Little Victories: Perfect Rules for Imperfect Living

The Wall Street Journal’s popular columnist Jason Gay delivers a hilarious and heartfelt guide to modern living. Little Victories is a life guide for people who hate life guides. Whether the subject is rules for raising the perfect child without infuriating all of your friends, rules for how to be cool (related: Why do you want to be cool?) or rules of thumb to tell the difference between real depression and just eating five cupcakes in a row, Gay’s essays—whimsical, practical, and occasionally poignant—will make you laugh, and then think, “You know, he’s kind of right.”
