The author of the e-books Obama: The Greatest President in the History of Everything and How to Fix Everything in America Forever explains how Americans can finally overcome the insidious legacy of the 1960s.

As Frank J. Fleming reveals in this delightfully sarcastic self-help book, every American has a little hippie inside, preaching free love and poor hygiene, and keeping him from achieving his full potential. It's a relic from the 1960s, kept alive in acid flashbacks and pop culture, which affects decision-making in unconscious ways. The only solution is to punch that inner hippie as hard and as often as possible.

Punch Your Inner Hippie hilariously explains how to understand and defeat your inner hippie. Fleming looks back at history to describe all of the civilizations ruined by hippies and to warn of the destruction in store for the U.S. if they are not stopped. He reveals the symptoms of hippie-ism, from laziness and dependence to whining and protesting, so you can gauge the strength of your own inner hippie.

Fleming also shows you how to beat your inner hippie by constructing a tank of awesome out of the four parts of being awesome: Independence, Gratitude, Ambition, and Confidence. If you punch your inner hippie every day, it will eventually be too broken and defeated to move, and you will finally become as awesome as America.

Back cover copy

Finally, a book that takes on the actual root cause of all failure: the hippie inside us all. In this delightfully sarcastic self-help book, Frank J. Fleming reveals that you don't achieve true improvement through slogans or positive thinking; you achieve it only by punching your inner hippie as hard and as often as possible.

Fleming helps you understand the enemy inside you and explains that hippies didn't arise just in the '60s but have been ruining civilizations since the dawn of time, as they will do to the United States if they are not stopped. He reveals the symptoms of hippie-ism--laziness, dependence, whining, and protesting--so you can gauge the strength of your own inner hippie. And, most important, he explains that there is but one way to deal with that annoying loser who keeps each of us from realizing our full potential: a punch right to his stupid face.

Do you doubt this is possible? That's your inner hippie talking. It's time to shut him up.
