Leggy supermodels and pro basketball players be warned: being tall doesnt mean youre 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 54and Murphy has compiled the 100 best reasons in the delightfully whimsical Id Rather Be Short. Illustrated in a charming, quirky style, Id 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
Youre never expected to help your friends move
Concertgoers usually wont hassle you when you shimmy up to the front
Youre less likely to get struck by lightning
Skirts can be dresses; dresses can be skirts
Youre just the way you should be

Witty and heartwarming, Id Rather Be Short is a celebration of self-acceptanceand an instant ego boost to pint-sized ladies everywhere.
