Editorial Reviews


Paul S. Boynton - author of Begin with Yes
I haven't finished this book yet, but I felt the need to put "Blessed Are The Weird" down for a minute and share a few preliminary thoughts. There is something familiar about Nordby's words - not because I have heard them before but because they feel so authentic and honest - it's as if a part of me is being awakened and I feel this is as much my story as it is Jacob's. If you are reading these words, I suspect this book is for you too. Although it may not resonate with everyone if you are or long to pursue a creative, soul-filled and soulful life, this book will touch you in a thousand beautiful and heart opening ways. I can imagine sitting around the campfire listening to Jacob Nordby tell of his journey and our collective journey. This is not a book you'll read once, enjoy and then forget. Rather it will be a book you will want to keep in your briefcase or backpack to read and share. There are laugh out loud moments and other times when you find yourself with watery eyes. Most of all you will deeply feel that you are on the right path, that you belong  and that many of those you'll meet along the way are from your tribe. Now back to the book!

Oriah "Mountain Dreamer" House - author of The Invitation
In Jacob Nordby I find a faithful mystic who knows what we are rarely told: that we are here not only to be embodied souls, but to live an ensouled life, a life guided by our deepest longings. Many nod in enthusiastic agreement but are afraid to lead the messy, magnificent and uncertain life to which we are called. Keep a copy of Blessed are the Weird nearby. It will remind us of that which we already know but too easily forget. It will en-courage us to be weird and brave and whole." 

Scott Stabile - author Big Love
Few writers make me want to shout Hallelujah more than Jacob Nordby. His raw, brilliant Blessed Are the Weird is filled with many such moments of heart-opening resonance and soul-shaking inspiration. Preach, brother, preach! Jacob writes to that deep place within us all that is wild and free, unencumbered by the mandates of a too-normal world. He invites us to embrace our inner-freak, and he shows us how to do it. An unexpected, delightful surprise to the book was the historical context Jacob offered to the band of artsy misfits that make up his most famous piece of writing -- the poets, writers, painters and troubadours. Blessed Are the Weird challenges, educates, entertains and, most importantly to me, inspires each of us to be who we are, as truthfully as possible, however that looks and feels. This book is a powerful, unwavering manifesto for freedom more than anything else. And who among us doesn't want to be free?

Chris Grosso, author of Indie Spiritualist and Everything Mind
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.

Sera Beak - author of Red Hot and Holy: A Heretic's Love Story

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.
