Title: Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations
Authors: Alex and Brett Harris
Publisher: Multnomah Books (2008)
In Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations, twin brothers Alex
and Brett Harris challenge their peers to join them in their “rebelution.” This rebellion
against mediocrity (or worse) is intended to revolutionize how young people conduct
their lives, exceeding their – and others – expectations. Originally started as a website
that encouraged like-minded teens to join them in battling against the low standards
set by culture, this book carries the message to an even larger audience and invites
other to join in the same counter-cultural pursuit of rising above and beyond what is
considered “acceptable” teenage behavior.
