"I cannot tell you how many books I hve read, conferences I hve gone to, and people I have talked with, yet there is information in your book that screams true to exactly what I am feeling and experiencing." (CM, Atlanta)

"I read your book and realised in a moment how the jigsaw fitted together. I was having trouble with panic and realised immediately upon reading your book that what I was afraid of was the sense of powerlessness that comes with ignoring the inner voice. I haven't come across anything quite so unswerving and firect. Panic attacks stopped. I wish I'd had a book like this years ago, but I'm certainly grateful to have it today. You're quite good at this! "(WC, Austrailia)

Recipients of a 5-Star Review from Readers Favorite, Patricia Zerman's book Twelve Guaranteed Ways To Stay Miserable, Or Not... is like a lifeline for the depressed, rejected and anxious. She has a delightful and humorous way of reaching people.

Walking through the Twelve Guaranteed Ways to Stay Miserable, Patricia offers provable tools to deal with fear, depression, anxiety, stress, anger, guilt or any number of emotions clouding lives. The whimsical manner and lighthearted illustrations show how to eliminate chaos and proves a way to experience independence and freedom. You will learn what being Selfish with a capital "S" is and undersand what happends when you abandon you! The book emphasizes the concept of Self-love and the necessity of learning to put you first. It pushes readers of any age to risk making new choices. In the final analysis, it helps strugging people find out the truth about themselves, and if they are willing, leads them to unimagined heights of personal and spiritual growth. It is a book that teaches you to be you! To quote Mark Twain, "A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval."


"Rocky, if people only believed they were valuable enough to face their problems, follow their intuition and speak up, I'd be out of a job."

Worry is an ideal way to stay immobilized in Misery. You get to feel paranoid, live in constant fear and experience life as a perpetual guessing game. Worrying keeps you removed from yourself, diverting discomfort feverishly picking things apart. This offers a false sense of control. In truth, worry simply misleads you into believing apprehension can be ditched by thinking things to death. Incessant nausea lingers from living in the past. Projecting into the future offers additional appeal. It's a dramatic mind trick guaranteed to draw attention to insecurities, doubts and fears.

Professional Reviews

Twelve Guaranteed Ways To Stay Miserable, Or Not...
Reviewed by Ann B. for Reader's Favorite: Patricia Zerman's book, Twelve Guaranteed Ways To Stay Miserable, Or Not... is like a lifeline for the depressed, rejected and anxious. Zerman has a delightful and humorous way of reaching people. Her style is unique and refreshing. Zerman continues her book by expounding on each "step" for leaving Misery behind. After each step is discussed she has a "Suggesting Starting Points".

Private detective Rutgar and his faithful dog, Rocky, are on a mission to find out why people like to live in Misery. "People continually ask Rutgar to get them out of mess instead of doing it themselves. He helps them out. But they never seem to learn. Until they help themselves, they will never truly resolve the problem." "Many people live in Misery; they may say they want to leave Misery but they rarely do."

I won't explain each of the rules in this review... read the book. I saw myself in several of these rules. I followed along with Rutgar and Rocky on their quest. Like them, I found Misery disgusting and not a place where I want to stay. Rutgar knew there was a better way to live. With the desire to help others Rutgar created his own list: Twelve Guaranteed Ways To Leave Misery. Again... Read the book for more information.

There is more I would love to tell you about, but then you wouldn't read the book. I love Zerman's approach It is unique to what most counselors would take. She is an encourager. She offers us the way to freedom.
