Had it up to here with sugary-sweet affirmation books that ignore the pleasures of resentment and mean-spiritedness? Tired of the self-helpaholics who've been sipping too much chicken soup? Then this book is for you.
Here are 365 splendidly bitter daily meditations that will appeal to the cynic in you. Nowhere else will you find such odes to self-absorption as:
·Today I will equate material possessions with love.
·Today I will taunt others until they cry, then tell them they are too sensitive.
·Today I will make a new friend based solely on how he or she can further my career.
·Today I will respect my need to sabotage everyone else's success.

    This little book is hilarious! I bought it when it first came out several years ago, and loved it so much, I bought 2 more for a couple of my friends. I still keep it in my bedside table, so I can pull it out and laugh all over again! Never gets old! I highly recommend this book. You will not be able to put it down! Makes a great gift!

    Highly recommended as you may be surprised with how many traits you recognize!

    I found this book to be both entertaining and enlightening! Sarah Wells writes with a wry wit but underneath the humor is much to learn!

    hilarious

    I have owned this book for years and have probably purchased a dozen copies for friends. I laugh aloud every time I read it. The two women who wrote it are genius and they must have been laughing like crazy as they wrote this book. So so so funny!!!

    One truly kick butt book

    Truly one of the funniest books I have read in a long time. If you are bitter and cynical then this is one book you absolutely can not be without.
