From Publishers Weekly
Markoe's spoof of self-help guides takes cliche-ridden advice and applies it in off-the-wall ways.

From Library Journal
Markoe (What The Dogs Have Taught Me), has absolutely no qualifications as a mental health expert, but that doesn't stop her from adding her own tome to the already oversaturated self-help market. She promises that her 33 "happiness hints," arranged like a day-by-day calendar, will help depressed readers become happier without leaving "the comfort and security of [their] own private hell." For Happiness Hint #1 ("Take the time to improve your knowledge of another period of history"), Markoe suggests an evening at a Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament Restaurant, complete with beverage wenches and manservant waiters. Happiness Hint #33 ("Extend a social invitation to someone you've always been afraid to approach") means a romantic date with Fabio. While funny in snippets, Markoe's book, read all at once, begins to wear thin like a TV sketch that has gone on too long. For larger humor collections.
