Overview

"Virtually anyone who reads this book can appreciably widen his or her 'free will' and intentionally create happiness and satisfaction instead of needless pain."
--Albert Ellis, Ph.D.

Building on twists and paradoxes, Bill L. Little shows you how to get rid of problems by understanding how they are produced. This warm-hearted, witty book dares you to cling to your neurotic symptoms, your depressions, your anxieties, and your unhealthy relationships and mess up your life with sundry colorful phobias, dependencies, and addictions. Misery is an art--not just a state of mind. Learn it. Wallow in it. Use it. Sneak up on your troubles from behind and throw them all into hopeful perspective. From a wise counselor who has been helping people with problems since the 1970s, this book is probably one of the most enlightening you'll ever read and also one of the funniest.

Bill L. Little, a native of Gideon, Missouri, holds a B.A. from East Texas Baptist College, a Th.M. from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, an M.S. from Southern Illinois University, and a Ph.D. from Washington University. He has taught at Washington University, University of Missouri in St. Louis, and Missouri Baptist College and has conducted conferences on alcoholism, marriage and family relations, stress, communications, management, and motivation.
