In You Take the High Road and I'll Take the Bus, Carrie Cox heroically reclaims the sullied reputation of mediocrity. And along the way redefines success, reveals the meaning of life, and gets us through that awkward lull between the cricket and footie season (not bad for just 220 pages, huh?)

A real person's guide to getting by in this difficult thing called life, Carrie Cox rightly shows that basic survival and so-called ordinariness are not only big asks, they're bloody great achievements. The mediocre among us should be profiled, recognised and celebrated - heck, who didn't love Steve Bradbury that little bit more for the way he won his Olympic gold?

Brimming with humour and lashings of philosophical genius, You Take the High Road and I'll Take the Bus is full of modern day wit and wisdom as well as a look at mediocrity's historic evolution: the twists and turns, people and events that paved its slide from a measure of greatness (circa June 1528) to a modern mark of obscurity. ‘But no more! says this modern bible of self-appreciation, mediocrity will have its day on the sun-lounge again.

You Take the High Road and I'll Take the Bus is for anyone who's tired of trying to do it all: working mums, those finding the corporate ladder is more like a fireman's pole, jaded singles, guys trying to ‘be there' and still follow their favourite code - it's a sea-change for the psyche. And a bloody good laugh.
