Description

"5'1 is the new 6'2, and Becky's book proves it." -Kristen Bell
Leggy supermodels and pro basketball players be warned: being tall doesn't mean you're always a step up in life Graphic designer Becky Murphy is five-foot-nothing and proud to be petite. Sure, sometimes being diminutive gets you the short end of the stick, but there are also plenty of unique advantages to being under 5'4"--and Murphy has compiled the 100 best reasons in the delightfully whimsical I'd Rather Be Short. Illustrated in a charming, quirky style, I'd Rather Be Short highlights the benefits of being petite, from the sensible to the absurd, including:

- You get the best of both worlds: kids' meals and cocktail parties
- You're never expected to help your friends move
- Concertgoers usually won't hassle you when you shimmy up to the front
- You're less likely to get struck by lightning
- Skirts can be dresses; dresses can be skirts
- You're just the way you should be

Witty and heartwarming, I'd Rather Be Short is a celebration of self-acceptance--and an instant ego boost to pint-sized ladies everywhere.
