Enough Is Enough: Weekly Meditations for Living Dysfunctionally by Karen Finley



Enough Is Enough book.

I'm sorry but Karen Finley is a big reason why I hate performance art. That's why I was so surprised when I picked up this book and laughed out loud in the middle of the store. It's witty, cynical, beautifully satirical. I couldn't believe this is the same woman who shouts inane trite poetry at her audience in that screechy voice. I too love "Enough is Enough," by Karen Finley. Which Woody Allen book?

According to performance artist/provocateur Karen Finley, plastering on the ol happy face when you want to choke the life out of somebody is unhealthy. Whichever comes first.

A humorous take on the self-help revolution provides daily meditations on living with all sorts of fetishes, obsessions, and nasty little dysfunctions. National ad/promo. Tour.

I have to give 2 thumbs up for this book of laughs. I think everyone grows up in a dysfunctional family to some degree or another whether we know it or not...and the most important thing is to be able to laugh about our faults. Laugh at ourselves...and,at times, laugh at others. This is my second copy of this book as I loaned out the first and never got it back, so I HAD to replace it. If you need a laugh, or want to share one, get a copy, or two...One for you, one to share. Enjoy! Shannon Enough Is Enough: Weekly Meditations for Living Dysfunctionally

DO give this to someone who grew up in a dysfunctional family
DO NOT give this to someone who is dysfunctional (trust me they WILL mistake it for approval).
Finley as always sharp and brutal, but that doesn't mean she can't be humorous about it, and this delivers all of the above.

If you find this book buy it. If you want it from Amazon, pay for the finding costs. It's that good.

This book and one other by Woody Allen are the two funniest books I have ever read. She has a true gift. I saw her in person after reading this book, and am now a huge fan.
So many "dysfunctions" I have and see are described in this book. It is a takeoff of the self-help styled books, but is more helpful because it rings so true.
Karen Finley is a wise woman.

I too love "Enough is Enough," by Karen Finley.
In your review you write that this book and one by Woody Allen are the two funniest books you've ever read.

Which Woody Allen book? I'd love to read it.
I've never read Woody. Just seen (and loved many of) his films. Embarrassing but true.

Thanks-- any help appreciated.
