I won this book on the Goodreads Giveaways.

This book gives some good advice to people looking for a career change. It lays it all out in matter-of-fact kind of way and helps people realize their goals. The cartoons in the book were a mix of insightful and hilarious.

There were some problems with the book though. First, based on the title, I expected to be a bit more humorous than it was. It is actually a fairly serious advice book under a funny title. The second was that it seems to be a bit dis-jointed at times, as it jumps from topic to topic in no particular order.

Also, some of the advice I couldn't get behind. MacLoed states that if your boss isn't letting you work on your Evil Plan, then you should quit. Later on in the book he tells of a girl named Cindi who did just that, by going to live back home with her mom and taking a small job while working on her Evil Plan: however, he did not address what people should do if they simply cannot leave their job or take a job for less money while they are working on their Plan.

If you are looking for a new job or how to make some money doing something you love, then this is a good book to read.
