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.
Chris is a one-of-a-kind guy and I really enjoyed his words of wisdom. He isn't afraid of anything and I think we can all use his great tips of advice!
