Sod Calm and Get Angry: Resigned Advice for Hard Times

Author(s): Various

NZ non-fiction

During the current recession it seems our traditional stiff upper lip can only last so long before those other world-beating British skills come to the fore - quiet grumbling and resigned cynicism. "Sod Calm and Get Angry" is for anyone who has finally had enough of bankers and politicians and bosses telling them to keep sodding calm and to carry bloody on. "Sod Calm and Get Angry" is both a rallying call and essential tome of comforting wisdom for the depressed, enraged, disgruntled, disenfranchised and those of a naturally curmudgeonly disposition. On Politics: 'The word 'politics' is derived from the word 'poly', meaning 'many', and the word 'ticks', meaning 'blood sucking parasites" - Larry Hardiman. On Work: 'One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important' - Bertrand Russell. On Money: 'The easiest way for your children to learn about money is for you not to have any' - Katherine Whitehorn. On Hypocrisy: 'Hypocrite: the man who murdered both his parents...pleaded for mercy on the grounds that he was an orphan' - Abraham Lincoln. On War: 'You can't say civilisation don't advance...for in every war they kill you a new way' - Will Rogers. On Life: 'That's the secret to life...replace one worry with another' - Charles M Schulz.
