BY Beth Lisick

Review

"Her accounts of everything...are not only hilarious but enlightening. Finding useful tips amidst the bunk, she distills the best from thousands of pages of self-help books. Readers will be inspired: If a woman in a banana suit can clean her closet and pay off her credit card debt, surely you can, too." -- -- People

"Small moments of improvisation, coincidence and dumb luck make "Helping Me Help Myself" funny from the belly button instead of the mouth corners...Lisick has created a hilarious, knowing tale of a year of willing ridiculousness." -- --San Francisco Chronicle

"A delightful, Plimptonesque exercise in immersive journalism...sharp, irreverent and endearingly screwed-up." -- Kirkus Reviews

"A witty, disarmingly earnest account of the year [Lisick] spent test-driving renowned self-help franchises." -- Entertainment Weekly

"Lisick has created a hilarious, knowing tale of a year of willing ridiculousness." -- San Francisco Chronicle

"sweetly neurotic, funny and occasionally insightful." -- Los Angeles Times

"wildly funny" and "a cross between David Sedaris and Susan Orlean." -- Seattle Times

not only hilarious but enlightening... Readers will be inspired: If a woman in a banana suit can clean her closet and pay off her credit card debt, surely you can, too." -- People





Product Description

Whether she has been too cynical to embrace self-help or too modest to think she should waste time trying to improve herself, Beth Lisick has never given much thought to self-help until now. Taking a stranger in a strange land approach, Lisick sets out to explore self-help culture - "with an unflagging sense of purpose, a wicked sense of humour, and a soul open to humiliation". She observes that, in this day and age, it's not enough just to feel okay. It seems that everyone has the easy answer to getting rich, looking gorgeous, and feeling absolutely fantastic and reports on her sometimes enlightening, sometimes painful, often hilarious experiences throughout her year-long journey.
