When an enormous, self-help manuscript lands on the desk of Edwin de Valu, a stressed-out, overworked and underpaid editor at New York's Panderic Press, its fate seems destined to be the bin. Edwin's cynicism of self-help books, coupled with his filthy mood that morning, results in his dismissing Tupac Soiree's What I Learned on the Mountain in the most ignominious fashion - he doesn't even bother to reply and simply dumps the manuscript in the trash can.
However, the trouble is that Tupac Soiree's doorstopper is a unique thing - a self-help book that actually works - and before Edwin knows it, a chain of events has been started that will have enormous consequences not just on his own life but for the world at large.
