Readers of the mega-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul self-help books may also find strength and comfort in this 15-track companion collection, subtitled "Songs of Friendship, Brotherhood and Sisterhood." The focus is on feel-good hits from the 1960s to the 1980s, including Andrew Gold's "Thank You for Being a Friend," Bill Withers' "Lean on Me," the Hollies' "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother" and the Eurythmics/Aretha Franklin duet "Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves," all of which only goes to prove that one man's chicken soup is another man's ipecac.
