While it might be funny, I've never seen anything like this come from any of the books I've read. In fact, some of your "succeeded" advice is mentioned as "wrong" precisely for the reasons they can fail. In fact:

> retrofit some facts and omit the others to backfill the story so that it seems like a straight line leading to success/failure.

None of the good ones remotely do this. They mention the failures right along with the successes, and it's rarely a book about "their" success.

Nothing you've read, if you read anything, is of merit, not because of the subject matter, but rather, your poor choices.
