    America is a barren landscape of smoldering ashes, devoid of life except for those people still struggling to scratch out some type of existence. Amidst this destruction, a father and his young son walk, always toward the coast, but with no real understanding that circumstances will improve once they arrive. Still, they persevere, and their relationship comes to represent goodness in a world of utter devastation.

    The author seems to exagerate all the time the darkness of every moment. Its very presumptuous.

    In this fascinating new book which he narrates himself, Oliver Burkeman argues that "positive thinking" and relentless optimism aren't the solution to the happiness dilemma, but part of the problem. And that there is, in fact, an alternative path to contentment and success that involves embracing the things we spend our lives trying to avoid - uncertainty, insecurity, pessimism, and failure. Thought-provoking, counterintuitive, and ultimately uplifting, The Antidote is a celebration of the power of negative thinking.

    Story

    Before this, I have read some positive-thinking books from Anthony Robbins, Robin Sharma and Robert Kiyosaki. At first, it seemed like they were going to change my life, like if they showed me the path to reach eternal happiness and joy. But it wasn't so easy. Things sometimes can go wrong, sh*t happens. This book show you how to accept life as it is, without necessarily rejecting to your goals or dreams if you are willing to have them. I won't say that possitive-thinking books are totally uneuseful, but with The Antidote you learn that the way they try to teach you how to live or confront issues is not the best approach.
