A Whack on the Side of the Head

 A few days ago, I bought a present for myself. It was a book called, “A Whack on the Side of the Head.” by Roger von Oech.
I was proud of my purchase - what an irresistible title!
The book was able to deliver what its title promised....
I have read many books on psychology, and they tend to deal with (more or less) the same principles of human behavior. But this book was a first for me. It transformed my thinking, in the same way that your view of the world is transformed when you get flipped upside-down.
This advice, for example:
"Want to feel rich? Start giving your money away to others."

Sometimes it's healthy and useful to get a "whack" on your head.
