Daniel Pink’s “Johnny Bunko”

image We were blown away with Johnny Bunko by Daniel Pink. It is absolutely the best career advice we’ve ever seen. It should be required reading for every college freshman and career changer.

Daniel was kind enough to send 10 autographed books our way, which we gave away to some lucky winners.

The Adventures of Johnny Bunko is America’s first business book in manga and the last career guide you’ll ever need.

The book, which you can read in an hour, tells the story of Johnny Bunko, a beleaguered Everyman toiling away at the Boggs Corp.

One night Johnny meets Diana, a magical and butt-kicking adviser who teaches Johnny — and you — the six lessons of satisfying, productive careers:

  1. There is no plan.
  2. Think strengths, not weaknesses
  3. It’s not about you.
  4. Persistence trumps talent.
  5. Make excellent mistakes
  6. Leave an imprint.

P.S. Kudos to Daniel for perfect word of mouth execution: blog, twitter, viral video, free excerpts, and live meetups.

Congratulations to our contest winners: Derrick L Woods Sr., Jon Burg, Linda George, Torley, David Emmons, Simon Young, Candy Lynn, Tim Walker, Dave Weinberg, and Nikki Slaughter.

And thanks to everyone for the word of mouth!
