    I just finished this after a friend read it an thought of me. It is a really funny book, but I think the well-adjusted might assume it is hyperbole. With the exception of a couple sections, this book more or less encapsulates my current world view/emotional state with only the slightest amount of over-exaggeration. The entire process of reading this book was me reading a passage, feeling like it was a very accurate description of my reactions, thoughts and decisions in a situation and then realize with faint horror/mild embarrassment that the whole book is, in fact, written as gentle mockery meant to prod people out of stubbornly making themselves miserable. In that effort, it largely succeeds, although naturally the utility of the book will largely depend on how much you identify with the caricatures within. I would really like to say I closed the book with a hearty laugh, and went roaring out the door with a lightness in my heart and merriment in my mind. I did not do that. But it really gave me a lot to think about. I think I had never before realized how completely I let anxiety and a stubborn refusal to be happy take over my entire life.I recommend this book if:a) You make yourself miserable and are ready to take a little friendly prodding about it.b) you want to understand how your anxious friends work. People really do exist this way and it's a hard thing to break out of.c) You need a laugh. It's genuinely amusing, especially if you like mocking anxious people.

    A pretty funny book! It pointed out so many things we do to make ourselves miserable without even thinking about it. It's an insightful and humorous book that makes puts some things of one's life into perspective.

    You are likely to enjoy this book if you regularly make yourself miserable and appreciate self-depreciating humor. Overall, the book is insightful insofar as it identifies some thought patterns associated with anxiety and poor self-esteem.

    On of my friend gave me this book in a used book library and it is the best gift i have received in a long time. If it is your kind of humor you will love this book. The auteur gives advice to make your own life miserable and while reading you will keep telling yourself ''this is ridiculous, who would do such things, ever?'' and then you get to a point in the book and go ''Oh, I do this''. That is the moment the book gets hilarious when it makes you realize some of the things you do that are completely stupid and serve no other purpose than make your life harder.

    Mondom, mint egy átlagos mazochista olvasó. Sajnos, nem volt hasznos ez a könyv, mivel épp a forditott effektust hozta.Ez rövid volt. Jó kis biznisz-antipszichológia, amely (ironikus, mi?) nem is annyira vicces, ha körülnézünk.

    I read the 1996 21st Anniversary edition. So funny, and very very useful.

    This has some funny moments but is pretty pathetic. Sarcasm is a double-edged sword.
