Is it possible that Life comes with an operating manual?

Meet the Author

Tom Shadyac is the film director behind such blockbuster hits as Ace Ventura: Pet Detective; The Nutty Professor; Liar, Liar; Patch Adams; and Bruce Almighty. A recent brush with death compelled Tom to make the feature documentary, I AM, and to write this book. Both seek answers to two questions, “What’s wrong with the world?” and “What can we do about it?”


“While he sits on the cushion of advantage he falls asleep.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson
