9780060529123: 101 Poems to Get You Through the Day (and Night)

This is an anthology designed to help you get through the stresses of modern life. For rapid and effective relief around the clock, 24-7, without side effects, try a poem -- whatever the time of the day (or night), you can be sure that some poet, past or present, has been there too.

To help you find the right poem at the right time, the organization of the book is like that of a book of hours. Starting with Getting Up, it then moves on to those other morning traumas: Stepping on the Scale and Looking into the Mirror.

As the day moves on there are sections to cover everything, from Office Politics to Off to School. And if by five p.m. your head is throbbing, dig into the poems in the Take 5 section and let the world recede. By the end of the day you may want to look for inspiration among the poems in Going Home, but if you are intent on veering from the straight and narrow, then turn to the Behaving Badly poems and you'll find you're in good company. Anyone who feels vaguely guilty about settling down in front of the TV instead of taking café society by storm should turn to the poems in the Not Tonight section.

Review:

Amazon.co.uk readers' reviews for '101 Poems To Save Your Life': 'I really enjoyed this book: beats all those "Feng Shui Your Cat" type anthologies and is definitely one I'd pass on to my friends because of its wit (and relevance) on the subjects of birth, marriage, death, and everything in between!I particularly liked one about "Going to Bed with a Cheese and Pickle Sandwich" -- who needs a man when you've got instant gratification waiting in the fridge?' 'With "101 Poems" now by my bedside table, I feel that I can conquer any problem that may arise in my life!! It is a "must have" for any person that needs that tiny bit of help to get past a difficult moment in a humourous and sensitive way, without having to leave the house.'
