Life is a turbulent journey, fraught with confusion, heartbreak, and inconvenience. This book will not help. Many collections slap together the wit and wisdom of certain authors in the hopes of inspiring a reader at a crucial time in his or her life. This book contains a bouquet of alarming but inescapable truths from the work of Lemony Snicket, along with selections from his unpublished papers and remarks he has made at dinner parties and anarchist riots, in order to remind the reader that even the loftiest of inspirations contains a sharp, bitter kernel of dread - and vice versa.

Mr Snicket has spent the last several eras researching the travails of the Baudelaire orphans. He is the author of thirteen books collectively entitled A Series of Unfortunate Events, as well as the supplementary materials The Beatrice Letters and Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography. During his spare time, he gathers evidence and is considered something of an expert by leading authorities. Lemony Snicket published his first book in 1999 and has not had a good night's sleep since. To his horror and dismay, he has no wife or children, only enemies, associates, and the occasional loyal manservant. Lemony Snicket's extended family, if they were alive, would describe him as a distinguished scholar, an amateur connoisseur, and an outright gentleman. A lifelong resident, he now divides his time, and is currently at work.
