KIRKUS REVIEW

Here, rescued from out-of-print limbo in an apparent attempt to capitalize on the success of Keen's bestselling A Fire in the Belly, comes a 1980 Keen work, slightly revised and given a new introduction--and a new name, so much more 90's-style than the original: What to Do When You're Bored and Blue. Well, as we pointed out 12 years ago, one thing you should not do is to read this book, which is, as we said then, full of ""bubble-headed mystical insights"" in which Keen ""takes boredom as a synonym for practically every lifestyle malady, from simply monotony to full-fledged depression,"" and recommends, among other tactics, that you ""replace the TV set with your own imagination: 'On my channel 1 this morning, Sophia Loren and I are shipwrecked....' Flotsam.
