Read an Excerpt
Do you ever wonder how you've, coped with it so farand how you'll ever get through the next five minutes, not to mention the next five years?
One thing is for sure, life happens. You wake up in the morning with a new, huge zit...walk into French class totally clueless that your shirt has a huge stain on it...and then bump into the guy you've been crushing on for a month, only to accidentally step on his sprained toe.
In short, you feel like a total loser. You want to scream, "Hey! Who is scripting my life? I demand a rewrite!"
Well.. just calm down. We're here for you.
Consider this book your new best friend, your personal traumatrainer, and your stay-cool coach all rolled into one.
Sure, sometimes life is spelled t-r-a-u-m-a, but you can use several key symbols in this, book to help you cope:
The trauma-o-meter can help you tell the difference between a brush-it-off blunder, and a change-your-name-and-enter-the-witness-protection-program fiasco. Our rating scale for every trauma in this book goes from 1 (no biggie) to 10 (find a paper bag that will fit nicely over your head). You can use the trauma-o-meter to rate your own traumas, or to flip quickly to the juiciest, moot embarrassing moments in this book!
Any section marked with these symbols will show you ways to dodge potential traumas, or
deal with them in a way that won't make you look like even more, of a loser after they've happened. If you need adviceand fastbe on the, lookout for these symbols.
Now that you've got the ground rules down, keep reading. The new smooth and in control you will be happy you did!
