After reading The Happiness Project in February, we thought we would explore the other end of the spectrum with Bright Sided: How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking is Undermining America by Barbara Eherenreich. She really is not grumpy, but she has an interesting take on the whole movement of "The Secret" and being only cheerful and upbeat. She even proposes that this, on a national level, brought us to an irrational optimism which might have even been a root cause of the financial crisis. Should be a very interesting book and discussion.
When: Monday, 07.March at 18:30.
Here is the line up for the next 2 months:
April: Gilead by Marilynne Robinson
May: We pick our books for the next season!
