In an attempt to reclaim the sullied reputation of mediocrity as a benchmark of relative success, this humorous and unconventional self-appreciation guide celebrates all things ordinary. By focusing on redefining both success and mediocrity, hilarious anecdotes stress how to live life with a truer measure of happiness. Peppered throughout are entries in the "Mediocrity Hall of Fame," highlighting famous folks such as Kylie Minogue, Kevin Costner, and George W. Bush—who aren't as fabulous as they seem. Brimming with hilarious insight and lashings of philosophical genius, the not-so-sage but funny advice provided for working moms, corporate ladder climbers, and jaded singles offers consolation for their perceived shortcomings.
