The Book for People Who Do Too MuchBook - 2004
"Hard work never killed anybody." But Bradley Trevor Greive (BTG) wants us to know when enough's enough! Hilarious and excruciatingly perceptive, THE BOOK FOR PEOPLE WHO DO TOO MUCH reminds us that, in fact, hard work has killed a whole bunch of people! It has also caused premature aging, unsightly baldness, and explosive indigestion and is responsible for a lot of very questionable fashion statements. Too many people drive themselves beyond reasonable limits to do more, have more, and be more. BTG points out that ironically, they often end up with a lot less. "It's like climbing mountain after mountain and never taking the time to look at the view," he says. With his trademark combination of engaging animal photos, gentle humour, and priceless insights, BTG urges us to have the courage to say NO, and to learn to use this liberating two- letter word in a way that is amusing and empowering and won't offend… too much. Saying no can sound selfish, but by protecting our time and energy to fully enjoy our lives and pursue our true passions, we'll ultimately have a lot more of ourselves to share with those who are most precious to us.
