alexanderraban said: You’ve just described a common genre of promotional literature. Companies in the X business publish “How to X” pamphlets that are notionally instructional, but are really designed to convice you it’s impossible to do X correctly yourself.
i don’t doubt it, but this wouldn’t directly funnel money into an obvious industry. it would be more like, say, a book called So You Think You Can Breakdance, and then there would some clip art of someone injuring themselves along with a caption along the lines of NOT AS EASY AS IT LOOKS, IS IT? YA STUPE.
i want to do a self-help book series like X For Dummies, only it explains in detail how hard the thing is, and how you’re basically never going to get it right unless you go back to school for it, and you’re going to fuck all your shit up if you try to go the DIY route so you should really just shell out for someone who actually knows what they’re doing.
