If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You - Kelly Cutrone, Meredith Bryan I actually read this book in 2 sittings.

I picked it up at the beginning of September, read just slightly less than half I believe, thought it was stupid and entitled (oh my life has been so hard, but I've basically been given every opportunity and gone through every obstacle) Ugh. And the section on her religion really did me in. I can't stand hearing about someone's new -agey religion and how much it changes and affects their daily lives (heck I don't want to hear about established religion either, unless its how the MC is standing up to injustice or trying to find the truth underneath all the facade).

So I put the book down and believe it or not managed to finish Anna Karenina in its entirety before feeling the guilt that perhaps I should read the rest of this one (it is for an online bookclub after all). So tonight I picked it back up and read it in one sitting. Probably the most useful advice was in the chapter named for the book itself, which dealt with the work environment, how to be respectful, make yourself stand out and what not to do to avoid getting fired.

Definitely not a book I would recommend to anyone, unless you happened to be a big fan of this woman or something (I had never heard of her) but at least it was a quick read, relatively speaking.
