Holding this book in your hands, do you find yourself worried that people around
you might see what you are reading?
If so, why should that be? Reading a book is in no way an endorsement of the
contents of that book. Reading is a quest for knowledge. There should be nothing
wrong with wanting to learn why other people think differently than you, or
differently than the group in which you find yourself. You don’t have to already
agree with everything you read – in fact it would be boring if you did.
If you are the type of person who is not intimidated by the opinions of those
around you, and could bravely walk into a church carrying a copy of this book,
then you will enjoy reading it. But if you are a person who would be afraid to be
seen with this book, then you really should read it. It just might help you
understand why you feel pressure to conform to the ideas of those around you.
The cover of this book was designed to attract attention – a parody of a well-
known image, a shocking title, and some nudity. These elements were all meant
to increase the book’s fame (or infamy). However, the cover also communicates
the book's central theme: Beware of Higher Powers.
