About The Book
The Absurdity of Doing You is a call-to-action that invites readers to acknowledge ourselves as a sovereign human being existing in a largely illusory world. Everything in life and society coaxes us to be anything but ourselves. This book suggests unapologetically that we do it anyway and in the most meaningful and rebellious manner. Because life isn’t so much about achieving something as it is about the learning, unlearning, and evolution of the soul; a progression towards leaving a unique mark on humanity. This is our playbook.
