waste / wide anarchy of chaos damp and dark

Run that by me again?

"As a speaker and corporate entertainer for the world's largest organizations, he is in constant demand. Andy has spoken at the request of four different United States preseidents and toured military bases around the world, speaking to troops at the request of the US Department of Defense. Arguably, there is no single person on the planet better at weaving subtle, yet life-changing lessons into riveting tales of adventure and intrigue - both on paper and on stage." - from the author blurb of The Lost Choice by Andy Andrews.

Not only is this irritatingly arrogant (single person on the planet!?), but it also essentially says nothing. "Subtle life-changing lessons?" Useless. I will now never read this book. Is there anything you've read either in the blurb or author bio that made you say "NEVER!"? Sometimes I wonder what publishers are thinking...
