It's on the importance of forgiving and being forgiven. To live a life that is pure in faith and heart. To strive to stay on the path. To find the way of the masters that have gone before us.

This book is for them, to all those "Miserable Assholes"! Now for those who know what a satire is, this book is to ridicule and scorn those into changing by seeing what a mess they really are.
