Don't blame me! Or do. In this soon-to-be-bestseller, Dr. Neil Farber takes a new look at the world's oldest game. With humor and ...wit, The Blame Game will teach you the rules, techniques, and advanced strategies of this ancient past time. One of the first things you'll learn is how to pick a Target of Blame (TOB)-- ''the scapegoat, the stooge, the donkey'' -- as Farber writes. Wars, wildfires, terrorism, and talk shows are all to blame ... and somebody's to blame for all of those. In fact, a skilled player could follow the Chain of Blame (COB) all the way back to the cavemen. And Farber does. An experienced player can blame anything or anyone, at any time. Students not succeeding in school? Blame the teachers. Or the parents. Or the teachers' parents, or the pencils. Bad day at the office? Blame the boss. Of course, blame the employees if you are the boss. On a deeper level, The Blame Game is self-empowering; providing you with the inspiration, the knowledge, and the tools that you need to accept responsibility and gain control of your life. Farber shows you how to improve your health, well-being, relationships and careers by reaching beyond blame. So pick up the book and put down the game. read more
