"James Victore is a dangerous man. His ideas on optimizing your creativity, doing wow work and building a life that inspires will devastate your limits. And show you how to win. Read this book fast."
-Robin Sharma, #1 bestselling author of The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

Begin before you're ready.

Renowned designer and professional hell-raiser James Victore wants to drag you off your couch and throw you headfirst into a life of bold creativity. He'll guide you through all the twists, trials, and triumphs of starting your creative career, from finding your voice to picking the right moment to start a project (hint: It's now).

Bring your biggest, craziest, most revolutionary ideas, and he will give you the kick in the pants you need to make them real. No matter what industry or medium you work in, this book will help you live, work, and create freely and fearlessly.

Here are some dangerous ideas:
* The things that made you weird as a kid make you great today.
* Work is serious play.
* Your ego can't dance.
* The struggle is everything.
* Freedom is something you take.
* There ain't no rules.

Take a risk. Try them out. Live dangerously.

More praise for Feck Perfuction:

"In James Victore's new book, he unequivocally proves why he is the master he is. In every chapter, he challenges and inspires the reader to reach for more, to try harder and to create our best selves. It is a magnificent and momentous experience. (All true)."
-Debbie Millman, Host Design Matters

"James Victore got famous creating tough posters that shook me to the core. He now does the same using the written word. To you."
-Stefan Sagmeister, designer

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Packed with no-nonsense, motivational messages on creative courage and the human condition, he celebrates authenticity and 'weirdness' as a tool to be used for success. The book's six chapters - 'Voice', 'Fear', 'Start', 'Action', 'Habits' and 'Purpose' - are split into further sub-chapters with titles such as 'You, the reluctant hero' and 'Have a damn opinion'. Each includes a short passage, drawing insight from psychology, philosophy and lessons from Victore's design career. Bold statements are re-emphasised in sketches and image play throughout the book. This book acts as a great instigator, offering a not-so gentle push to kickstart creative projects." -- eye magazine
"Feck Perfection is an entertaining and occasionally anarchic self-help book aimed at creatives, featuring advice on everything from how to get started in your career to finding your own unique creative voice and why - as the title suggests - we should stop seeking perfection." -- Creative Review
"Designer, illustrator and self-proclaimed professional hellraiser, James Victore delivers a manifesto of sorts in Feck Perfuction: Dangerous Ideas on the Business of Life (Chronicle Books) with 80 bite-sized chapters of suggestions to love yourself and embrace your inner kook. Both rousing and soothing." -- Irish Tatler
