"This book is helping me live my best life and Adam J. Kurtz is my fave therapist!" -Tavi Gevinson, Editor-in-Chief, Rookie "I am so grateful to have Pick Me Up in my life. It saves me so much money on therapy and is way more fun anyway. Stay in, order a pizza and scribble your way out of that deep dark hole." -Michelle Branch, musician "Adam J. Kurtz is a magician: the alchemist of paper and pencil, rendering our inner lives visible, tactile and full of potentiality. He reminds us that creativity is the coolest of all resources--infinite, fun, free--and that we are blessed to have it." -Melissa Broder, author of So Sad Today
