The enhanced eBook edition of writer and musician George Watsky’s How to Ruin Everything provides photographic evidence of Watsky’s assorted misadventures.

Are you a sensible, universally competent individual
Are you tired of the crushing monotony of leaping gracefully from one lily pad of success to the next
Are you sick of doing everything right   In this brutally honest and humorous debut, George Watsky chronicles the small triumphs over humiliation that make life bearable and how he has come to accept defeat as necessary to personal progress. The essays in How to Ruin Everything range from the absurd (how he became an international ivory smuggler) to the comical (his middle-school rap battle dominance) to the revelatory (his experiences with epilepsy), yet all are delivered with the type of linguistic dexterity and self-awareness that has won Watsky nearly 800,000 YouTube subscribers. Alternately ribald and emotionally resonant, How to Ruin Everything announces a versatile writer with a promising career ahead.
