The Book for People Who Do Too Much


The Book for People Who Do Too Much Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New York Times best-selling author Bradley Trevor Greive, creator of the modern classic The Blue Day Book, is now a household name in more than 30 countries.

Hard work never killed anybody. This conviction built our great nation and made it the star-spangled superpower that it is. But Bradley Trevor Greive (BTG) wants us to know when enough's enough! Funny and 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 actually 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 humor, 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, but never offensive. Saying no can sound selfish, but by saving time to enjoy our lives and pursue our true passions, we'll ultimately have a lot more of ourselves to share with those who are most special to us.

About the Author

Bradley Trevor Greive was born in Australia's untamed island state of Tasmania in 1970, but spent most of his childhood living in the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, and Singapore. A graduate of Australia's Royal Military College, BTG served as a paratroop platoon commander before leaving military service to pursue more creative misadventures. The change of direction has paid off; his work consistently dominates the gift book charts. Also an award-winning artist, cartoonist, poet, toy designer, screenwriter, and inventor, BTG lives mostly in Sydney, Australia, with his rabbit, Biff.
