by Nathaniel Whitten and W.R. Morton

Hailed by Publishers Weekly, The Huffington Post, and Rolling Stone as the self-help book for people who don't read self-help, "Secrets of the SuperOptimist" offers an unprecedented, scientifically verified step-by-step guide to overcoming every “negative” issue you may face - including fear, anxiety, anger, depression, overeating, bad relationships, drug addiction, physical pain, and minor traffic violations.
This volume could become the self-help of choice for people who don't read self-help. This quirky, unique primer, categorized on its back cover as "Psychology/ Philosophy/ Great Religious Texts of the World/ Humor," provides more than 100 points of advice for achieving SuperOptimism, defined as "the mental discipline to reframe any situation into a favorable outcome." Centered around three central principles-believing in the preeminence of your own fortune, considering pain a kind of informative "sensation," and removing one's shoes whenever possible-specific "secrets" include: drink caffeine, "compare yourself downward," wear wool, "skip therapy," engage strangers and "tip everybody." The book also includes exercises and appendixes, as well as a handy, all-purpose slogan for 2007: "I can handle it." Whether or not one can, in fact, handle it, Morton and Whitten provide plenty of fresh perspective from way out in left field.
