WTF Just Happened? takes an irreverent and pragmatic look at the troubles that most people will experience at some point in life. Everyone has moments when the unanticipated just happens: you get dumped out of the blue, you get fired from the job you need, your sweet child turns into a grunting teenager overnight, and so on. When was your last what-the-funk-just-happened moment? We all have these moments and, unfortunately, few of us respond well. We say and do things that we regret the fact is we don t do ourselves any favors. This collection of cringe-worthy examples explains why this happens and what to do to avoid it happening to you. Each chapter is an opportunity to gain from someone else s pain!
Drawing on scientific research into human behavior and taking the perspective of a behavioral change coach the book offers readers insights into the reasons why people often behave irrationally and suggestions as to how to avoid such behavior themselves. Reading it won t just stop bad things happening but it will help prevent you reacting badly if they do. If you only buy one book to help you handle life s challenges, then make it this one.
