This book is a refreshing read. It's self-help from the perspective of a wholly original mind. I loved the lessons Philippe has gained from a lifetime of being self-taught. His dedication to overcoming any challenge, disregarding any problem. It makes me feel as if there is so much more we can achieve if we just ignore what others say. Philippe has a lovely 'voice' and the recommendations for music to listen to per chapter as well as his further reading notes add to the book. A charming, fast and quirky read.
