Healing Yourself with Wishful Thinking

Overview

This little book can change your life. If you believe that, you'¬?re well on your way toward HEALING YOURSELF WITH WISHFUL THINKING.

Overview

This little book can change your life. If you believe that, you'¬?re well on your way toward HEALING YOURSELF WITH WISHFUL THINKING. Self-delusion, argues humorist Arthur Bloch, is not the obstacle to happiness, it'¬?s the key. Through such innovative techniques as "never-minding," "glossing over," and "positive forgetfulness," Bloch shows how to empty the mind (completely), tune into the Muzak of the spheres, and answer that age-old question, "How many angels can dance on the head of a moron?" It'¬?s the first New Age book to appeal equally to the skeptic and the believer, who can both agree on the healing power of a sense of humor.‚Ä¢ A hilarious parody of New Age literature from the author of the Murphy'¬?s Law series.‚Ä¢ Arthur Bloch'¬?s Murphy'¬?s Law books have sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide and spent more than 140 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list.

    New Age Self Help book gets the Murphy's Law treatment

    This little book more than delivers on its sly promise to amuse and delight. It also provides a concise yet comprehensive survey of the entire astonishingly broad spectrum of New Age hooey. I was laughing out loud right away, WISHFUL THINKING is that good. Before I had even finished the first chapter, I thought of a half dozen friends to whom I must send a copy of this sweetly skewering, smart and sassy, sly and sophisticated, easy to read book. While it pokes fun at New Age malarky, this funny little book also supplies a brief course in critical thinking. Perfectly organized and accessible, beautiful printed and produced. My highest recommendation!
