Using figures like Jane Jacobs, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Edward Said, Guy Debord and Hannah Arendt as guides, Merrifield shows us how to resist bureaucracy and authority and embrace a liberated life where passions guide you.

Andy Merrifield shows us how the many spheres of our lives—work, knowledge, home, politics—have fallen into the hands of box tickers, bean counters and pedants. In response, he corrals a team of independent thinkers, wayward poets, dabblers and square pegs who challenge accepted wisdom. Such figures as Charles Baudelaire, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Edward Said, Guy Debord, Hannah Arendt and Jane Jacobs show us the way.

As we will see, the amateur takes risks, thinks the unthinkable, seeks independence—and changes the world. The Amateur is a passionate manifesto for the liberated life, one that questions authority and reclaims the iconoclast as a radical hero of our times.
