Publisher's Summary

Stop struggling and stressing yourself out. Stop being miserable because you think it is required to make the world a better place. Stop being a martyr.

This is not your typical sustainability book. It doesn't waste time throwing the usual suspects under the bus, blaming them for all of our problems, and leaving you feeling angry. Instead, it directly asks you to accept that there will always be people to blame for why things aren't the way you wish...and helps you become a master at dealing with them anyway!

You can be happy...and a passionate advocate. You can fight for a better world...and have fulfilling relationships with people who disagree with you. You can be a total badass for social and environmental causes...and still sleep well at night. In fact, you better start soon or you'll burn out before you accomplish all the cool stuff you've been dreaming about.

Adam Hammes weaves together personal stories from two decades of advocacy as a world traveler, environmental educator, nonprofit founder, business professor, corporate manager of sustainability, and sustainability consultant in ways that connect with our own personal journey. With stories from other social and environmental advocates, you can see some universal experiences that open us all up to realizing where we're holding ourselves back.

Critic Reviews

"This is not another preachy book about sustainability that makes you feel even more overwhelmed, confused, and small. It's a book that puts you and your role at the forefront of it all." (Michele Beschen, remake.life and B.Organic)
"Finally, a sustainability book that isn't putting me to sleep. Barely cracked this open and already loving it!" (Marc Angelo Coppolla, cofounder, the Valahlla Movement Foundation)

Miserable book

Miserable book about an author who feels sorry for himself (despite a perfect childhood), and talks about what a hero he is.
