Chapter Two is introduced by a fake quote from Aristotle, who never in fact wrote that "Criticism is something we can avoid by saying nothing, doing nothing, being nothing." Instead, such banalities are more properly credited to a book called Seeds of Greatness by Denis Waitley,* a hack motivational speaker and author who once served as an executive for a skin-care Ponzi scheme.One of those things that pretty much says it all.

* "In 2007, Denis Waitley resigned from his post as a member of the board of directors of USANA Health Sciences, Inc., after it was discovered that he did not have a Master's degree from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. In addition to this USANA informed the Wall Street Journal that they were unable to verify Waitley's Ph.D. from the unaccredited La Jolla University."
Definitely, the go-to guy for all your wholesome "advice for living."
