Overview

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

Indie-cool motivational speaker Shipp, who bounced between foster homes as a kid, provides a funny, compassionate, and straight-talking blueprint for teens to achieve fulfillment personally, socially, and professionally. Shipp is quick to explain that "world domination" is really about finding satisfaction through hard work and self-awareness. But it's easier said than done, and Shipp dedicates chapters to various enemies such as ghosts (which "show up in your head in the form of painful memories, past mistakes, hurtful words, and lies"), ninjas, pirates, and vampires (e.g., addictions and "negative influencers"). Shipp's fresh and honest approach should make sense to teens seeking guidance and avoids feeling preachy or heavy-handed. Ages 13–17. (Aug.)
