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

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
