it was amazing

Everybody needs to read this book once in their life.

For the entire book, the author is debunking positive thinking, she references several journal articles, connects her research to capitalism and neoliberal ideology, and she shows how positive psychology is a tool to advance the ideals of the top 1%.

I have so much to say about this book, I don't even know what to say. So out of laziness and being overwhelmed I'm going to just end my fangirling here. Enjoy.
