Fit To Be Tied!

The worst book I ever attempted to read on the Amway reading list was a book about marriage and relationships called Fit To Be Tied. Every Ken and Barbie that slunk across the stage at major functions was recommending their cult followers read it. Or if they didn’t read it at least buy it. Its part of the recommended reading list and books are part of the tool scam and this is how the Diamonds make the majority of their money. Every little bit helps to make them richer!

Ambot buys the book. Probably the sack of shit Platinum pressured him into it. I’m not sure if Ambot read it or not. I doubt it. He’s not much of a reader. I like reading books so I gave it a shot.

I couldn’t even get through the first chapter. It was all god damn this and Jesus Christ that.

I realize that books are subjective. People have different tastes. What one person likes another person won’t. I recently had a reader from South Africa show up on a post where I provided a link to a free ebook, David Bach’s financial book Start Over Finish Rich, and s/he called it rubbish. Although I don’t follow everything Bach says I do like his books and sensible financial advice but I understand how someone who is brainwashed by the Amway cult will not accept financial advice from anyone but their scamming upline.

Back to Fit To Be Tied. 

It was written by a husband and wife and as I recall they went back and forth every paragraph or so making it confusing and hard to follow. Throw in all the Jesuses and it became BORING!!!

There are very few books that are so bad that I can not finish reading them. I’ll plug through hoping it’ll get better. Sometimes I’ll put them aside for a few months and get back to them. This is the 2nd book in the past 10 years that I didn’t finish reading. The other was a book written by Derek Lundy called Godforsaken Sea. It was billed as a tight and gripping read as The Perfect Storm and Into Thin Air. I’ve read both of those books and the author was able to put the reader right there onto Mount Everest or the middle of the raging Atlantic Ocean so I was expecting the same gripping thrilling reading experience. Godforsaken Sea was a snoozer. I gave it a good effort and abandoned ship halfway through.

I can  push through a book with biblical references but not one that is littered with them in every sentence so that the point is completely lost. On the other hand someone who enjoys going to those religious revival meetings held in big tents may love reading Fit To Be Tied. The reason this book is shoved down our throats by the Amway cult leaders is because part of any cult’s brainwashing techniques involves religion or religious teaching. Reading an over the top religious book about relationships is not my thing. Its an Amway cult thing. I’m not sure what the author’s connection is to the Amway cult but absolutely there would have to be some serious behind the scenes deal making going on or the cult leaders wouldn’t be flogging this book at the major functions. It would be my guess that printing this book costs a dollar or two and that’s for mass production at least 10,000 copies. The upline scammers sell it for at least $15 maybe more I don’t remember what we paid for it. Lets just say for the sake of argument that WWDB buys 10,000 copies of the book so their Diamonds can flog it on their cult followers. The publisher and authors want to cover their costs and make a little profit because they’re probably not making too many sales otherwise on this little gem so let’s just say they’ve struck a deal with WWDB to sell them for $4 each for bulk purchases. WWDB scammers sell the book to the cult followers for $15. Their profit is $11 per book or making $110,000 net profit on a $40,000 book buying investment. This book can be part of the tool scam over and over because the ambots that attended this year’s Family Reunion and FED will not be the same group next year because most of them have quit so the Diamonds can wave it from the stage year after year and make a few thousand more sales each year.

Fit To Be Tied wasn’t my thing but I could see how a brainwashed cult follower who has been subjected to the cult leader’s screwed up religious beliefs might read the book. A cult audience might not have been the authors intention but a sale is a sale.

I didn’t read it very far but I’m sure the contents must match the WWDB philosophy. Religion and someone of a higher power to worship like your group’s cult leader. Women to stay home while the husband works. Husband to be the sole decision maker. Male chauvinist teachings. Submission. Ask permission. That’s my guess what I would have been tormented with if I’d continued reading because that’s part of the WWDB cult teaching.

Not interested. I give any book that bores me and pisses me off that I stop reading it after a few pages two thumbs down.

Pass on this stinker.

That’s the reality when you write a book. You’re going to get good reviews and bad reviews. Everyone has different tastes.

Why didn’t those Diamond fuckers from the stage flog Harold Robbins novels? You’d think for all the hits my blog gets from ambots searching for “Amway sex” putting those Harold Robbins novels on their required reading list would be flying off the shelves!


