Amy Alkon presents Unf*ckology, a "science-help" book that knocks the self-help genre on its unscientific ass. You can finally stop fear from being your boss and put an end to your lifelong social suckage. Have you spent your life shrinking from opportunities you were dying to seize but feel "that's just who I am"? Well, screw that! You actually can change, and it doesn't take exceptional intelligence or a therapist who's looking forward to finally buying Aruba after decades of listening to you yammer on.

Since I'm a little older 60+, I felt the swearing was a little over done. I understand using it for emphasis but I could have done with a little less, especially the F-bomb.

She does have some great points and a LOT of it was very solid advice.
