Bradley Trevor Greive has a touch of the show­man about him, but it takes more than a larger-than-life per­sona to achieve his kind of suc­cess. At last count, Greive had sold 30 mil­lion books, kick­ing off with The Blue Day Book se­ries that cou­pled cute pic­tures of an­i­mals with pithy com­ments (a com­bi­na­tion that puts him way ahead of cat memes on so­cial me­dia). As our in­ter­view re­veals, be­yond big ges­tures and self-dep­re­cat­ing wit is a man who thinks big, spends much time alone and be­lieves in the power of per­sis­tence to re­alise his some­times out­landish goals. For a ses­sion on how to do it BTG-style, look out for his ap­pear­ances at the Tas­ma­nian Writ­ers and Read­ers Fes­ti­val in Ho­bart next month. Also this week, we spend a night with fish­er­man Chris Massie aboard his boat dur­ing his solo protest against a fish farm at Oke­hamp­ton Bay on the East Coast. And we look be­yond the gym to a fun and dar­ing form of ex­er­cise for adults as well as chil­dren.
