It's difficult to categorise this book exactly, and although it's not specifically a self-help book, it does provide pointers on how to improve your life. Don't get me wrong, it's not another '5 steps to happiness' affair, but even the back cover blurb hints that the content within will show you 'How to live at the intersection of wonder, awe and curiosity'. A lofty goal indeed, but this book somehow manages to at least get you thinking about how to achieve this within it 250 or so pages of amazing sketches and bite-sized nuggets of wisdom.
If you've come across Jessica Hagy's work before then you'll know what to expect, and you won't be disappointed. There are lots of thought-provoking Venn diagrams and that's-so-obviously-true-but-I've-never-thought-about-that-relationship-before XY graphs. If you haven't come across the author's work then a quick web search or preview of this book will tell you all you need to know.
In summary, this is a great book to keep on your desk or coffee table, and I find myself constantly dipping into it throughout the day and enjoying the bite-sized nuggets of inspiration and motivation. Trust me, some pages will make you laugh and some might make you think, but nearly every page will make you smile.
As a budding entrepreneur I can also recommend two other books which are similar in concept to this one, but obviously a bit more business-focused (although not boring!) Hugh MacLeod's inspirational Ignore Everybody and the excellent 37signals' ReWork: Change the Way You Work Forever
