Made it through the first three chapters of Elaine Aron’s The Undervalued Self before I needed a nap. I received a free copy of this book as part of the LibraryThing Early Reviewer program. So far, the first chapter was full of lame pseudo-science and faux evolutionary theory. The second (on six self-protections) and third (on childhood & adult traumas) chapters were better, but I’m not seeing much difference between “The Undervalued Self” and traditional analyses of “low self esteem”.
After nap I cheated and watched a bit of baseball. C.C. Sabathia was on the verge of a no-hitter in the Yankees/Rays game. But the Rays finally got a hit off of him in the eighth inning.
Time for some popcorn and Scarpetta.
BTW, my headache from this morning is still with me, despite Tylenol this morning and ibuprophen later. Doesn’t seem to be a migraine (which would prevent me from reading anything), just an annoying headache. My guess is it’s a “joys of Spring” headache . . .
