Ignore Everybody by Hugh MacLeod

It is quick book review night.  Once again, the reviews aren’t that long, and it’s not super comprehensive.  It’s just simple.

Ignore Everybody is a book by Hugh MacLeod.  If you click on the title, it’ll take you to his website.  He’s a cartoonist that started drawing cartoons on the back of business cards.  He has created a genre of art.  He chronicles his adventures and corresponding cartoons on the back of these cards.  He shares the lessons on creativity and life.  I enjoyed the variety of emotions and journey through his experiences.  For me, the over arching take away was – to be yourself – to unapologetically take responsibility and control.  In some ways, he shows me that ignoring everybody helps me to create an environment conducive for creativity.

  1. Exact ideas that been running through my mind all the time! There’s this one book that I bought before, it’s simple yet motivational- “it’s not how good you are, it’s how good you wan to be” by paul arden. Presented in a very simple graphic layouts and the phrases were very short, but it hit me!

    1. I have that book as well. I should review it because I have read it. It was an easy read, but absolutely inspirational. I love the creativity that it takes to be inspirational. You have to realize though that they can only be inspirational because they’ve worked through the hard experiences.
      Did you read my post on suffering and creativity? You have to check that one out – well, not so much the post, but the video that I added to the post.
