Total Blueprint for World Domination is a self-help book for teenagers. I suppose I am part of the target audience as I'm still in my teens... just about! I don't really tend to read non-fiction books a lot as I find they often go on for ages about nothing and I just skim them for the interesting parts. But I quite enjoyed this one and in part because it does not ramble on. It gets straight to the point and is short and sweet. It's a little boost of positivity.
This book doesn't tell you what you should be doing. It doesn't stick to one viewpoint and and consider all other options wrong. Rather, it tells you what you could do and lets the rest up to you. It's all about feeling empowered and realizing that when it comes down to it, you are really the one with control over your life. It definitely gets the point across that you cannot control other people and their actions but you can certainly control yourself! It's very open-ended and designed to make you think about all your options and decide which would be best for you personally given your own circumstances.
It's very well laid out in a clear and concise manner. It's basically done out in steps and is really easy to follow. Each step leads on to the next and it all builds up into your full plan. Total Blueprint for World Domination can be applied to massive decisions or tiny ones- it's up to you! It's well written and bursting with enthusiasm. Stockman draws on her own life experience at times which adds more meaning to the book as a whole. I certainly enjoyed reading this and like I said, it doesn't take much time to get through at all. I would recommend it for anyone who needs a little motivation for whatever it is.

Total Blueprint For World Domination by: Jolene Stockman (Review)
Posted by Erika
Review: if you have never read a non-fiction self-help book, I don’t know what you are waiting for. I have read quite a few in my teenage years and this one is actually my favorite out of them all. Geared to teens, TBFWD isn’t insulting, boring, or anything suggested not obtainable. The best part is that it almost sounds like Jolene is there next to you talking to you through the whole book. Easily a novel that many teens will be able to get into.
I want to share my favorite line from Total Blueprint for World Domination:
“There is no real world, just the one you create.”
I love how that one sentence, just strikes something in me and every time I read it, I feel more hopeful. It can be easy to think that the world around you is something that you can’t change, and obviously that is something people really need to reevaluate. Not to get all preachy or anything. I just think that if you want your life to be a certain way or have goals, you need to come up with a plan to reach those. I have and Jolene makes it really easy to set the steps out for you to get started.
Not only is there really good dialogue between Jolene and your conscience, there is also many examples from Celebrities like Lady Gaga to Einstein. Yup, guys Einstein is a celebrity in my book. Let’s face it guys and not hide from the fact that: High School Sucks. Some of you may disagree, or not understand where I am coming from. You don’t need to though, to understand there are ways to make any situation into a reality where you can be happy. It’s easy to feel helpless but Jolene will give you the tools, so that you never sink into despair again. The Total Blueprint for World Domination is an excellent novel for teens of any age and will get the ball rolling about your future. As scary as that sounds. Grab your copy today!
