Evil Plans: Having Fun on the Road to World Domination (Hugh MacLeod)
This book is one of my all-time favorites. A short read that packs a lot of punch, this book explains that it has never been easier to escape the rat race, do work that really matters, and still earn a great living. And once your Evil Plan really gets rolling, it will start you on the road to world domination... or at least domination of your carefully chosen little corner of the world. Highly recommend!
