A short, funny book about Irby's experiment with 70 mini-resolutions that some went well and a whole lot that didn't. In 2016, Irby decided to join a "woo-woo challenge" (her words) that asked the participant to find 100 mini-intentions or changes they wanted to do in that year. Irby got to 70 and even that was trying too hard. Some resolutions had a paragraph explaining what happened, most got the Twitter 280 character style rundown. I really like Irby's voice and style, so I enjoyed reading this by the side of the pool.
