I rather enjoyed this insightful and incisive analysis of the positive thinking movement; tears into the cancer support industry, corporate culture, and popular religion, all whilst taking into account social, cultural, and economic trends. I highly recommend it, especially for those (or for those one knows) who seem to be getting sucked into (suckered into, more likely) the 'success' genre.
