ALL NEW Second Edition Coming in Print for the first time MAY 1st, 2017!

ALWAYS EAT LEFT HANDED is an entertainingly irreverent help-self book from Wall Street Journal bestselling author and occasional Georgetown University professor Rohit Bhargava filled with brutally honest secrets of success no one has ever dared to tell you.

Start smoking? Be a cross-dresser? Procrastinate more? Make people cry? Learn to yodel?

Reading just a few of these “secrets,” you might wonder if this book is serious. Indeed, it is. Through a bite-size collection of 15 quirky and insightful stories told in a highly readable non-boring style, you’ll learn how to:

  • Think faster on your feet when things go wrong
  • Be the type of person everyone wants to work with
  • Get better at starting (and ending) conversations
  • Find resilience after failure without losing optimism
  • Stand out by being the most approachable person in any room

For anyone sick of hearing you should do what you love, take more risks and make mistakes, this empowering book is like a desperately needed pair of noise-canceling headphones for uselessly obvious advice. Instead, Always Eat Left Handed offers a real world, no-nonsense playbook for getting ahead in school, work and life by doing exactly the opposite of what most people tell you. Starting, of course, with eating left handed.

Rohit Bhargava is a Wall Street Journal bestselling author of five books, occasional Georgetown University professor, and award-winning storyteller who has been invited to speak at events in 32 countries around the world. After spending 15 years working in corporate America and Australia, Rohit became an entrepreneur and is currently the founder of three successful businesses. He is based in Washington DC with his wife and two young boys, and believes that the most entertaining and impactful “job” he will ever have is being a great dad and teaching his sons to be kind when no one expects it, curious about the things others take for granted, and confident enough to change the world.
