Hot on the heels of her New York Times bestseller IfYou Have to Cry, Go Outside, Kelly Cutrone isback with another no-holds-barred book to awaken our souls and kick our assesinto gear. In Normal Gets You Nowhere, she invites us to get our freakon. History is full of successful, world-changing people who did not fitin. Think Nelson Mendela, Joan of Arc, EleanorRoosevelt, John Lennon. Instead of changing themselves to accommodate thestatus quo or what others thought they should be, these people hung a light ontheir differences – and changed humanity in the process. There’s already anarmy of supertalented uberfreakschanging the world–isn’t it time you joined them?

Kelly Cutrone is the CEO and founder of People's Revolution, theNew York Timesbestselling author ofIf You Have to Cry,Go Outside, a television personality, and mother to nine-year-old Ava.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Kelly is great, and her advice doesn't expire. There are a lot of 'self-help gurus' these days, but Kelly has been giving solid career advice since the beginning, and it still holds true today. Take it from a woman who has truly created her own success, normal gets your nowhere.

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.
