No Excuses! How What You Say Can Get In Your Way by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer follows the story of a young boy who dreams of being a marine biologist so he can help save the lives of endangered sea turtles. However, he soon begins to think that this goal is unobtainable to him coming from a family of farmers, and science is not his best subject. There are also other excuses that adults around him produce. But soon he discovers there are ways to identify and do away with excuses and learn that with a world free of excuses we can realize our potential.
Set in a picture book format with colourful illustrations and a ‘Excuse/Not an Excuse’ quiz, young readers will enjoy the story and become aware that excuses can become a barrier to realizing their own dreams and possibilities.
