Everyone’s Advice Is Wrong . . . Including Mine

A couple of years ago, a buddy of mine, Brent, to whom this book is dedicated, told me that he was reading a self-help book. My natural response was, “Sounds stupid. I’m sure I can write you a better one.”

The result: a half memoir, quasi self-help comedy experience creation titled Everyone’s Advice Is Wrong . . . Including Mine 

The book is divided into 2 parts: Part I: Trial And Mostly Error and Part II: Take Control Of Your Vacation.

Part I recounts the story of an incorrigible entrepreneur’s journey from college to law school to business school, to Dubai, to Shanghai (twice), to being transplanted to Michigan only to be fired 80 days after starting at GM, to leave for an off the grid trip to Europe, only to come back to the U.S. to start all over again as a lawyer, professor of law, then . . .

Part II applies all the lessons from Part I by detailing a clever Ten-Step guide where everyone disillusioned with their cubicle can finally break free. The first step of Part II, Enjoy #ThePointsOfLife, is a guide for accumulating the points needed to take that dream trip today. A vacation from the norm is the spark needed to discover that there is a world outside of the office. Armed with a fresh, new attitude it is time to tackle the rest of the steps in order to say goodbye to the cubicle forever.

The book is timely, humorous, intellectual, and practical. There is advanced content, e.g., using a finance model, the CAPM model, to answer the question, “What is happiness?” (see Part I: Step 10: Happily Ever After = Sustainability.). There is also an abundance of funny content detailing how to survive the lulls of the office. (see Part II: Step 2: Make Tuesday Hump Day.) The book demonstrates, by using worldly examples, the importance of travel, mental tenacity, physical toughness, and the necessity of being in it for the long run.

Readers will not only have a good laugh witnessing a scholarly buffoon bumble his way through the entrepreneurial maze, but also peruse a relatable guide on how they can do it themselves, hopefully more efficiently.

If you’re looking for a more details read some of the excerpts from Part I and Part II: Or, easier still, skim the table of contents listed below. Alternatively, you could purchase the book.
