Would you pay $100 to read the musings of the man who co-created "Two and a Half Men" and "The Big Bang Theory"?
What if it were for charity?
Chuck Lorre, arch-nemesis of Charlie Sheen, will release a new coffee table book called "What Doesn't Kill Us, Makes Us Bitter" in October. The proceeds will go to the Dharma-Grace Foundation, established by Lorre in 1999 to further his support of the Venice Family Clinic, which provides free medical care.
The book will feature the title cards Lorre includes at the end of his shows. They are already available - for free - on his website.
Perhaps the most famous of Lorre's vanity cards appeared during as Charlie Sheen's drug-and-alcohol problems threatened production of "Two and a Half Men."
"I exercise regularly," Lorre wrote. "I eat moderate amounts of healthy food. I make sure to get plenty of rest. I see my doctor once a year and my dentist twice a year. ... I don't drink. I don't smoke. I don't do drugs. I don't have crazy, reckless sex with strangers."
He concluded: "If Charlie Sheen outlives me, I'm gonna be really pissed."
The book will be published by Simon & Schuster.
