Sick of the mindless pablum of “inspiration” offered by page-a-day devotionals? Tired of the relentless celebration of positive thinking? Perhaps it's time for something with a bit more bite to it. Daily Scoldings are daily doses of bitter truth that will wake anyone out of their narcissism, delusions of grandeur, and indulgent happy thoughts. Think of it as a mental dousing of cold water, first thing in the morning. It's the perfect gift for the crank, cynic, or curmudgeon in one's life.

About the author (2010)

Beryl Barclay was suffering from a bout of dyspepsia, when she took a sip of medicinal bitters. Suddenly, she experienced a flash of insight into the nature of reality. She penned this volume to share her “words of wisdom” and whip a bit of sense into her readers. Beryl lives in a drafty Victorian house, which she shares with her two cats.
