Ehrenreich first encountered positive thinking in a meaningful way when she was diagnosed with breast cancer eight years ago. At a support group website, she expressed her feelings of anger at the disease. Commentors rebuked her and urged her to think positively, rather than negatively, if she wanted to recover from cancer. Thus began her journey to this book, which included an exploration of idea of the modern CEO and a visit to Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church.
It sounds quite fascinating, and I will probably read the book when it becomes available.
