Blessed are those who read this bold and brilliant book and heed its call. Nordby passionately captures the heart and soul of creative change agents of the past, thereby giving us the inspiration and permission to be as wildly weird and courageously creative as we truly are, now. We weirdos need this book in order to appreciate that we come from a daring and determined lineage that is devoted not only to unleashing the personal soul, but also the global soul. If there's any time to be weird, it's now. And, Jacob Nordby is lighting the way for us all.
Blessed Are The Weird is a clarion call for those who stand outside traditional norms (whether externally, internally, or both) to rise up and boldly share our artistic expressions and passionate voices with the world. Jacob Nordby's words, heart, and bold commitment to positive change during these tumultuous times are needed now more than ever. I'm honored to call him a friend and brother on this path.

If this won't bother you, then don't hesitate to read this book. But if this is the kind of thing that will bother you, then it will probably REALLY bother you.
However if you have been truly weird from day 1 unable 2 fit or conform to society then you do not really need this book. You live it and you know the financial & life struggles of being weird.
I thought this book was going to be a celebration of the truly weird. Instead it gives examples of people with privilege trying to find themselves and needing permission to do so.
Examples of people who have friends/family/resources that need to feel comfortable with doing something else. The examples in this book are people with money who downsized or changed professions.
The author describes the "magic" that happens when you step into your weirdness or creative path but disregards all the privilege that brings that "magic" into your life.
If the author wanted to celebrate the truly weird and creative I suggest he talk to at least some actually creative & weird people without resources friends family to discover the actual creativity & weirdness that is required for them actually to survive.
Being weird is a lot more than not feeling comfy at your day job or sad about your unfulfilling millions and family that cares about yoing
Like I said, if you have resources and a stable life but want more than I guess this book is for you.
As a creative weird person from day 1 I can say this book really did not celebrate or bless me.
I read the whole thing, cover to cover, and loved it, which is rare for me. This is a wonderful and timely contribution to our changing landscape of thought and evolution. Of being co-creators of our world. Of bearing gifts passed through the ages, of rediscovering our latent magic, of stepping up to passion and purpose, to answering the call. A must-read for creatives. A call to the wild, a hearkening to get out there and live in our magic. I adored this book and feel as if I've made a friend: with a deeper oft-hidden version of myself that is a bit..."weird..." and with the writer himself whom is so utterly relatable, real, rugged and honest. And inspiring. Thank you, Jacob Nordby, for writing it. I do hope our wild horses cross in the wilds of this life where we can discuss all things journey, art, renaissance, magic, and strange. And if not, I'm glad to have read your book. What a great addition to our existing story. I feel as though an adventure has ended though, with the last page turned, and I'm back in a mundane world. Which means I must write into a new one. Love that, I feel charged up. Must read, folks.
For anyone struggling with the birth of ideas or the physical manifestation of their wildest dreams THIS is one of the most honest and approachable descriptions of the condition of Creator I have ever had the pleasure to experience...artist to entrepreneurs should...no must ....read this inspiring book!

I have read many books on my journey, a lot of them were good and some not so good but I can assure you that this book is different. In fact it is amazing! As an INFJ/HSP creative it sang out to my Soul and lit my whole Self up. It not only helped me to answer the what am I here for question but also the why do I stick my neck out question. Sometimes no words are big enough to do justice to something that is rather magnificent as indeed this book is. I can only suggest that you read it if you are ready for The Leap. Is it time for you? Are you ready? Do you need one final little push? Buy this book....and Jump!
I had come to terms with this about myself but Jacob Nordby's easy writing style, backed up with insightful quotes sealed the deal for me.
I have to say this is the book I wish I'd written because the author has hit on ideas, thoughts, feelings many of us 'outsiders' have - as well as those currently in a death grip fight with mundane lives or jobs while something inside whispers 'there must be more to this life?'
I felt a wrench when I turned the last page but now it's time to embark on the next adventure. Thanks for writing this book Jacob
And a long thank you to you as well.
