    Summary:

    In our current state of economic misery and political distrust, surely there is a limit to just how much keeping calm and carrying on one might be expected to undertake. You may very well find that getting frustrated and enraged might be the only way to get things changed around here.To help you achieve a new state of mild motivation, Screw Calm and Get Angry brings together several centuries of embattled and embittered epithets. It would seem that across the world and across the centuries, there is plenty of evidence to suggest you're not alone in bemoaning the way the odds are stacked: * On Politics: "The word 'politics' is derived from the word 'poly,' meaning 'many,' and the word 'ticks,' meaning 'blood sucking parasites.'" — Larry Hardiman * On Work: "By working faithfully eight hours a day, you may eventually get to be a boss and work 12 hours a day." — Robert Frost * On Money: "The easiest way for your children to learn about money is for you not to have any." — Katherine Whitehorn * On Business: "Nothing is illegal if a hundred businessmen decide to do it, and that's true anywhere in the world." — Andrew Young * On War: "You can't say civilization don't advance...for in every war they kill you a new way." — Will Rogers * On Life: "If you wake up and you're not in pain, you know you're dead." — Russian proverb A parody of the famed Keep Calm and Carry On British motivational poster, and featuring the same successful format as our bestselling Keep Calm and Carry On book, Screw Calm and Get Angry is destined to be the motivational mantra for the realists of the world!
