Normal?

Who wants to be that?

When Kelly Cutrone''s first book,If You Haveto Cry, Go Outside, was first published, youngpeople flocked to this new voice-finally,someone was telling it like it is, in languagethey spoke. It quickly became aNew YorkTimesbestseller, and fashion publicist KellyCutrone became more than a personality,she became a beloved guru, mentor, andfairy godmother.

Now she''s back with another no-holds-barredbook to awaken our souls and kick our assesinto gear. WithNormal Gets You Nowhere,she invites us to get our freak on. History isfull of successful, world-changing people whodid not fit in. Think Nelson Mandela, Joanof Arc, Eleanor Roosevelt, Amelia Earhart,John Lennon, and Rosa Parks. Instead ofchanging themselves to accommodate thestatus quo or what others thought they shouldbe, these people hung a light on their differences-and changed humanity in the process.

"I know you don''t feel normal, so why areyou trying to act it and prove to everyone youare?" Cutrone says. So much of what we sayor don''t say, and what we do or don''t do, isdictated by what others have told us, or whatpeople may think of us. This is not how weshould be living, by measuring ourselvesagainst the mundane.

An invitation to rethink who you are, what youvalue, and what you want from life,NormalGets You Nowheregoes beyond how to reinventyourself and create your own brand, andinvestigates what it means to live in this worldas a tuned-in, caring individual with a passionfor making a difference. There''s already anarmy of super talented uberfreaks changingthe world-isn''t it time you joined them?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This Book got me Nowhere I'm proud to say that out of the myriad of books I've read, there have only been 3 I've never been able to finish. This novel is the third. I even read about about Cutrone to see if I understood more about her and her successes I may 'get' the book more. Nope. Lent to me by someone at work, I had to return it unread. First of all, I am NOT a reader of self-help, but even if I was, I didn't consider it to be helpful in any way. I found Cutrone's ideals to be arrogant and WAY too feministic , which bothered me big time. Her views on religion and holidays I can somewhat understand but not the fact that we should instead be worshipping the Divine Mother, or whatever she called it. I am a self admitted athiest, but it pissed me off that she disses religion but then preaches that we should all be kissing the Divine Mother's butt. What's the difference Kelly? It's religion, isn't it? What makes yours so much better? I literally only read this book in the bathroom, which seems appropriate for the kind of tripe it is. I got about 1/2 way through before I just couldn't take it anymore.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from yes yes yes! Kelly Cutrone does it again. I really enjoyed reading this book. Kelly has verbalized all I have ever thought about mainstream living. Her fresh take on life, work, relationships and everything in between is the wake up call so many people need. Her main message is have fun, life is great! Do yourself a favour, pick up a copy of this book!
