Everyone's Advice Is Wrong . . . Including Mine

Alexander Bachuwa escaped the hypnotic spell that a cubicle career had cast on his life, and he put together a guide to liberate others from their daily monotony.

The first part recounts the incorrigible entrepreneur’s journey from college, to law school, to business school, to Dubai, to Shanghai, to Shanghai again, to General Motors, to being fired eighty days later. Then it recounts his daring escape from this circle of monotonous work.

The second part organizes all of Bachuwa’s failures and lessons learned into a tidy list of ten steps to help the disillusioned break free. He demonstrates the importance of travel, mental tenacity, physical toughness, persistence, and commitment.

The book is timely, humorous, intellectual, practical, blunt, and—for you—wrong. But the point is to follow your own aspirations, as grandiose as they may or may not be. No one can tell you how to succeed. Living life is the only way to figure that out. But you have to get in the game and roll the dice, get out of the cubicle and into the world.
