Summary
You Are a Badass meets F*ck Feelings--in this fiercely smart wake-up call from larger-than-life TV personality and relationship expert Dr. V. Dr. V dismantles the damaging neo-folk wisdom of pop psychology and provides empowering strategies for true transformation. On WE tv, Bravo, and her popular Your Daily Dose of Dr. V. YouTube channel, Dr. Venus Nicolino takes a blowtorch to what she calls the useless "neo-folk wisdom of pop psychology," a.k.a. "Bad Advice." Dr. V. explains how ubiquitous sayings, such as "Follow Your Bliss" and "You Can't Love Anyone Until You Love Yourself", seem to offer deep insight but are actually misguided. In Bad Advice, Dr. V. pairs humor, hard science, and heart to offer a psychological course-correction like no other. Simultaneously irreverent and smart, Bad Advice traces an arc from our biology as animals to our shared history as a species to understand how these common misperceptions became cultural truths. Dr. V. explores a true murderer's row of pop-psych BS, including such renowned hits as: "You Get What You Get and You Don't Get Upset" "You Can't Love Anyone Until You Love Yourself" "Live Each Day Like It Was Your Last" "Nobody Can Make You Feel Bad Without Your Permission" Combining the brains and insight of a Ph.D. with the heart of an Italian matriarch--and a Philadelphia cab driver's facility with profanity--Dr. V. illuminates the origins of each piece of bad advice, deconstructs what makes it so compelling, and explains why it is misguided, replacing every aspect with grounded and field-tested strategies that truly work. Infused with humor and her trademark glamorous heart-sense, Bad Advice doesn't offer a one-size-fits-all answer to life's problems--it empowers readers to find their own
