Derren Brown’s New Book ‘Happy’ Slams Self-Help Industry: ‘The Universe Doesn’t Give A F**k’
Illusionist is happy, but he’s not happy with self-help books.........
In his book Brown shares his theory on how to be happy, and launches a scathing attack on most of the self-help industry. He calls its logic “damaging” and compares its writers to psychics and charlatans whose message, that you can “magically get what you want”, is a promise that will always disappoint.
I must admit I've wondered about this stuff myself as there are so many contradictory approaches that how on earth do you know which one is 'right' for you, if any? Some could make you worse! My brother's read a ton of them and I wouldn't say he's any better off for it! At most I think they may give you a few things to think about but that doesn't necessarily mean it'll be of benefit.
