Overview

The Teen's Guide to World Domination: Advice on Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Awesomeness by Josh Shipp

Josh Shipp has been serving up a healthy dose of "advice with an attitude" to millions of teens for over a decade, in front of packed auditoriums across the country. For the first time ever, Josh is pulling together all of his unique advice for "world domination" into a must-have survival guide. Hilarious, inspirational, and authentic, Josh offers golden nuggets of wisdom for everything that has you freaking out (pretty much all the stuff you can't fathom addressing with Mom and Dad). So, summon your inner hero and learn to dominate the seven "villains" that are keeping you from awesomeness.

GHOSTS: All your painful memories and bad mistakes, which are holding you back and causing self-doubt. Confront them once and for all

NINJAS: Back-stabbing "friends" who earn your trust to fulfill their own agendas. Call them out and they won't stand a chance

PIRATES: Bullies and bad boyfriends who take advantage of you. Write them off and tune them out

ROBOTS: Well-intentioned but misguided grown-ups, who want to "program" you to be like them. Understand how parents, teachers, and counselors operate to improve your communication

VAMPIRES: Negative influences and addictions, which draw you in and steal your identity. Regain your self-esteem before you get bit

ZOMBIES: Chronic complainers who drag you down with their pessimism. The best zombie-repellant is gratitude! Learn that it's not what happens to you, it's how you respond

PUPPIES: They seem all fun and innocent on the surface, but often blindside you with hidden consequences. Learn how to think smart about money, your hot girlfriend, and other temptations

I loved this book so much. I got it right after an awful BFF breakup. It really gave me some awesome advice and a new look on everything. It was entertaining too. It really connected to my life a lot. It helped me through my hard times and improved me. Im going to have to now give it to all my friends may even give it to my teacher for a class read. It had me laughing and it made me see how awful I was to some people and it helped me make mends with them. So now my life feels so much more positive.

I loved this book so much! It is so funny and entertaining and inspiring. It would have been really great in my teen years, but it is still helpful at age 20. Okay, no I'm not 20. But it is great. A must read, people. I will definitely be getting it for my little sister and cousins!

I got to read a pre-release of Josh Shipp's guide to "World Domination". I knew this would be a good book because Josh Shipp is known for his TOP NOTCH products. Seriously, this is a masterpiece. I couldn't put it down. It is drop dead hilarious with some of the best advice teens could ever get. Extremely well written and is bound to be a national best seller... and will be the forward thinking teen's manifesto for years to come. Josh is a stud!
