Publisher's Summary

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.

I feel bad writing this review as I haven't posted a negative review for a book, ever. But after listening to this one for an hour or 2, I couldn't get past how redundant the message was. Every 5 minutes the author taunts you with his (or his friends) world travels, and how you should just pick up and go travel the world. This books is definitely guided by the authors past travels, but I didn't catch any tools or plans to help live life differently.

Maybe that comes later in the book, but again, I couldn't get past his redundant rambling on his own life. It's cool, you work where you want and when you want. I get it, just don't keep repeating it every other paragraph!

Good concept; Not the best execution

The author seems to have lived some kind of magical life in which he's done amazing things that most people wouldn't attempt, all without negative consequences. Good for him, really! But I would have liked to have some advice for people like me who want to bring some less dramatic forms of non-conformity into their lives.
