The title and illustrations may give the impression to some the book is flippant but the ideas in it show a very intelligent man who has refined his ideas and how to communicate them over a long period. Everything in this book has been carefully considered and it puts the one-idea rambling business-y books to shame. Legitimately laugh out loud funny in places both in whit and the very bold moves by the author in his career in such a conservative organisation. Very engaging read.
Who is it for? Well anyone who questions the madness they sometimes see around them and particularly those with a creative streak for which is certainly will do as the title suggests and help them survive with grace. Anyone with a high degree of openness will do well with it. Though centred on the author's experiences at Hallmark there are some very philosophical lessons for the wider sphere of life. The story he writes to close the book about God and the blank canvas we all have is particularly poignant and stays with me.
