Mommy and Daddy Issues

Cutting Loose
An Adult Guide to Coming to Terms With Your Parents
Halpern

Back in the day, transactional analysis was all the rage. I even had a college professor that spoke the “I’m okay, you’re okay” speak all the time. It was awful.

A Diet for Women

Everywoman’s Diet Handbook
Tiffany
1980

Aside from questionable nutritional value, they are probably the most boring menus around. I get the feeling that the next level of dieting for these authors is to simply sniff the food and call it a meal.
