Publisher's Summary

In a world filled with trolls, we all need to live life more like a goblin. What does it mean to "live life like a goblin"? It means to give no f--ks, but also all the f--ks in the world at the same time. It means to be constantly anxiety-ridden while also eternally optimistic. A goblin's heart, specifically John Goblikon's, is filled with love, joy, angst, constant quandary, Chili's Southwestern egg rolls, metal, and empathy. Through the goblin eyes of being an internet celebrity/insurance salesman/rock-and-roll mascot for the Goblin Metal outfit, Nekrogoblikon, we learn about life, death, business, food, music, travel, culture, dating, school, drinking, compassion, and much more!

John walks listeners through crucial life steps, from becoming internet famous, to getting dates with special someones, to even correct ordering techniques for the perfect meal at Chili's.

Have a problem? John Goblikon assumes he knows how to help you solve it...all in this new, for-sure-to-be-a-New-York-Times-best-seller-and-win-like-100-awards debut: John Goblikon's Guide to Living Your Best Life.

Eye Opening Experience

Loved it!
The most memorable moment was learning "excuses are like assholes, it's all about presentation."
John Goblikon is a narrative sensation, unlike any other.

Thanks to this audiobook, during hard times in America due to the COVID-19 pandemic; I as an essential worker, took a shot listening to this book as an outlet for my feelings.

Because of the lessons learned in this book, from start to finish, I willingly restrained myself from quitting my warehouse job and starting my new life as a Chaturbate model. Although my delectable yams would've been a hit and definitely put me in the top 200 position on the site, I made the right call and I'm sticking my neck out for people in need, rather than selfishly be concerned about my income.

I recommend this book for anyone going though a rough time RIGHT NOW (see what I did l there?) and in need of an escape from this hellscape of a reality.

P.S. Told my co-worker Brad (who isn't technically classified as a Brad but still associated by name) to fuck off.

P.S.S Some insight on Brad, he is at least 6 foot tall and 250lbs, in his free time he likes jamming out to Type O Negative and practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu... He's a little upset with me but I will gift him this audiobook to make amends.

Live Your BEST GREEN LIFE

Filled with funny anecdotes and segues, John goblikon is one of the funniest authors alive. His love of Chili's is unmatched, his insights are brilliant, and he's built himself up as the internet famous/ "most popular adopted" sibling in the band NEKROGOBLIKON practically from nothing. Was skeptical at first if this book would be any good, or if, as he says, filled with empty pages to fill space, to get his next advance. the audio quality is excellent and adds an extra layer to this genuine novel. The handpicked quotes included will stay with me forever, as in quoting them he adds his interpretations and views. Loved the book, love the band

Greatest Literature Ever

This book is easily they best written and performed piece of literature on the planet. No really! John is a genius and way before his time. And Nicky aka Scorpion aka the best voice in the business adds tremendous depth and value. If you want to Live, Love, Laugh then purchase this. And do it twice. Like me! Clint Goblikon, Johns estranged cousin from Iowa.

Fantastic, a must read for all.

This was an amazing book from beginning to end. Actually had me laughing and in tears in some parts. Very well done! Side note, Scorpion should write and read his own book at some point.
