    A Grownup Guide to Effective Crankiness: The Crankatsuris Method by Steven Joseph

    Nobody likes the grumpy person in the room, the buzz killer at an intimate house party, or the cranky guy who keeps frowning through your entire presentation. But, there is no escape from the crankiness that sets on all of us no matter how hard you try, especially in this time of crisis.

    Steven Joseph is a first-generation American, son of a Holocaust Survivor, attorney, negotiator, speaker, author, fully cured overweight person,  five times Boston Marathon, and 16 times NYC Marathon runner. This humorist has spent 28 years as a partner with therapists. And most importantly, he is kind of a crankiness expert.

    In his book, A Grownup Guide to Effective Crankiness: The Crankatsuris Method, Steven uses good humor throughout to observe that we typically do not hesitate to pour out our CrankaTsuris (the tiniest, most dangerous dinosaur on the plane) all over. And when we pour it on our spouses, kids, parents, and siblings, there can be a CrankaTsuris retaliation.

    We’re all cranky at times, but we’ve got to find more effective ways to be cranky while still making the world a happier place. In this book, you’ll learn how to do just that. Order your copy of A Grownup Guide to Effective Crankiness: The Crankatsuris Method now.
