There are many books out there designed to hold your hand, lead you through life, sport an eternal smile and believe that life is all sunshine and rainbows. Notion Press, India’s leading self-publishing platform, presents to you Life Sucks. Get Used To It. by Mohammad Zubair – an Anti-Self-Help book that is filled with sarcastic quips and the brutal reality of life.
Excerpt from Life sucks. Get used to it. :
“I hope you will understand that there is light at the end of the tunnel; that there is a way you can make a place for yourself in this big, bad world.
It’s definitely not as easy as the self-help book you picked up from your corner book store would like you to believe. There are compromises you have to make, whether it’s physical, psychological or worse – moral.
To achieve any notion of success and to drive us forward, we need something that lights our entire being on fire. Like something that really motivates you to get off your ass and Get. Shit. Done.”
What the book is about?
We live in times where memes are considered the best way to communicate ergo, we use humour as our coping mechanism. Most of us are victims of capitalism where we live, sleep and breathe work and our parents are on our social media sending us friend requests. It’s a strange world we live in. It’s not just strange, it is also terrible in its entity and surviving in a world that is prone to evil, temptation and darkness is not an easy feat.
Why you should pick up this book?
So this book is here to remove your rose-tinted glasses and urge you to face reality and amidst all the strife, find the answer to living your best life and achieving some modicum of happiness. This book is here to tell you that there are chances that you may not get a happy ending but you can get one you can live with. Available on notionpress.com and other leading e-commerce websites Amazon and Flipkart.
About the author:
Mohamed Zubair is a Paradox. The author considers himself an opportunist but is reluctant and reclusive. He has often found himself to be an optimist but lives life with a certain degree of cynicism.
Zubair enjoys writing poetry, listening to Qawwalis and harbours an unhealthy obsession with sarcasm, movies and T.V. If an Indian aunty happens to ask what he does, you might say that he works as a content writer, marketing consultant, and more recently, as a life coach with a unique approach.
Zubair is firm that the only thing humans can know with certainty is the fact that Dosas taste better than idlis, and remains adamant that he’ll never reveal how he truly feels about Vadas. ‘Life sucks. Get used to it.’ is his debut book.
