100 Ways to Beat the Blues
by Tanya Tucker
If You Had Five Minutes with the President:
5 Minutes, 55+ Personalities, 1 President
by Ron Reagan

For anyone who needs a bit of inspiration, a smile, or a friendly pat on the back, Tanya Tucker and ninety-nine friends offer this heartwarming collection of their personal recipes for beating the blues. Whether through family, friends, nature, music, or maybe even a little Jack Daniel's (as Nobel Prize winner William Faulkner recommended), the collected voices in this timeless book remind us of all the happiness and joy life has to offer. President George H. W. Bush yells at the television. Loretta Lynn makes herself a fried bologna sandwich. Sir Arthur C. Clarke explores the infinite universe of fractals. NASCAR's Geoff Bodine cleans the house. Seventy celebrities such as Kris Kristofferson, Jerry Orbach, and Garth Brooks and thirty ordinary folks such as a farmer, a private detective, a doctor, and a retired gospel radio-show host share what lifts their spirits and puts them back in the game of life. From George Jones's practical "Around the Farm Blues" to "Weird Al" Yankovic's funny "The Warm Weather Blues" to Cathie Pelletier's soulful "The Sunday Blues," 100 Ways to Beat the Blues is an inspiring guide to finding happiness no matter what the blues may bring. The more than 58 Hollywoodites push issues with aplomb even though they're given only a putative five minutes for lobbying a nonspecific sitting POTUS. Juliette Lewis decries the overmedicalization of children's development. Shoe man Kenneth Cole notes that 3.5 million Americans, 40% of whom are children, endure homelessness every year. Tom Arnold asks that "since there is no better word to describe bullshit than bullshit, please take that off the official forbidden words list." Minnie Driver checks in with a five-point check list ("trade, healthcare reform, education, the environment and the war in Iraq"). Morgan Fairchild concurs with the need to attack Afghanistan after 9/11 but "only wished that we could have truthfully said 'mission accomplished' before we tried to start the next [war]." The son of the 40th president tells of his work and board membership with the Creative Coalition, a nonprofit arts support organization that is the beneficiary of profits from the book. Hector Elizondo, Amanda Plummer, Matthew Modine, Mary Stuart Masterson, Chris Cooper, Janeane Garofalo and David Henry Hwang also offer their two cents in five minutes. Long on passion if short on time (and sometimes specifics), the stars come out fighting during their respective long rounds.
