Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Agrawal, who founded New York City's farm-to-table pizzeria Slice at age 25, presents a unique approach to happiness and fulfillment: "doing cool shH t." Her success story is likely to lure potential readers: she's now partnering with Zappos.com founder Tony Hsieh (who contributes the book's foreword) to open Slice: Las Vegas. Offering a combination of vivid stories with action-able advice, Agrawal helps readers define and achieve their personalized versions of success. A cornerstone of her advice centers on mutually beneficial experiences. She encourages the evaluation of all relationships through a mutually beneficial lens and then prompts action, whether it means asking for change or moving on. Throughout, she challenges the reader to continually ask questions and to assess using her "BET" (bullet, eliminate, and take on) system, which consists of creating a segmented list of commitments, affiliations, and people. The result: eliminating the unworthy, nurturing the useful, and initiating new activities that conform with personal goals. Simple yet powerful, Agrawal's process liberates readers from conventional thinking and restrictions, freeing them to pursue their passions and make a living at the same time. (Aug.)
Seth Godin
“Miki Agrawal is a real piece of work. It turns out that so are you. Once you read her high-energy book, you might be able to embrace the gifts you already have and go take advantage of them.”
Marie Forleo
“This book is your official permission slip to quit yappin’ and make it happen. Miki’s book is smart, straightforward and a ton of fun—a must read for any aspiring entrepreneur.”
Ben Rattray
“Miki is an unstoppable force in successful pursuit of a rich and fulfilled life, and a source of practical wisdom for how you can be the same. The more people that follow her advice, the better the world will be.”
Lee Zlotoff
“If MacGyver were a woman she would look a lot like Miki Agrawal-she might even BE Miki. But this book makes it clear just how to tap into your inner MacGyver and transform your life!”

    Good for younger readers but message does wander off toward the end

    The author uses excellent examples from her own experience to underscore her points. However the book continues beyond where it should have ended. The message becomes muddled from a clear business start-up strategy to hodge podge of vsrious topics the author discusses. I did not expect,nor did I want dietary and exercise advice.
