Summary
Every day, Americans are bombarded with terrifying news about crime, the environment, politics, and the health consequences of the foods we've been enjoying for years. We're judged by social media users, pressured into maintaining a perfect home, and expected to base our self-worth on retweets, faves, likes, and followers. Our collective FOMO (fear of missing out), and the disparity between ideals and reality, is leading us to spend more and feel worse. With wit and wisdom, the author charts a path out of the quagmire that keeps us frightened and ashamed