  1. Wonder what the cult leaders would say about downloading the book online for free? Or buy the cds,dvds for a fraction of the cost from a ex distributor? Really enjoyed the part in your blog about the religious stuff. Cause it's really irritating for people who cant stand going to church or bible thumpers.

  2. Colin - we were not allowed to download books for free or look for books or CDs for cheap on Ebay or Craigslist. We had to buy them new from upline. We had to put in a tool order every week or upline would be riding your ass and hounding you until you bought at least one thing.

    I prefer to read books that aren't religious or preachy. Amway cultists prefer books that are full of this stuff. Many in our upline belonged to the same church and tried to convert everyone else to join up. Nothing like trying to force your personal beliefs on other people.

  3. Are you aware that the police shut down Amway outlets all over one of the southern States in India, Kerala. Amway bosses are crying over the shoulders of the bureaucrats to allow them to cheat Indians.

  4. Hi Shyam! I'm only aware of the police shutting down Amway outlets from your blog and other bloggers. We don't have Amway outlets over here only Amway head office and other branches that serve as administration and warehouses. I wish the police would shut them all down!

  5. Amway corp is worried all of india will follow shutting them out. Then the ambots,ibofb & cult leaders will have problems their worldwide sales are going down. Since i heard india is a huge market.

  6. Colin - the market in India is huge. There was one person in our cross line who went to India and signed up enough poor unfortunate souls so he became Platinum. Our Platinum was very attentive to anyone who had contacts in India and China who could be signed up as IBO's and find others in their country to sign up. Fortunately neither my husband or I know anyone in those countries who can be victimized by the Amway cult.

  7. Anna, i get approached quite often from mlm types to promote their deal in asia. But the people are poor enough in those countries. They dont really need us to ruin their lives.

  8. Colin - that's because Asia is hot right now according to the cult leaders. Its obviously been "hot" for a few years now. Evil has no boundaries. Amway IBO's will prey on the poor in 3rd world countries and ruin their lives just as easily as they'll prey on people in the states and ruin their lives too. If anyone in Amway tells you they're making money these are people with no morals. They'll destroy the lives of others in order to chase that dream that Amway cult leaders tell them will be all theirs.


Comments are moderated but we publish just about everything. Even brainwashed ambots who show up here to accuse us of not trying hard enough and that we are lazy, quitters, negative, unchristian dreamstealers. Like we haven’t heard that Amspeak abuse from the assholes in our upline!

If your comment didn’t get published it could be one of these reasons:
1. Is it the weekend? We don’t moderate comments on weekends. Maybe not every day during the week either. Patience.
2. Racist/bigoted comments? Take that shit somewhere else.
3. Naming names? Public figures like politicians and actors and people known in Amway are probably OK – the owners, Diamonds with CDs or who speak at functions, people in Amway’s publicity department who write press releases and blogs. Its humiliating for people to admit their association with Amway so respect their privacy if they’re not out there telling everyone about the love of their life.
4. Gossip that serves no purpose. There are other places to dish about what Diamonds are having affairs or guessing why they’re getting divorced. If you absolutely must share that here – don’t name names. I get too many nosy ambots searching for this. Lets not help them find this shit.
5. Posting something creepy anonymously and we can’t track your location because you’re on a mobile device or using hide my ass or some other proxy. I attracted an obsessed fan and one of my blog administrators attracted a cyberstalker. Lets keep it safe for everyone. Anonymous is OK. Creepy anonymous and hiding – go fuck yourselves!
6. Posting something that serves no purpose other than to cause fighting.
7. Posting bullshit Amway propaganda. We might publish that comment to make fun of you. Otherwise take your agenda somewhere else. Not interested.
8. Notice how this blog is written in English? That's our language so keep your comments in English too. If you leave a comment written in another language then we either have to use Google translate to put it into English so everyone can understand what you wrote or we can hit the Delete button. Guess which one is easier for us to do?
9. We suspect you're a troublemaking Amway asshole.
10. Your comment got caught in the spam filter. Gets checked occasionally. We’ll get to you eventually and approve it as long as it really isn’t spam.
