It started with the “How to Be Interesting” post on Forbes.com that went viral, attracting over 1.4 million viewers so far, with tens of thousands liking, linking, and tweeting the article.

It’s more vital than hustle or education, more important than good networking. It’s a core attribute that draws people toward each other, and greases the wheels of love and commerce and politics. From that point, I noodled out what it meant to be interesting: and those ideas are now this book.
