In this highly original and hugely entertaining account, Barbara Ehrenreich confronts the cult of positive thinking in America. She examines the impact of positive thinking on religion, medicine, academia and the business community, and exposes the psychological effects of a world which tells us to 'put on a happy face'. From the pink ribbons and platitudes that surround breast cancer sufferers to the blind optimism that led to the recent economic disaster, Ehrenreich pokes holes in conventional wisdom and faux science, and ends with a rallying cry for clarity and courage.
'It's a provocative dismantling of the Positive Thinking Industry, exposing it for what it is - a complete fraud. It'll prevent me slapping any relentlessly cheerful castaways who tell me to 'turn that frown upside down'.' --'My desert islands books' chosen by Rosie Garland. MetroL'autore:
