How to Be Interesting.
Just started reading “How to be Interesting” by Jessica Hagy. This is one of the 14 books recommended by Seth Godin to read this year. About this book he says:
If you’ve ever read my About page, you know that I found life after college to be impossibly boring. Probably because I was impossibly boring. I saw this book on the shelf several times before I picked it up and when I finally did, it became one of my favorite books of the year. Just like Steal Like an Artist, it’s a collection of thought-provoking illustrations. I’ll be coming back to this again and again.

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.
Jessica Hagy is known for her Webby Award–winning blog Indexed. Her cartoons regularly appear in the New York Times, and she writes an online column for Forbes. Ms. Hagy lives with her family in Seattle.
