"While obstacles, danger, heartache, injustice, and rampant stupidity abound in the modern world, genuine courage seems to be in short supply. From time to time, we could all use a shot of unfiltered courage to get past the challenges that life regularly throws down at our feet." --Bradley Trevor Greive

Even though life comes with more ups than downs, the downs will still be there. The only way to face them is with courage. Not bluff, not bravado, not over-starched underwear, but true courage. In A Teaspoon of Courage, Bradley Trevor Greive uses his hilarious head-on style to show you how to summon your braver self and press on with life.

A Teaspoon of Courage delivers just the right pick-me-up to anyone facing troubled times--those moments of despair when you'd rather crawl back under the covers than face the world again. BTG acknowledges the universality of fear, loss, heartache, anxiety, and body odor, then with gentle wit and firm resolve marches us down the path to steely nerve, and unstoppable passion. "Whether you know it or not," he writes, "you were born tough enough to tackle anything important in life."

BTG weaves his laser-sharp insights and practical tips for courageous living with fresh and funny animal portraits, further reinforcing his message that no one is immune to fearful feelings. This exquisite gift book is ideal for Monday mornings, dentist appointments, ending lousy relationships, eating haggis, and facing life's difficulties head on.

About the author (2006)

Since the debut of his international bestseller The Blue Day Book, Bradley Trevor Greive has become a household name in more than 115 countries. A former Australian paratrooper, BTG left the army to pursue more creative misadventures. He has been bitten by wild monkeys and rabid bats and was accepted into Russia's cosmonaut training program-though those incidents were, by and large, unrelated. BTG spends most of his time in a tiny Tasmanian hamlet.
