I was going to buy a copy of The Power of Positive Thinking
and then I thought: What the hell good would that do?
- Ronnie Shakes

Bad things happen to everyone, and Eric Marcus's new book Pessimisms provides just the right words of irreverent inspiration to help you laugh at life and all its nasty surprises. Inspired by the author’s profoundly pessimistic late Grandma Ethel, Pessimisms offers wickedly witty observations, quotations, thoughts, and ruminations on people, relationships, politics, family, religion, the state of the world, and more.
