"You want to leave a mark, not a blemish. Be a hero, not a spectator. You want to be interesting. (Who doesn't?) But sometimes it takes a nudge, a wake-up call, an intervention!-and a little help. This is where Jessica Hagy comes in. A writer and illustrator of great economy, charm, and insight, she's created How to Be Interesting, a uniquely inspirational how-to that combines fresh and pithy lessons with deceptively simple diagrams and charts. Ms. Hagy started on Forbes.com, where she's a weekly blogger, by creating a "How to Be Interesting" post that went viral, attracting 1.4 million viewers so far, with tens of thousands of them liking, linking, and tweeting the article. Now she's deeply explored the ideas that resonated with so many readers to create this small and quirky book with a large and universal message. It's a book about exploring: Talk to strangers. About taking chances: Expose yourself to ridicule, to risk, to wild ideas. About being childlike, not childish: Remember how amazing the world was before you learned to be cynical. About being open: Never take in the welcome mat. About breaking routine: Take daily vaca- tions ... if only for a few minutes. About taking ownership: Whatever you're doing, enjoy it, embrace it, master it as well as you can. And about growing a pair: If you're not courageous, you're going to be hanging around the water cooler, talking about the guy that actually is."-- Provided by publisher.

What a wonderful, light, deep, humorous read. I thoroughly enjoyed this and am glad I randomly picked it up from the library. It was thoughtful and intriguing. I enjoyed the points -- some of them were a little hippie for me but still great advice and the nuggets of wisdom in there were bountiful.
