The Chicago Cubs tradition is one built on spectacular losing streaks and even more spectacular collapses. Yet despite all the losses and disappointments, an amazing thing happens every summer at the corner of Addison and Sheffield: millions of fans flock to Wrigley Field. And millions more fans across the country regularly tune in to watch Cubs games broadcast on television. Exactly why Cubs fans support their squad with such reckless abandon isn't entirely clear--these people represent a remarkable aberration of human psychology, epitomizing the spirit and experience of dedication to a desperate cause. And the whole time, they're oddly happy. The Cubs Fan's Guide to Happiness will reveal what makes Cubs fans tick and what keeps them happy. It will explain why it's not over until you're mathematically eliminated, why winning really isn't everything, and why it's perfectly acceptable to blame all your troubles on a scapegoat, which may or may not be an actual goat. To more fully illustrate the incredible power of these profound and practical principles for self-transformation, The Cubs Fan's Guide to Happiness will also provide educational sidebars, practical applications, and true words of wisdom from celebrity Cubs fans. But this book isn't just for Chicagoans. It's for anyone who wants to be happy in the face of adversity.
