Publisher's Description

A Self-Help Spoof for the Life Impaired

Right here in this book store, you can find hundreds of them -- self-help books. They tell you how to improve your finances, lose weight, age gracefully, and influence people. But even after reading all those books, you're still a mess. It can only mean one thing: maybe life's just not that into you.

Once you open you mind to this possibility, you can quit beating yourself up. It's all about attitude. It's about the find art of whining. It's about losing your shirt, but keeping your dignity. It's about being dull and boring, but making it work for you. It's about losing friends and influencing nobody. It's about just saying no to dieting because, well, let's be honest, carbs just taste good.

A hilarious, good-natured spoof on more that fifty self-help books, this book will leave you feeling better about who you are and laughing your way to becoming the person God created you to be.

"Sharp, funny, satirical, and relevant. If there's such a thing as a winning book for 'losers,' this is it."
-- Doug Gamble, former writer for President Ronald Reagan and George Bush, now writes for various politicians and corporate executives

"These are very funny writers. Martha wrote for Bob Hope; Brad wrote for Jay Leno. No, if we could only get them to write for Carrot Top."
-- Jimmy Brogan, comedian, writer for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

"Martha and her witty pen amazed me even when we worked side by side those many years turning out wisecracks for Bob Hope."
-- Gene Perret, four-time Emmy award-winning writer for Bob Hope, the Carol Burnett Show, and numerous others

"I have fond memories of working with Martha on the Bob Hope Show specials in the 80s and 90s. she's one of a kind!"

Well, all I can say is don’t read this on the bus on your way to work because people will think you’re nuts when you begin guffawing and holding your sides. Are you sick and tired of self-help books which earn a lot of money for the author and do very little for you? Have you noticed the ludicrousness of life, including yourself? Do you find that in spite of all your imperfections (which everyone and their brother are happy to point out to you) you have fun? Or, on the other hand, are none of these how you feel but you’d like them to be? Then Maybe Life’s Just Not That Into You is definitely for you.
Name it, it’s in here – farce, slap-stick, drollery, jocosity, comedy, ridiculousness, wittiness, zaniness. Maybe Life’s Just Not That Into You combines humor, cheerfulness, color, a biting brilliance, and a lot of laughter-engendered wisdom. And it is all drawn from self-help books, providing a festival of burlesque. Here is a sample from “10 Affirmations for the Procrastinator”: (1) Just do it! Whenever; (5) I never put off until tomorrow what I can do four weeks from now; I no longer procrastinate on voting; (8) First thing in the morning, I’m going to mail in that absentee ballot to elect Gore/Lieberman (p. 96).
Okay, I have to admit it, this is a secular book. No Scripture in here. But, once in a while something sneaks in that sounds familiar. Besides being a noted media comedy writer, Martha Bolton writes for Focus on the Family’s Brio magazine. Brad Dickson writes for Jay Leno, and other media comedy areas, as well as the Jewish World Review Web site.
If we could give stars to the books we review I’d give Maybe Life’s Just Not That Into You *****+. Remember Proverbs 17.22, “A joyful heart is good medicine,” and buy this book. – Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com
