The Recommend:

If you’re sick of being commanded to “have a Merry Christmas” or more generally “have a good day” you’ll love Barbara Ehrenreich’s book, Bright-Sided:  How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking has Undermined America.

The case for the negative impact of positive thinking has never been made more clearly.
