The Art of Living Other People's Lives

The Art of Living Other People's Lives

Stories, Confessions, and Memorable Mistakes

“Greg Dybec is the quirky, neurotic, funny little brother I never had. The Art of Living Other People’s Lives is a terrific collection of relatable, hilarious stories.”
— Jen Mann, New York Times bestselling author of People I Want to Punch in the Throat


When he isn’t responsible for pleasing tens of millions of online readers a month as the managing editor of Elite Daily, Greg Dybec worries about rent, sex, love, family, and–the most millennial topic of them all–a desire to leave a legacy. In The Art of Living Other People’s Lives, Greg delivers a funny, brash, insightful collection of stories on becoming a pick-up artist to get over an ex-girlfriend, late-night adventures with his Uber drivers, a writing gig about men’s underwear, and so much more.


Whether he’s learning to hashtag from his tech-savvy mom, pestering Mark Cuban for life advice, or eavesdropping on strangers for story ideas, Greg takes readers on a hilariously neurotic and self-analytical journey that explores the struggle of balancing his plugged-in persona with his real-world self. Along the way, he–and you–might discover that life is a whole lot simpler online.
