This book is called "Brightsided", by Barbara Ehrenreich.
It's funny how what used to be considered "being realistic" is now viewed as "pessimism" in the US. The US has been overtaken by the "positive thinking" cult, and it's nothing more than mental masturbation, leaving the less-fortunate wondering why they are such "losers". The positive-thinking cult leaves no room in the culture for normal or average people. No, not everyone is a winner and an orchestra can't be made up of just 1st violins. Life is tough and we all need to help each other out; not just blow each other off through "positive thinking".
"bwaaaahhh..waaahh.. wittle baby crying his eyes out. Must be a beta loser with a small dick. Evil society hurt his feelings. Get out of your mom's basement and get a job!"
Isn't that how Americans tend to react to this sort of thing?
I noticed this positive thinking crap maybe 20 years ago, but then the trend envelopes society and the agenda is complete. Then you kind of forget about it and take it for granted because there's nothing much to do for a conscious person except to emigrate. We Americans have so much mental baggage!
