Barbara Ehrenreich talked with Rick Kogan about her book Bright-Sided: How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America (Metropolitan Books, 2009). In her book the former New York Times columnist sets out to debunk the whole notion that positive thinking has a positive effect on actions and outcomes. She has found positive thinking to be pervasive and criticized it as delusional and sometimes cruel. She responded to questions from members of the audience.

This was a 1 p.m. ET program from the Chicago Tribune Printers Row Lit Fest, held in Digitally Lit Room II. close
