The Book for People Who Do Too Much

The Book for People Who Do Too Much

New York Times best-selling author Bradley Trevor Greive, creator of the modem classic The Blue D9 Book, is now a household name in more than thirty­five countries. His seven previous books have won awards throughout the globe, with seven million copies sold worldwide. In The Book for People Who Do Too Much, Bradley reminds us that too many people drive themselves beyond reasonable limits to do more, have more, and be more. He points out that, ironically, they often end up with a lot less. With his trademark combination of engaging animal photos, gentle humour, and price­less insights, BTG urges us to have the courage to say no, and to learn to use this liberating two-letter word in a way that is amusing, empowering, and won't offend-too much. Saying no can sound selfish, but by protecting our time and energy to fully enioy our lives and pursue our true passions, we'll ultimately have a lot more of ourselves to share with those who are most precious to us.

BBC: Unforgettable places to see before you die

Unforgettable places to see before you die

We only get one life so we owe it to ourselves to see as much of this beautiful World as possible. For many of us, lying on a beach for two weeks each year is just not enough any more. We want to. see ancient monuments, extraordinary scenery, endangered wildlife, foreign cultures., architecture and art - places that give us the chance. to grow and expand our horizons. Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die will help you to search out some of these essential destinations and experiences.

International travel writer and photographer Steve Davey has drawn on his years of experience in selecting forty of his favourite places. Some, such as the Taj Mahal and the Alhambra, are relatively well-known, but most, such as the incredible temple of Angkor Wat in Cambodia and the amazing sand dunes of Dead Vlei in the Namib desert, are very much off the beaten track. Some, such as Venice or New York, involve relatively comfortable journeys, whilst others present more of a challenge - crossing the wilderness to see the rock-hewn churches at Lalibela in Ethiopia, for example, or trekking for nine days at altitude to see the stunning Himalayan scenery around Makalu in Nepal.

Although there are plenty of tips for travellers, this is not a travel guide, and is certainly not definitive, but it will introduce you to a host of spectacular locations, all of which can be visited in a holiday of two weeks or less. Beautifully illustrated throughout with specially commissioned photographs, this is

a book that will inspire you to think beyond walls of your room and take timeout to visit of the world's truly unforgettable places.
