About this product
- DescriptionThe Wall Street Journal's popular columnist Jason Gay delivers a hilarious and heartfelt guide to modern living. The book you hold in your hand is a rule book. There have been rule books before--stacks upon stacks of them--but this book is unlike any other rule book you have ever read. It will t make you rich in twenty-four hours, or even seventy-two hours. It will t cause you to lose eighty pounds in a week. This book has abdominal exercises. I have been doing abdominal exercises for most of my adult life, and my abdomen looks like it's always looked. It looks like flan. Syrupy flan. So we can just limit those expectations. This book does t offer a crash diet or a plan for maximizing your best self. I don't kw a thing about your best self. It may be embarrassing. Your best self might be sprinkling peanut M&M's onto rest-stop pizza as we speak. I cant promise that this book is a road map to success. And we should probably set aside the goal of total happiness. There's such thing. <p/> I would, however, like for it to make you laugh. Maybe think. I believe it is possible to find, at any age, a new appreciation for what you have--and what you don't have--as well as for the people closest to you. There's a way to experience life that does t involve a phone, a tablet, a television screen. There's also a way to experience life that does t involve eating seafood at the airport, because you should really never eat seafood at the airport. <p/> Like the title says, I want us all to achieve little victories. I believe that happiness is derived less from a significant single accomplishment than it is from a series of successful daily maneuvers. Maybe it's the way you feel when you walk out the door after drinking six cups of coffee, or surviving a family vacation, or playing the rowdy family Thanksgiving touch football game, or just learning to embrace that music at the gym. Accomplishments do t have to be large to be meaningful. I think little victories are the most important ones in life. -- From the Introduction <p/>From the Hardcover edition.
