"A Little Book of Encouragement for Whenever You Need It" - so proclaims the cover of this little gem of a book designed to provide vignettes of encouragement with each animal photo. The true heart or punch of this little book can be found at the very end in the "Emergency Epilogue (to be read when more than A Teaspoon of Courage is needed)" in the poem Invictus by William Ernest Henley, 1849 - 1903. Powerful. ( )

I found this book to be a bit preachy and corny at times, but then again, that may be what someone needs to read from time to time. The main thing I liked about this book was all of the cute photographs in it-- it definitely had plenty of those. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0740754726, Hardcover)

"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.
