"Approval Junkie: Adventures in Caring Too Much"
by Faith Salie
The way Faith sees it we all have a bit of Approval Junkie in us. Which really makes a lot of sense when you think about it. Why else would people have to have these lavish houses with perfect yards, cars that have all the latest gadgets, or sending our kids to school wearing only the biggest name brand clothing? It's because deep down we all want to feel accepted and maybe even liked.
This book is a story of how Faith's desire for approval led her through many challenges but she does it with a humor that will leave you laughing throughout.
Don't worry, Faith isn't going to ramble on and on about ways that you can change the way you are, she more or less lets you see how to embrace it.

With chapter titles like "Howler Monkey", "Face for Radio", "What I wore to my divorce", and "Wait, Wait ...Don't tell me about Batman's nipples", how can this not be hilarious.
With a bit of Approval Junkie scattered throughout my life, ok so maybe a lot, I really related with Faith. Although I did have some difficulties understanding what she was talking about with some of her vocabulary which really made me think that I should have gone to college, LOL.
I just can't say it enough how funny she is. Although this was not a self-help book so much as a good humor read it was worth every last second. Thanks for the fun, Faith : )
