Good Advice From Bad People:

Good Advice From Bad People Selected Wisdom from Murderers, Stock Swindlers, and Lance Armstrong
Non-Fiction: Biography, 192 pages
Book Count: 66

After our last book of people that started out bad and turned good, we thought we would read this book of good advice that the creator of didn't follow.  This book is filled with a quote from some one and then a short 1-2 page biography of them that points out how they did the exact opposite of their advice.  It includes info on self help book writers that: went bankrupt, got divorced, ended up in jail or otherwise were the last person you would want to take advice from on a subject if they did what they said to do.  There are also entries on politicians,  sport stars, and televangelists. In short a who's who of people who said, "Do what I say, not what I do."
