A witty, subversive guide that turns conventional “wisdom”" upside down!
Too many books tell us what to do to achieve happiness---unfortunately, often at great risk, expense, or effort. 101 Things NOT to Do Before You Die is not one of those books. It’s a book for the rest of us.
Robert W. Harris says it’s what we don’t do that determines our happiness quotient. Using the exciting principle of “selective inaction,” the author helps us adjust our thinking so we can make more satisfying decisions in everyday situations.
For example, do you think you’ll feel complete if you try to run with the bulls? Don’t do it! Do you feel compelled to drive around searching for the “best” parking spot? Don’t do it! Are you sometimes tempted to confuse Randy Quaid with Dennis Quaid? Just don’t do it!
Do you think that you should watch the colorized version of It’s a Wonderful Life? Or ponder the lyrics to “Louie, Louie”? Or read War and Peace? Or push an elevator button more than twice? Think again! In many cases, you’ll be better off not doing what “they” say you should do. Let 101 Things NOT to Do Before You Die be your guide to getting more out of life---simply by doing less.
