ON BEING AWESOME A Unified Theory of How Not to Suck

by | Read by Nick Riggle

Contemporary Culture • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Southern California philosopher and rollerblader Nick Riggle has a hip, unfiltered way of writing and speaking that makes you like him right away. Narrating in a soft and intimate register, he sounds like he's reading but is so sincere and earnest that this doesn't hinder his connection with his listeners one bit. He has a rich knowledge of art and social trends and all the shifts we've witnessed in American culture. (When did we start high-fiving?) He says that by seeking to be awesome, we feed the hope that we can create a society that is more imaginative, creative, and communal. Infused with his interest in aesthetics and ethics, and his entertaining personal vibe, his book compellingly argues that working on your awesomeness will help create the "free, just, and equal society we all aspire to."
