Personally, I think that much of what is wrong with today's world is due to people looking at it through an old lens. In Chapter 17, Hugh looks at the changing world and notes that the ability to visualize the world as it's becoming will be paramount to your success. I could list a plethora of the advice Hugh discusses in his book, but I really feel that you should pick it up and check it out for yourself. In my opinion, it's good value for the price and is a book that will probably become quite dog-eared as I turn back to it for further inspiration or just that virtual kick in the butt Hugh is so talented at delivering.
Through humour and the timely dispensation of truisms, Hugh MacLeod has developed a book that is fun to read and yet still makes you think and perhaps even believe in yourself and your projects a little bit more. Ignore Everybody is motivational without being sickeningly sweet or as overbearing as a drill sergeant. He gives you the impetus to create and forge a way forward while giving you a reason to smile with every turn of the page.
