9781492324539: Get Real, Dr. Phil: Discrediting Television's Most Overrated Psychologist

"Get Real, Dr. Phil: Discrediting Television's Most Overrated Psychologist" is a satirical criticism of Dr. Phil McGraw and his pedestrian advice. I was kidnapped by terrorists, tied to a chair and forced to watch Dr. Phil's daytime TV program for more than three weeks before US commandos rescued me. Over the course of those three torturous weeks, I decided it was time someone put Dr. Phil in his place. While this book has an extensive amount of humor in it, including some R-rated content, I have attempted to offer actual insight and possible cures for problems that plague our society (such as EMDR therapy). Dr. Phil does not do this because he is just an entertainer. He may have a degree in psychology, but entertainment is his specialty. This book does what no one else has attempted to do: Force Dr. Phil into an early retirement by ridiculing and thoroughly discrediting television's most loved and hated psychologist.

About the Author:

My latest book, "Get Real, Dr. Phil: Discrediting Television's Most Overrated Psychologist" is a satirical criticism of Dr. Phil McGraw and his pedestrian advice. I was kidnapped by terrorists, tied to a chair and forced to watch Dr. Phil's daytime TV program for more than three weeks before US commandos rescued me. Over the course of those three endless weeks, I decided that it was time someone put Dr. Phil and his simpleton recommendations in his place. While "Get Real, Dr. Phil: Discrediting Television's Most Overrated Psychologist" has an extensive amount of humor in it, including some R-rated content, I have attempted to offer actual insight and possible cures for some problems that plague our society. If Dr. Phil knew what he was doing, he would offer the same methods. But, alas, he doesn't even know of the possible cures I discuss. Combined with a short exposť of the McGraw family and its shady dealings at the end of the book, perhaps we can finally put Dr. Phil out to pasture for good. I still find my first book, "Women May Be From Venus, But Men Are Really From Uranus," funny. Sure, it's just one joke after another while ridiculing John Gray's advice, but who doesn't need to laugh now and then? However, "Jesus Is A Republican" was a poor choice for publication, based on misguided advice from politically active Tea Party friends. The political eBooks I have edited are hilarious though. So who is Katherine Black? Katherine Black is a pen name. When I write under it, I see the world through the eyes of the character I have created, which is a woman in her late 50s who has a great deal of wisdom and objective advice to offer. The advice is usually steeped in humor, but I write what works best for that character. This also allows me to write from a perspective I would not normally understand, though the experiences I write about have happened to me or friends of mine and are real...most of the time. When I'm setting up a joke or one-liner, often the event will have some embellishment. Those who have read my writing (including edited works) compare it as a mix of Al Franken and Bill Maher, but I believe I have my own uniqueness. Writing from the perspective of a pen name is no different from acting: An actor becomes his or her character in front of the camera, and when the camera isn't on, that person resorts to being who he or she has always been. When I sit down at my keyboard and computer screen, I become Katherine Black.
