Description


The Underachiever's Manifesto is the playfully persuasive pocket guide to living life to the least and loving it. This isn't your average handbook—this is a funny self-help book for our ongoing modern age of overachievement.

The book makes the case for just the right amount of effort—a lot less than we've been led to believe—and reveals how mediocrity is the key to happiness at work, in relationships, dieting, exercise, investment, and more.

• Contains easy-to-follow advice with gentle humor and genuine wisdom
• Addresses issues such as social media stress, FOMO, and the life-draining tragedy of tidying up
• Author Ray Bennett is a medical specialist in Seattle and a recovering overachiever

This welcome new edition—revised just enough but not going overboard—brings its needed-now-more-than-ever perspective to our new era of fitness tracking, app overload, and tidying up.

Turn it down a notch. Don't you feel better already?

• Humorous but actually helpful—a rarity for self-help books
• Perfect for overachievers, underachievers, anyone looking for a funny, friendly way to take things down a notch
• Great for those who loved The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life by Mark Manson, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and into Your Life by Gary John Bishop, and How to Be an Imperfectionist: The New Way to Self-Acceptance, Fearless Living, and Freedom from Perfectionism by Stephen Guise
