|In tomorrow’s Servant of Pod… By The Book’s Jolenta Greenberg and Kristen Meinzer are on the show this week. The hook, of course, is that it’s the New Year, which typically brings with it New Years’ resolutions, which is something neither I nor the By The Book duo put much stock in.
In any case, I just figured it was a good time to highlight By The Book, which is a show I really enjoy. If you’re unfamiliar with the show, every episode sees Greenberg and Meinzer pick a different book from the self-help section and live by its tenets for two weeks, after which they evaluate just how useful these books are anyway. As you would probably expect, only some are actually useful, most not so much. Either way, I really enjoyed talking to Greenberg and Meinzer about self-help books, who tends to write them, and what kinds of books in this genre are actually helpful.
