Irreverent Guides to Self Help, Modern Life's Dilemmas, and Getting the Pretty Back

Everybody needs a little help sometimes, a little encouragement,  a little shared wisdom, are we right?  Well, if you agree, you might already have done a subject search for Self Help or Self Esteem books, and you might already be well on your way to getting the help you need.  But some people are not as comfortable reading books classified as self help. These are books for those people - a little irreverent, injecting a little levity in the situation. These are probably not as likely to deal with your problems as traditional self help books - but at least they should brighten your day!
