If you've ever thought, "There must be more to life than this," The Art of Non-Conformity is for you.

Based on Chris Guillebeau's popular online manifesto "A Brief Guide to World Domination," The Art of Non-Conformity defies common assumptions about life and work while arming you with the tools to live differently. You'll discover how to live on your own terms by exploring creative self-employment, radical goal-setting, contrarian travel, and embracing life as a constant adventure.

Inspired and guided by Chris's own story and those of others who have pursued unconventional lives, you can devise your own plan for world domination-and make the world a better place at the same time.

A good read for Gen Y

Anyone who is lost and feeling frustrated in the current climate, especially after being a few years outside of school should definitely read this book for a bit of inspiration. Guillebeau is very clear about his reasoning and provides a compelling argument about pursuing your own happiness rather than work for someone elses which many of us are conditioned to do basically from birth. He also encourages taking an active role in your life rather than your life taking an active role on you. My one criticism is that sometimes he focused too much on his own adventures and a few other individuals as relative successes. Of course he highlights others but it sometimes felt a bit too general. But that's a minor quibble.

A must read for all young adults who are frustrated with the status quo.

A Good Read

This was a “good” book. A lot of “good” moments in the book and an abundance of “good” quotes. However, it was a “great” read or a “great” book. Personally, some of the suggestions in the book I have already applied to my life. However, it did feel good to give it a label and to gain a different point of view. I am writing this review within 10 minutes of reading this book, so I am still processing the information I just read. Therefore l, as of right now, it was a “good” book.

Time for Change

Have usually come across a lot of bitter people in life and have been doing a pretty great job at cutting out a lot of them and something that has always been thought of is, “Wow, I’d *never* want to be anything like that.” Glad to see there’s a good book that thinks likewise that we need less of those. Going to give it the absolute best with going out with life. Thanks for everything.
