Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Drawing from his own experiences as a troubled youth, plus nearly a decade of motivational speaking to teen audiences, Shipp offers an unusually stimulating approach to making life decisions, rejecting bad choices, and nurturing a sense of self-identity. In his view, it is all about “dominating” one’s own self and world (without dominating those of others, which is evil) by identifying and dealing with teeming hordes of “villains”—which include Ghosts (i.e., self-imposed fears and limitations), Robots (who seek to replace individual paths with preprogrammed career expectations), and similarly metaphorical Ninjas, Zombies, Pirates, Vampires, and Puppies. Though he waxes platitudinous toward the end (“Never settle for good”; “You need to have a plan”; “Cool isn’t for sale”) his hip vocabulary, vivid imagery, and confrontational rhetoric (“In your face, but on your side,” as he repeatedly writes) should keep readers engaged, and may well prompt some slackers to get off the stick. Grades 8-11. --John Peters


“'Be the hero of your own story' gets a twenty-first-century makeover with candor, sound advice, and raw, real truisms you just can't duck-n-dodge. Simply put: If you don't choose to control your own world, then other people will call the shots for you.” -AMY JUSSEL, Executive Director of SHAPING YOUTH

"As a counselor who works with tweens, teens, and parents, I would definitely recommend this book. Josh writes in a way that connects with his teen audience. He offers solid advice and life lessons without being preachy or condescending. Worth the read for parents and kids alike."  -Julie Smith, Licensed Family Therapist

"Josh Shipp's book The Teen's Guide to World Domination is full of hilarious stories, great advice and countless life lessons which capture the heart and mind of a teenager helping him or her to navigate a path towards success." -Sean Covey, Author of "THE 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE TEENS"
