Twenty-first-century Americans are on a mission to cram every second of their earthly existence with significant accomplishments and momentous events. Even the most mundane undertaking must be approached with zeal, gusto, and expertise, or so the media persuade us to believe. Are we capable of doing anything casually anymore?

Bishop argues that American audiences are assaulted with messages that the ordinary, and often private, aspects of our lives -- family, childhood, parenting, education, food, sports, home improvement -- must be showcased publicly and with extreme passion."--Publisher's description."
