Politics & Prose at Busboys and Poets 14th & V welcomes Faith Salie to present the new book “Approval Junkie: Adventures in Caring Too Much.”

As a former Rhodes Scholar, an Emmy-winning contributor to CBS News Sunday Morning, a panelist on NPR’sWait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!, and the host of the PBS show, Science Goes To The Movies, Salie is clearly accomplished. For most of her life, winning approval has been her great motivator, and her essays chronicle the sometimes absurd lengths to which she’s gone to please others. Her very funny, self-deprecating book is an insightful examination of confidence and success.
