KIRKUS REVIEW

Instant Relief from Twenty-Five of Life's Worst Problems""; or, snap advice on 25 popular self-help topics--alcoholism, drugs, divorce, female orgasm, depression and anxiety, etc.--arranged in alphabetical order for quick referral. Reuben is even discoursing on money nowadays--defining it (""the basis of every human evil and every human good""), and also offering investment advice (you can write to him c/o his agent for a list of current recommendations). Mostly, though, these are the going ""insights"" condensed. Only the obese person can decide to lose weight. The premature ejaculator is depriving his partner of pleasure in revenge for those times when mommy didn't come right away with the milk (treatment includes repeating vehemently to yourself before intercourse, ""I won't spill the milk, I won't spill the milk""). In this format, tripe--but Reuben's breezy, I've-got-all-the-answers approach may stand him in good stead once again.
