Anybody Can Be Cool - But Awesome Takes Practice


I found this image on the interwebs and I really hoped it was fake.  Unfortunately, it isn't. sells it.  I hoped this was just a funny Photoshop from or something but it isn't.  This makes me lose faith in humanity just a little bit more. Seriously:

Does the author have any testimonials?  Does she have any cases she can cite where a dork became the coolest person in the school?  Probably not.  If you need this book, you should just switch schools and start over.  If you are that desperate, you are already beyond repair.

I wonder what Lorraine Peterson's childhood was like.  I bet she was the kid that nobody liked and had to sit by herself every day at lunch.  Seriously, what motivates someone to write a book like this?  If you are a self proclaimed expert on cool, then you're not.  Calling yourself an expert does not make you an expert (with the exception of airline travel "experts").

I wonder if she is still alive.  I would love to know her credentials
