Eric Minton officially launches his book "It's Not You, It's Everything: What Our Pain Reveals about the Anxious Pursuit of the Good Life."

Eric Minton is a writer, ordained Baptist minister and psychotherapist specializing in marriage and family therapy. He and his wife, Lindsay, live in Knoxville, TN with their son, where they operate Minton Family Therapy, a full-service psychotherapy practice treating individuals, couples and whole families.

"It's Not You, It's Everything" is a timely and incisive inquiry into the anxious pursuit of happiness at all costs. Psychotherapist and former pastor Eric Minton claims that the pernicious melding of capitalism and Christianity means a world of competition, perfection, and scarcity disguised as self-help and self-care. Rather than shaming, silencing, or medicating away our disappointment at not having obtained the happiness we were promised, however, Minton posits a radical alternative. In an impertinent, droll, yet pastoral voice, Minton suggests that our "not-okayness" will require rethinking everything we thought we knew about God, depression, the economy, culture, education, technology, and happiness.
