Stop and smell the roses. It’s not something you see much of today. Everyone’s always go, go, go and trying to outdo one another. The importance of taking the time to just live in the moment and be carefree is lost in today’s overextended society. It’s become the norm to overwork and push yourself to stressful limits. The pressure of succeeding is daunting and Dr. Ray Bennett’s urging people to turn it down a notch in “The Underachiever’s Manifesto.” The 96-page book is a lighthearted pocket guide to living life to the least.

Bennett also gives examples from philosophy, economics, science, and good old common sense that support underachieving. You’ll also learn helpful strategies and tips for living life to the least and loving it. Bennett uses humor, but also logic to explain why keeping up the Joneses is not what we should strive for.
