Synopsis

The product of a unique vision that adds up to an entirely new kind of book, Jessica Hagy’s How to Be Interesting combines fresh, surprising lessons with deceptively simple diagrams and charts. It’s an inspiring guide to leading a richer life that nudges us out of our comfort zones and into places where everything is possible.

Passionate, positive, down-to-earth, and irrepressibly upbeat, it teaches us that being interesting is about being interested. It’s about taking chances—but also about taking daily vacations. It’s about ideas, creativity, and risk. It’s about trusting our talents and doing only what we want—but having the courage to get lost and see where the path leads.

“Build your reputation with kindness.” “Start big things now.” “Live beyond your resume.” With an additional shot of visual inspiration for recent graduates, this exclusive Kobo edition contains an addendum featuring 12 more of Jessica Hagy’s original graphs and charts.
New York Times, and she writes an online column for Forbes. She lives with her family in Seattle.

Fun read
January 19th, 2014
A fun read. All good advice and in simple, fun language. A gentle kick in the pants to embrace our individuality, use our own voice, and stand up to the fears that hold us back.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
May 6th, 2013
What i love most abt this books are indeed the illustrations and the inspiration it conveys. Most of the selfdevelopment books teach you how to be smart, or how to be happy, or productive and none of those shows u how to be interesting/not boring as u always thought u were. Life is not just straining yourself to make money, its about enjoying what we have and how we live. After reading this, i kept myself a journal to keep track of every lessons in my life, decorate it with many colors and start to pride myself on it. :) life is just simple as ever.

Picks you up and dusts you off
March 22nd, 2013
Jessica Hagy's insights provide the encouragement to keep on trying. No promises, no magic, no mysticism. Just thought provoking suggestions on how to make your life more what you want it to be. The diagrams made me smile, then think. A perfect punch after each snippet. Some ideas will suggest changes you can make. Some will encourage you to try something again. Some will reaffirm things you are alley doing; ones that may have brought frowns from more closed minded people.
