  • Ray Bennett's Underachiever's Manifesto stopped me in my I'm not good enough yet' tracks. I love this book and share its wisdom often.
    Madness prevailed in my life when I moved to New Zealand, had a third baby and spent his first year doing 4 post grad nursing papers.
    I saw the light about 10 papers and qualifications bursting out of my CV and regained my sense of humour realising that no one in the health services gives a monkey's uncle how much I've studied to be the best child health nurse I can be.
    It only increases the frustration to recognise the possibilities for improvement and not be able to achieve them.
    I once had a performance review and on asking my displeased manager to spell out the sins I'd committed was told three things.
    The first two would only be understood by Maori. The third sun was ' Barbara, you are just far too enthusiastic '.
    At age 56 and my first ever management role of 4 years and 3 months now six months behind me, I feel finally relieved of any further requirement in my life to strive for overachievement.
    Thankyou Dr Bennet!

  • after reading this book I realized that I didn't have to get my poetry published to love my poems. I get to send them to people who enjoy them and go to
    coffee houses and do the open mike thing. I'm exploring the idea of going back to work after having been disabled for quite awhile. I was a department secretary and later an office manager. Whoo the stress. I have decided to reenter the business world as an office clerk. I don't have to worry about where I work because even though I might lose my social.security check for a couple years, I'll keep my retirement check and great state insurance. it will even be more money than I had as an office manager who constantly was supposed to make miracles happen. I sure am glad I'm not the great deity. anyway the book was good medicine. thanx

  • Bennett, a medical doctor, also has a penchant for humor. He elicits genuine wisdom as he pokes fun at probably most Americans and our go-go overachiever attitude. He promotes living life to the least and loving it. In this small short book you laugh your way through the ten principles of underachievement and the practical applications of these principles in work, love, diet, exercise, investment and more. It is a laugh-out-loud treatment of a truly serious issue. Probably the best cure for our insane drive to be best, fastest, first, etc. is to see how utterly ridiculous it is and laugh heartily.

  • I really enjoyed this book, after I was done with it I even gave it to my old boyfriend as a gift (it is very small and easy to read, only thirty minutes). It had a lot of Zen qualities to it that I think most people would appreciate.

    Here are the 10 principles of underachievement:

    1) Life's too short
    2) Control is an illusion
    3) Expectations lead to misery
    4) Great expectations lead to great misery
    5) Achievement creates expectations
    6) The law of diminishing returns applies everywhere
    7) Perfect is the enemy of good
    8) The tallest blade of grass is sure to be cut
    9) Accomplishment is in the eye of the beholder
    10) The 4-per-cent value added principle (or.. being alive is your greatest achievement)

    Try to find it online or at your library if you can, otherwise buy it and pass it on to a friend.

  • This book is a delightful read and oddly very reassuring if you are like me- a perfectionist perpetually dissatisfied with myself for not being perfect. (Which does not exist, I know, hence my angst.) it's very compassionate and reassuring in reminding me why it's okay to be imperfect.

  • Made me feel better about myself. Recommended by a Therapist on Twitter so I thought I would give it a try.

  • The book arrived quickly. It is a beautiful little book, and a great read. I am very happy with my purchase.

  • Good advice, loved the humor. Will take some pointers to take my over -achieving attitude down a notch ????. Quick read.
