Self-help gives bad advice and reinforces everything bad in society, Part 467 P.S. and can help too.

Antithesis to the self improvement world.

Good analysis smart writing.

She criticizes some things but just bc you can criticize doesn’t mean some of it doesn’t work.

And Brinkmann does offer some advice that seems immediately worth taking. Go for a walk in the woods, he says, and think about the vastness of the cosmos. Go to a museum and look at art, secure in the knowledge that it will not improve you in any measurable way. Things don’t need to be of concrete use in order to have value. Put away your self-help guides, and read a novel instead. Don’t mind if I do. ♦
