- Popular TV and radio personality Wallace Chapman is on a mission. A mission to chill us all out. He's thought
a lot about the syndrome of modern life and thinks he has a few answers. Ranging
over subjects such as careers, technology, health, communication, food, and
relationships, and employing a captivating mix of pop psychology, science,
philosophy and humour, Chapman distils the many mixed messages we each receive
on a daily basis into a self-help book that's not actually a self-help book...
