This is one of those posts I intended to write a couple of weeks ago. Then the Supreme Court decision happened. Then my wife got sick. Then I started traveling. Then we had a holiday. So finally, at long last, I get to tell you about my latest book excursion.
Monica Crowley has a new book out called What the Bleep Just Happened?: The Happy Warrior’s Guide to Great American Comebacks. You guys know Monica, I’m sure. She’s the happy warrior often on Fox. I adore her and was delighted to get a review copy of her book.
A few weeks ago, I had her on my radio show in Atlanta to talk about the book. Before I get to that, let me just tell you that I don’t write about books unless I’ve read them. Sometimes it takes a while for me to write them up because I want to get through them.
Monica’s latest reflects her cheerful disposition in less than cheerful times. She and I are both big on the idea of being happy warriors. In this endeavor, Monica writes about how we got to where we are now and, unlike a lot of politically themed books these days, actually offers up how to get beyond where we are too. Throughout the book, Monica maintains a refreshing cheerfulness that so many other books haven’t had when its come to covering our current political predicament. It’s refreshing, honest, and pretty funny at times.
