    "How to Make Yourself Miserable" by Dan Greenburg and Marcia Jacobs (1966)

    Dan Greenburg is a humorous satirist.

    Summarizer, powered by Brave AI, describes the book this way:
    Originally Posted by Summarizer

    1 The book is a funny and perceptive self-satire that makes us laugh out loud and realize the myriad of ways in which we undermine ourselves. The book suggests that we should dump behaviors that punish people for liking us. Instead, we should compare ourselves to ourselves and appreciate the progress we have made.

    2 We should take a closer look at the areas where we aren't improving as much as we'd like and try to figure out why. Then, we should make a plan for how we can improve on those areas of our life.

    First and second printings of this humorous, insightful vintage book are found listed on resale websites (such as abe books, amazon, ebay, etsy, thriftbooks).
