From the book's synopsis:

Are you as sick of all this pop-psychology, new-age advice as we are? Do you get stabbing pains in the gut every time you hear the word dysfunctional, codependent, or inner child? Do book titles like Single Has-Been Actors and the Tenured University Professors Who Love Them make your head throb and your vision blur?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then we have the answer. This desktop display is dedicated to everyone who has even one ounce of rebellion le

Who doesn't tire of all of the self-help books and programs, especially here in California?
Read this irreverent little number for a nice respite from all of that crap! These are "affirmations for cynics" and will keep you turning page after page after cynical page!
I have even given this book as a gift to my more cynical friends. ;) Here's a taste: "Since no one seems willing to take responsibility for anything, it is best for me to take responsibility for everything."

It's possible that this book was written with me in mind. On every page I was either doubled over in laughter or thinking 'Oh, crap. That's what it's like to hang out with me'. After reading this I'm not sure why I have friends. Highly recommended!!
This is a funny, light-hearted yet eye opening book...written tongue-in-cheek...pointing out the dysfunctional thinking that we can fall into and yet convince ourselves that the thinking is normal or justified.
Oh my. Make sure to read this near a bathroom as you will laugh so hard that it will make you need to pee. Kleenex is also helpful for the tears running down your face!!

This book had tremendous promise, but out of 365 entries only 20 or so were really very funny. Most of them fell in the first few pages, so I think the authors knew it.
Simply hilarious!

A quote to illustrate this:
"I am entitled to everything I want, even if it is someone else's and even if I already have it."
Funny as!!! "Today I will equate material possessions with love." - whenever I need a good laugh I peruse this book!
Cracks me up! A good little laugh of a book!
