What I've Read - The Adventures of Johnny Bunko - the first American manga career/advice guide.

Comic books and career/life advice? Sold. Fun, quick read. Good advice. Entertaining.

Author Dan Pink's site:
"Meet Johnny Bunko. He’s probably a lot like you. He did what everybody – parents, teachers, counselors -- told him to do. But now, stuck at a dead-end job, he’s begun to suspect that what he thought he knew is just plain wrong. One bizarre night, Johnny meets Diana, the unlikeliest career advisor he's ever seen. Part Cameron Diaz, part Barbara Eden, she reveals to Johnny the six essential lessons for thriving in the world of work

The Adventures of Johnny Bunko is America’s first business book in the Japanese comic format known as manga – and the last career guide you’ll ever need."


*Updated* with the points from the book I personally need to remember - "There is no plan" [not quite 'There is no spoon' but still...] and "Persistence trumps talent."

YouTube Trailer for the book. [Which is a brilliant idea, btw. A trailer for a book.]
