Publisher's Summary

We Are All Weird is a celebration of choice, of treating different people differently and of embracing the notion that everyone deserves the dignity and respect that comes from being heard. The book calls for the end of "mass" and for the beginning of offering people more choices, more interests, and giving them more authority to operate in ways that reflect their own unique values.
For generations, marketers, industrialists, and politicians have tried to force us into little boxes, complying with their idea of what we should buy, use, or want. And in an industrial, mass-market driven world, this was efficient and it worked. But what we've learned in this new era is that mass limits our choice, because it succeeds through conformity. As Godin has identified, a new era of weirdness is upon us. People with more choices, more interests, and the power to do something about it are stepping forward and insisting that the world work in a different way. By enabling choice, we allow people to survive and thrive.

If you've ever done any serious work in the field of marketing I suspect, like me, you will find yourself nodding and smiling a lot at what is a hugely insightful yet simple work.

Seth Godin's take on find your niche

I don't know what I was expecting from this book, but it was something more than what I got. This on the surface appears to be another book on finding your marketing niche (in this case your weird), sadly there is no depth to it and that's disappointing. If you are looking at differentiation and finding your niche there are lots of better marketing books than this one. If you are a Godin fan you'll probably love it, if you want actionable advice... forget it.
