- No.While I like the cover design: the pencil drawing is well done, vivid, and does fit the theme of showing off a Greek god in action, I find the title and subtitle vague and confusing. The title sounds simple enough at first: "how to be a God"But the question is, what exactly is the book about? Is it a book about achieving personal or business-related success? Is it a serious discussion of religion or theology? Is it a tongue in cheek attempt to parody religious or self-help texts? The subtitle doesn't help, and only continues the cutesy "how to be a god" theme.It would help if the subtitle could be written to give a clue as to what the book is about. For example, if it were a self-help book, you could add something like "How to be a god: A guide to reaching your maximum potential." As it is, I'm not going to buy a book based off a cover that won't even hint what the subject is.
- I would definitely buy this book. The title alone is almost enough for me to purchase the book but the cover image helps sell it. The cover depicts what appears to be Poseidon doing a fairly mundane task; fishing. It seems to support the title in ascending to Godliness from an earthly position (which could indicate a fiction story about a hero's journey as such or it could even just be something like a self help book with touches of Greek/Roman mythology). The black and white art is also a nice touch to amplify this.
