SELECTED BY THE NEW YORKER AS ONE OF ITS TOP NON-FICTION PICKS OF 2011
"A triumph of what might be called conversational philosophy... The world is better for these humane and hilarious essays."  - The New Yorker  
"Heti and Glouberman's book has an intimacy, clear-headedness, and humor that our society needs right now. It should be required reading for Congress." - The Los Angeles Review of Books
 

Sheila Heti transcribed and edited these 72 essays, which were spoken by her friend Misha Glouberman, who at the time was working as a conference facilitator, neighbourhood advocate, and charades instructor. The book came about when Heti decided that the world should have a book of "everything Misha knows." The subjects include how to set up chairs for events, impostor syndrome, making friends in a new city, monogamy, quitting smoking, and much more.
