Self-Help is Garbage and We Publish it!

“This might be the last self-help book you will ever read!” Explains Arroe Collins on iheart radio during an interview with Ben DeHaven and the author of Confessions of a Self-Help Writer. This is powerful and really fun. The most amazing thing to us so far-is no one seems to care. Because caring that it is garbage, means admitting your a failure.

Confessions Of A Self-Help Writer: You Won’t Believe That It Could Be True

Chicago, IL,  2014 – If you’ve ever picked up a tell-all biography of a celebrity or a title from the self-help section at the bookstore, you don’t want to miss Confessions of a Self-Help Writer (The Journal of Michael Enzo) by Benjamin W. DeHaven from Lagniappe Publishing.

A ghost, a philanthropist, a con man, a devout Catholic, a gigolo, a savior, an heir, a common man, a writer, and an addict are just some of the words used to describe Michael Enzo. “He’s defrauded an industry for almost 20 years by exploiting people’s insecurities and profiting from them,” says DeHaven, former friend and collaborator. Some sources credit Enzo with ghost-writing more than 108 self-help books on behalf of celebrities, politicians and business leaders.

“After failing to make what he considered to be a positive impact on society he began to destroy those closest to him,” DeHaven says, “including me.” More than likely these two friends contributed more to the field of self-help, while profiting from it, than they will ever know. Believing they could only understand people’s problems by suffering along with them, they lived on the razor’s edge.

Their roller coaster friendship was eventually ruptured by their mutual involvement with an adult film star and entered a new chapter in a federal courthouse in Philadelphia last year. Enzo mysteriously disappeared before sentencing and is still wanted.

“This journal was salvaged from Enzo’s New Orleans estate after hurricane Katrina and was originally hidden by his wife,” says DeHaven. In an effort to clear his conscience, DeHaven has released the personal journal of his longtime friend Michael Enzo. It is DeHaven’s hope that people will start helping themselves again after reading it. “To read it is to discover what turns someone from preaching salvation towards seeking its destruction. This is a true story.”

A graduate of Columbia College in Chicago, Benjamin DeHaven earned an MBA from Tulane University in New Orleans. Currently residing in Virginia, DeHaven began his writing career with Stone United, a Chicago-based film company that works primarily in independent film. He has written for numerous magazines and media outlets and edited screenplays. Additionally, he was the editor-in-chief of the Nola Shopper, a free art newspaper and the second-largest monthly paper in the New Orleans MSA.
