About the Book.
Less than a year ago, Oobah Butler was living in a garden shed in London, struggling to pay rent and living on a diet of boiled eggs. It’s safe to say that he hadn’t achieved much with his life. Yet just a year on, on the back of three Vice documentaries that have been viewed over 150 million times, he’s won awards, been featured on TV all over the world and has been lauded by critics, commentators and serial achievers across the globe. How did everything turn for him? With an idea.
Since he came with the Shed at Dulwich, the world’s most famous restaurant that never existed, Oobah’s life has been completely transformed. Fantastic, of course, but it made no sense. How could something he’d invested such little care and emphasis in be so impactful? Could this be the key? So he asked himself the question: How would my life work out if I approached it with as little consideration and as much enjoyment as my fake restaurant? Can one achieve more in life if they cease to be so emotionally involved in their goals? In the modern age, has detachment become an unlikely bedfellow of success? This new book by Oobah Butler is based on a philosophy built around this very stupid thing he did.
