Once you open you mind to this possibility, you can quit beating yourself up. It's all about attitude. It's about the find art of whining. It's about losing your shirt, but keeping your dignity. It's about being dull and boring, but making it work for you. It's about losing friends and influencing nobody. It's about just saying no to dieting because, well, let's be honest, carbs just taste good.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Sharp, funny, satirical, and relevant. If there's such a thing as a winning book for 'losers,' this is it."
-- Doug Gamble, former writer for President Ronald Reagan and George Bush, now writes for various politicians and corporate executives

"These are very funny writers. Martha wrote for Bob Hope; Brad wrote for Jay Leno. No, if we could only get them to write for Carrot Top."
-- Jimmy Brogan, comedian, writer for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

"Martha and her witty pen amazed me even when we worked side by side those many years turning out wisecracks for Bob Hope."
-- Gene Perret, four-time Emmy award-winning writer for Bob Hope, the Carol Burnett Show, and numerous others

"I have fond memories of working with Martha on the Bob Hope Show specials in the 80s and 90s. she's one of a kind!"
-- Bob Mills, comedy writer, lecturer, radio host (www.hope-wrtier.blogspot.com)

    Funny

    I read this book within a couple of hours and kept laughing out loud. It pokes fun at self help books of different topics such as relationships, finances, and dieting to name a few. It is not meant to be a serious self help book, it is meant to be funny and I found it to be funny indeed.

    Delightfully Humorous

    I read this book in one day on my vacation and what a treat. It had me in stitches. A refreshing change for a longtime self help connoisseur like me.
