Oh Hell No: And Other Ways to Set Some Damn Boundaries comes out at time when I am beginning to fully understand the power of setting a good boundary. Or at least attempting to! Therapy for the win.
No. Nope. No, thank you. Oh hell no! There's a time for yes—and there's a time for no. This collection of art and essays is a much-needed reminder to say no to anything that might waste our precious energy. We are reclaiming our time with the help of these sassy illustrated sayings and astute insights—and we've never felt more powerful. Featuring passionate prose from feminist scholar Sara Ahmed and actionable advice from author and journalist Dani Katz—not to mention a translucent flame pattern spot-varnished onto the front cover—Oh Hell No! is the ultimate naysayer's manifesto. It's a timely celebration of the joy of saying "no." This two-letter word is one to live by.
• Activists, contrarians, introverts, and feminists
• Anyone who is sick of the constant BS dominating the news cycle
• People looking for a cheeky gift for that friend who needs a little help saying NO to things
If I gift this book to everyone on my holiday list, does it count as setting a boundary?
