Publisher's Summary

A hilarious and heartwarming rampage through the world of self-care

Marianne Power was a self-help junkie. For years she lined her bookshelves with dog-eared copies of definitive guide after definitive guide on how to live your best life. Yet one day she woke up to find that the life she dreamed of and the life she was living were not miles but continents apart. So she set out to make a change. Or, actually, to make every change.

Marianne decided to finally find out if her elusive perfect life - the one without debt, anxiety, hangovers, or Netflix marathons, the one where she healthily bounced around town with perfect teeth to meet the cashmere-sweater-wearing man of her dreams - lay in the pages of those books. So for a year she vowed to test a book a month, following its advice to the letter, taking the surest road she knew to a perfect Marianne.

As her year-long plan turned into a demented roller coaster where everything she knew was turned upside down, she found herself confronted with a different question: Self-help can change your life, but is it for the better?

Hilarious??

I am only writing this review to warn only readers that this book is absolutely far from hilarious.
The first few chapters are funny-ish I guess.

But then it gets right depressing when the author goes down a path of self pitying and crying over her believed failures. And honestly i got fastly fed up hearing about how fat she was and how no man likes her. I just can’t believe this woman is in her late 30s.
We all have problems but somehow we don’t have enough money to dwell on ourselves for a full year and go chanting with other people and keep saying “oh but I’m so fat and poor!”

And oh my god she is such a terrible person to her friends

So to sum up I thought this was going to be a funny book. It just was sad, depressing and I just wanted to shake up the author who obviously has anxiety issues and need mental help
