I'm proud to introduce to the world my latest book Dear Hannah: A Geek's Life in Self-Improvement. For my 14th birthday, Hannah gave me Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends and Influence People, which kicked off a life-long obsession with self-improvement. Over 16 years, I wrote 82 letters to Hannah describing every book, pop psych article, and method that I used—or abused. Dear Hannah is either a cautionary tale about self-improvement, or it is a filter for the 10% of self-help that may actually change your life.
I'm just now beginning the "Friends & Family" leg of my book promotion, with events in Austin and California. Please email me if you want to get in on these. Here's a video from the kick-off September 5th in Austin, TX:
I write mini-essays on Philosophistry. As of this post, there are 234 essays organized by subject, but I have plenty more to come.
I spend a lot of time working on books. The latest one coming up is Dear Hannah, which is a cautionary tale of self-improvement.
I write reviews and do social media, most of which you can access on Twitter @philipkd. If you want to keep up with all things Philip Dhingra, follow me on Twitter.
I no longer use Movable Type for blogging. I started with MT in 2002, when I started blogging. Now I roll my own PHP script, the same one I use for Philosophistry.
