Grappling with her lifelong phobia of anything slick, cheesy, or remotely claiming to provide self-empowerment, Beth Lisick wakes up one day able to admit to herself that she's grown tired of embracing the same old set of nagging problems year after year. She has no savings account; her house feels unorganized and chaotic; she and her husband never hang out together; the last time she exercised regularly was high school. So she confronts her fears head-on: she consults the multimillion-dollar-earning self-help pros and national experts, not only reading their bestselling books but also attending their seminars and classes. Throughout this yearlong experiment, Beth tries extremely hard to maintain her wry sense of humor and easygoing nature, even as she starts to fall prey to some of the experts' ideas, ideas she thought she'd spent her whole life rejecting. Beth doesn't think of herself as the typical self-help victim--but is she?--From publisher description.
