about women doing pelvic floor exercises at bus stops but this kind of thing makes me want to use the car more. =:-)
