A hilarious little book that's only as big as it has to be to explain why underachievers are the winners in every aspect of life. It's a manifesto, not a guide book, so it's not going to tell you how to be an underachiever. Most of its examples are focused on middle class, professional America, the doctors and traders who are constantly climbing on top of each other to be the top of the pile, but as a student who often feels the pressure of scholarships, internships, grades, and various extracurricular demands on my time, I found this book served as a good reminder that if you don't have your mental health, you don't have anything.

Short, succinct, and the perfect book to give to someone who's working so hard they've forgotten how to get pleasure out of life. Written with humor and without preaching, it's a quick read and well worth the $10. ( )

I was originally hooked by the title of this book. While written in a humorous style, it really does have some valid points. You don't need to be perfect at everything. Slack off a little and enjoy life more. ( )

Underachievers are the best, most dependable workers. This may seem counterintuitive, but the key here is that while some achievement is necessary and good for productivity, a lot of it is dangerous to you and everyone around you.
