Screw Calm and Get Angry

Hate when people tell you "Just relax!"? Have no patience to meditate? Politics and the economy make you want to scream (or worse)? Forget Stay Calm and Carry On. You need Screw Calm and Get Angry.

Described as "the motivational mantra for the realists of the world," Screw Calm and Get Angry is filled with pithy epithets, such as this little political gem:

"Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule—and both commonly succeed, and are right." -- H. L. Mencken

Am looking forward to reading the rest. That is, as soon as I calm down and go buy the book.

You mean download-Book Stores are sooooo last year!

I hate when people tell me to smile-like that is going to get me to smile! If you want one of my mega watt smiles (that could light the NorthEast for days)you got to ean it-try a really bad pun!

I must be in the minority. I bought the bookmark and put it at my desk. Anger just zaps me of energy.

At any rate I bet both are awesome reads! And I STILL love bookstores! There's something special about being able to touch the book and check out the art work on the cover!

Of course regarding anger....perhaps I need to embrace my inner B*just a little more!

@Anonymous, I love book stores!

@czechgurl4u, Don't change. You will probably live much longer than I will. :-)
