Just when it seemed like Google had an answer for every possible question, Andrea Lavinthal and Jessica Rozler have made us painfully aware of all the questions even Google can’t answer, let alone your friends (although maybe a full time therapist could help, but who really has the time – or money – for that anyway?).
For the cost of about 10 minutes with a shrink, though, you can find the answers to your most pressing questions in Lavinthal and Rozler’s new book, Your So-Called Life. Ok, so maybe they’re not the most pressing questions you have (well, if you have a somewhat fulfilling and challenging life anyway)… But, aren’t you dying to know whether or not it’s weird to talk to your mom every few hours (even though you’re 30)? Or if you should tell your BFF that her husband-to-be makes Spencer Pratt look like husband of the year? Or if it’s okay to “friend” your co-workers or boss on Facebook? Yeah, we were wondering too! And, thankfully, Your So-Called Life has them all and more. (Answers: maybe, no, yes with appropriate privacy controls.)

Unsure whether or not downing a pint of Ben & Jerry’s after flipping through 1,500 photos of your friend’s baby is the best way to deal with the anxiety of being single in your 30s? Lavinthal and Rozler do more than just tell you to put down the ice cream. (But, really: put down the ice cream.) They break things down for you with expert advice designed to equip you with healthy coping mechanisms to replace the unhealthy ones. And while none of these answers are likely to curb global warming, they can certainly ward off some stress-induced hot flashes of your own and, let’s be honest here, preventing pit-stains is important too.
Get all your questions answered. Order this book. Trust us: at the very least you’ll have lots of good laughs!
