What really struck me about, Jessica Hagy’s, “How to be Interesting (in 10 Simple Steps)“, was both its simplicity and profundity.

Through the use of her trademark simple, ‘index card’ sketches, and wonderfully succinct text, Ms. Hagy shows the reader what it takes to become an interesting person. What I found particularly wonderful was that you can replace the word, “Interesting” in the title with, “Innovative”, “Creative”, “Designful” or any other type of change agent type term and the book would still be apropos.

Therein lies the profundity of the book.

One could be tempted to simply quick flip through the book – after all, it’s just pictures, right?

Wrong. Just because I said the book was ‘Simple’ does mean it’s ‘easy’, per se. I purposely took my time with this little gem. It deserves the 3 R’s: Reading, Reflection, Re-Reading. That process of reflecting takes effort and if someone really wants to grow, it’s never going to be easy.

Being interesting, an innovator, a designer, a change agent – all those require stretching the self. This book is a great reminder of that.

If you want to be more, create more, experience more, share more, make-the-world-a-better-place-more, this book is for you.

Enjoy!

PS When you read it, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
