I need some positive reviews on my ebook

Hey ,
I have published a book to help people to overcome porn and masturbation addiction .. I have discovered a way to overcome this .. I have tried it and it is 100% working .. so I decided to let people know about that to help them , as you know that this problem is severe and so many people are suffering from it all over the world ..
Here it is

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074T46QRN

I made about 75 sales (paid and free , most of tgem are free ) since I published the book ( it is about 4 months now ) ..
But I have no reviews yet .. I have noticed that the sales are weak , so I started free promotions and I got about 15 downloads in the last 10 days ..
When I read other authors experience , I find that my book is not doing great at all ..
I don't want to buy reviews as I don't want to deceive readers ..
So , I am giving my book for free in dec31 , please download it and write your review so I can edit it to meet the needs of the readers .. I can also send PDF copies to you to read it and review .. here is the ebook
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074T46QRN
I think reviews will tell readers whether this book is good or not .. I hope someone can help me with this ..
Regards

You won't get them here - not even for free.
Free doesn't count as a sale.
Asking for positive reviews in your first post is also not a good idea.

This really isn't the place to hawk your book or to solicit reviews, but I doubt you'll get the positive reviews you crave. Self-help books written by people with no demonstrated expertise are inevitability flummery, at best well-intentioned but innocuous, at worst dangerous. A look inside reveals it is not well written and is very poorly formatted, with unjustified text and no paragraphing. Sorry, not even for free...giving it away for free is not a "sale."

You could start by sorting the format. There is a space before every comma and the full stops are doubled and again have a leading space. Assuming you wrote it in Word just use global search and replace to correct this and upload the revised file and click publish again. If the errors aren't obvious when viewed in Word then the cause is more obscure. You could try viewing the file in Word using the option to see non-printing characters and see if there are hidden spaces hidden. So to speak.

The premise of your book gave me a great laugh. Thought at first it was satire. Apart from format and grammar issues mentioned by others, maybe readers don't want to overcome these 'addictions'. Hence poor sales. How about writing a book on people's addiction to money. Would be interested to know how to beat that one. Any experience? Or any other thoughts on moral rectitude? Can I take it you're an expert in human psychology?

Thanks for all of your replys .. they were so helpful to me .. I didn't know that it is that bad .. I think I should put this book ( if I can call it a book ) off the store now till I fix the issues you told me about .
I think I should hire a professional writer to write it correctly . Or at least a native English speaker .
I am so grateful that you told me the issues of the book .. and sorry if it was too bad , I promise to write better books and I will not published untill I make sure that it deserves to be on Amazon Kindle store ..
Actually , this thread was so embarrassing to me and I tried to delete it .. but I couldn't . I think it will be there on the community threads and on Google results to make everyone think twice before publishing anything on Amazon Kindle store ..

Thanks again for your feedback
