Social values tell us it's more important to be useful than it is to be ourselves. If we decide that our priority is being who we are, does it mean we'll be at odds with society? Not necessarily. 'The Willing Misfit' asserts that we can express our true selves and yet lead a healthy, satisfying life alongside our social compatriots. More
If you've grown up experiencing the world through social values, your life, and everything in it, are products of somebody else's ideas. Laying aside the true expression of self has allowed you to fit in, but if your aim is to be honest with yourself, you cannot carry on in this direction. 'The Willing Misfit' examines how you can find your own set of values through honesty, and through integrity of thought and action. It offers tools that help to discover what it is to think for yourself, rather than depending on social logic, and best of all, it prompts and encourages you along a path of your own choosing… to reveal your own true selfhood.

OMG!A Book to read and reread, memorize and learn from. Derek puts in words those sneaky suspicions that we've all had about our life not being what it was meant to be. This book could not have come at a better time in my life! Thank you Derek!
