Great treatise on diversity,
This review is from: We Are All Weird (Hardcover)
I was so delighted to read this book. I live in Austin, where the motto is "Keep Austin Weird" -- and so I resonate quite powerfully with Seth's message here. It's a celebration of human diversity and a long-overdue rejection of the idea that "normal" or "mainstream" is any kind of ideal. Like a previous reviewer, I had previously integrated the sex-positive message that no one is normal -- and I'm thrilled to see that being spread to more corners of the world via business and marketing. Who cares about normal? Nobody's really as normal as they think (or try to be).
We have the tools now to connect with our dozens of tiny tribes, every one of them strange and new and interesting. It's time to quit hollering at the masses and start pow-wowing with the weird.

I just moved to Austin (5 days ago) after a wonderful and long career in advertising in New York City. Austin is "weird" (and proud). I am "weird" (and proud). And I came here to be me -- and live the full, rich, wonderful life that I have dreamed of all of my life--before the batteries in this little body run out!
IF YOU DON'T EVER READ ANOTHER THING--R-E-A-D THESE WONDERFUL WORDS FROM SETH AND REJOICE IN BEING UNIQUE---or "weird" if you prefer!
