How to Be Interesting Embed. You'll need advice. You'll need allies. So you have to tell someone how you feel and what you're up to. Let people in on what you're doing. They will champion and support you more than you ever imagined, and mock you less than you fear. Kind words are quite precious and cost nothing; it's surprising that they're so rare. Laud what you So inter--so short I read it twice. Laud what you enjoy. Praise the people who excel in novel ways. Do it publicly and often.
Everyone needs more encouragement. View 1 comment. Jan 03, Joe rated it did not like it. Shallow, tepid advice for sixth graders who don't know anything about being an adult. May 28, Melissa rated it it was amazing.
Usually reading self help books make me feel pathetic but this one didn't, this book however made me feel extremely hopeful and gave lots of honest answers on what you should do to be more interesting. My favorite one from the book has to be the "Do something, Anything" part where it basically tells you that sitting around and complaining is not an acceptable form of doing something, so go do something, anything. I'd recommend this book to anyone looking to tweak somethings about themselves or ma Usually reading self help books make me feel pathetic but this one didn't, this book however made me feel extremely hopeful and gave lots of honest answers on what you should do to be more interesting.
I'd recommend this book to anyone looking to tweak somethings about themselves or maybe you want to enhance somethings about yourself. Apr 23, Abby Wilfert rated it really liked it. I can honestly say that I throughly enjoyed this book. It does not have a plot; in fact it is more of a manual than anything else.
I do want to mention, however, that there is slightly inapropriate language for the 'very young' children that occurs half a dozen or so times. Although, I myself am not one to look approvingly on bad language swearing , I didn't think to much of the few words that poped up every s 'How To Be Interesting' is a wonderful read that is both caturing and halarious. Although, I myself am not one to look approvingly on bad language swearing , I didn't think to much of the few words that poped up every so often.
So many people asked me about what I reading as the book was carried around and read by myself throughout the day. It is overall a very thought provoking book that gets readers thinking about how we can improve ourselves for the better, not just for others approval but for our own happiness.
Aug 15, SaraLaLa rated it really liked it. I had several emotions when I happened upon this book: How could someone tell you how to be interesting? That's preposterous!
I must pick it up and see what they have to say. This book is cute and says things that makes sense. It's not saying anything that you don't already know, but it reminds you of concepts that you might have forgotten.
It's also really assuring, very encouraging, and a little empowering. No one's noticing the fact that I'm picking I had several emotions when I happened upon this book: No one's noticing the fact that I'm picking up this book, right? God, I don't want people to think that I'm a boring loser that needs a book to make friends or something.
I put it in the middle of the stack of books that I was getting. Now that I've finished the book, I have decided that it'd be a great book to revisit once in a while, especially when you need a little pick-me-up. I could be feeling bored, cowardly, or unworthy, and I feel like this book will help me flex my emotional muscles and think, "Yeah, I can do this! View 2 comments.

Still witty presentation, concise and easy to read. I'll definitely be using it as a source of daily inspiration and means of reminding myself of what's important: Mar 31, Tin rated it really liked it. Jun 23, Paul Signorelli rated it liked it Shelves: Step 2 of "How to Be Interesting," for example, speaks to the artist in each of us: And be generous when you do.
Not everybody went exploring with you. Let them live vicariously through your adventures. If we effectively share those with others as Hagy encourages us to do, we will have reached the goal implied by her title and encouraged by her suggestion that each of us work to "put your own spin on it. Aug 22, Jennifer rated it liked it Shelves: It's kind of ironic and maybe goes without saying that if you literally need a book to tell you how to be interesting, it's probably because you've been lying on the couch binge reading too many books to begin with and should probably put down the book s slowly, slowly, ok now back the fuck away and guide yourself through the front door and out into the weird, weird world instead of relying on another book, you damn junkie.
I was curious, though. How would one learn to be interesting from a b It's kind of ironic and maybe goes without saying that if you literally need a book to tell you how to be interesting, it's probably because you've been lying on the couch binge reading too many books to begin with and should probably put down the book s slowly, slowly, ok now back the fuck away and guide yourself through the front door and out into the weird, weird world instead of relying on another book, you damn junkie.
How would one learn to be interesting from a book? I laughed when I heard this title because I'm exposed to the "books are boring" attitude in my other life.
So from that perspective, a "boring" book instructing one on how to be interesting? How would that work? What would it contain? This is a set instructions? So, it's like a program then? Do I get steps like an alcoholic?
Ways to ween myself off boredom? Will I need to ask forgiveness from family and friends for being so boring all these years?
So, no. Unfortunately, nothing that demeaning. The scrawling childlike handwriting and "circles" on the cover may be better indication of that though. Pretty silly stuff that triggers random thought associations to encourage creative mind wandering. Jul 23, Ibrahim Niftiyev rated it liked it. You can find some interesting parts in this book but on the other hand, there are enough cliche things which are some kind of clutter. Personal development books are not something really heavy on the hand.
I want to give you a formula: Aug 30, Bader Alzahim rated it it was ok. It's obviously waste of time and money. I'd just grabbed it from the shelf in a book store when I was purchasing some books. It's like a special notebook for someone contains general instructions without any examples or stories. It's like chatting with someone you don't know in a public place just for spending free time and you will forget about it after awhile.
Mar 17, Emily rated it it was amazing. A fun and easy read by Jessica Hagy, the creator of Indexed. Her views on life and daily observations are always spot on. This is one of those books that you will want to pick up and re-read once a week. Aug 18, Yunia Damayanti rated it it was amazing Shelves: Just finished this.. I think I'm gonna keep it as my private magic-book.
Very helpful and thoughtful.
Well, I surely need to read this book over and over and over and over again. My very 1st self-improvement book. And I love it. Oct 12, Christine Wallbom rated it it was amazing. Super fun book: Sep 29, Riley M. I found this book while browsing Overdrive.
So I didn't exactly seek it out or know the author, but thought I'd give it a try as it looked like something I might like. I found it hard to finish, as it's a lot of REALLY short anecdotes with hand drawn sketches that are simple info graphics to go with the anecdotes.
I think I'd just rather read a real book that develops its ideas into a more cohesive whole, building up with more detail about how to do things. Each page could work as a simple motiv I found this book while browsing Overdrive.
Each page could work as a simple motivational image, but page after page of such gets a little tiring. I can imagine this working better as an Instagram account for people who want a cute motivational image every day.
I don't think it really works as a book. The ideas contained within are good, but too underdeveloped to really work as a self development book. Jul 13, Kales rated it really liked it Shelves: 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 hipie for me but still great advice and the nuggets of wisdom in there were bountiful. To Buy. Jul 15, Eman Abdulaziz rated it it was amazing. Dares to challenge your deepest views about yourself.

I love how she illustrates her points with the interesting graphs and handwritten notes and ven diagrams. Great way of getting the point across! Feb 07, Irina Garbuz rated it really liked it. El Uno es: Ten cuidado de lo que presumes". Y otro: Si puedes.
Dec 12, Joe Maggiore rated it it was amazing. I started this book once I finished Austin Kleon's books. I had recently experienced some personal failure and on a day-off I decided to travel over to Barnes and noble to go book hunting in the "self motivation" section. I found a lot of good books but this one caught my eye because it was mostly diagrams. This was easily my favorite part about the book.
Every page had these cool graphs or Venn diagrams and some of them were hilarious and ironic.
