You’ve heard of Sigmund Freud. You’ve heard of Carl Jung. But have you heard of Abe Surde? Surde is a humorist and master mixologist who tackles–with a smile and a wink–one hundred commonly irritating, upsetting, and obnoxious personality types seen in everyday life.
From disconcerting creeps to loudmouth louts and worrisome weirdos, Surde shares with readers his channeled theories on the origins of bad behavior. His assemblage of wacky yet clever musings combined in a quasi-serious and silly way adds levity to a world gone mad.
His profound quest to understand why people suck results in a collection of nonsensical reasoning that amuses while simultaneously serving small kernels of truth that surprisingly hit the mark.
This book of “divine” insight is one of those guilty pleasures that tickle your funny bone unexpectedly.
The paperback version of WHY PEOPLE SUCK is a great icebreaker for parties and a fun distraction for anyone disturbed by the actions of another. It’s also a great gift for someone who needs a little hint.
Note of warning for delicate readers: the book contains adult language, references to sex and drugs, but only minimally to rock and roll. $0.99 on Kindle.

Sex Hell is an absurd comic fantasy about the confusion of relationships. How is love related to sex, and how is sex related to love—and do love and sex need to be related at all? $0.99 on Kindle.
