Ever wish you could read other people’s rejection letters to make you feel better about your own? Well thanks to writer Bill Shapiro, your demands will be satisfied upon reading his new book.

Within its pages, ‘Other People’s Rejection Letters’ includes university rejections, relationship killers and even one particularly sad letter from O Magazine rejecting a submitted story.

Read Shapiro’s book if you need a pat on the back because let’s face it: everyone’s been rejected at least a few times in life.
