We Are All Weird (the book)
We've lived with mass all our lives, and now it's gone. What are you going to do about it?
How much longer will we isolate and denigrate people because they don't fit our mass-market definition of the way people should choose to act?

Jacqueline Novogratz' review
(click on her picture to visit the Acumen Fund)
Seth Godin's latest book We Are All Weird is a song of freedom, an exuberant manifesto with the richness of choice that comes with wealth, the markets, the internet, our increasing connection with one another across the globe. He argues that the era of mass marketing is over (thankfully) and that as humans we seek not just to consume but to "connect," and therefore we find those who love what we love and, when it works best, create or join "tribes." We are allowed, indeed, encouraged to be individuals, to specialize rather than fit in or be "normal" and this is where richness begins. As Seth says, "Stuff is not the point." Connection, choice, pursuing what we love is.
Seth has advised the organization I founded, Acumen Fund, for many years. He constantly reminds us to be unafraid to focus on a small group of believers who make the choice to opt-in; and I can see that lesson elucidated brilliantly in We Are All Weird. We have the extraordinary luxury of choice and, for the most part, of doing what we want to do. How we use that choice to make the lives of others around us the richer for being connected to us is critical to Seth's evolving understanding of marketing and creating systems that release rather than stifle our energies-regardless of who we are, where we live, or what language we may speak. Read this book slowly and read it again for the lessons are rich and wise. I couldn't feel prouder to be a part of Seth's tribe.

If you read the book, share your thoughts...
"This is a book about giving a damn. It's about caring about what you do and (as importantly) who you do it for. Professional apathy is a relic of a dead era and, as Seth teaches brilliantly, a mentality you cling to at great peril. Everyone with a pulse and a paycheque should be living We Are All Weird."
--Chris Taylor, Founder of ActionableBooks.com
"This book will resonate with anyone who wants to lead a tribe, be authentic, dance to the beat of their own music and make a difference in the world. If your inner critic (the resistance) has been telling you that you are not enough, your work is not good enough and who do you think you are to make a difference, then buy this book. Let your freak flag fly high!"
--Sherold Barr, Master Coach + Freedom Fighter
"Seth has done it again. Open this book to almost any page. Read it, and change your thinking, your work, your life, or better express your art. Weird how he does this, isn't it?"

This is not the front cover
Sure, it looks like the front cover, but the front cover (the real one) is printed on the other side. Be sure to flip it over if you buy the limited edition hardcover.
This is the actual front cover
It's hidden underneath the fake front cover, the one that I had to use to get past the people who didn't understand.
