Embrace This Book!

Whether you’re already a fan of Felicia Day or not, this book is sure to be a delight - the audiobook especially so, thanks to the author’s engaging performance as reader. In fact, if you’re torn between the physical book and the audiobook, I highly suggest opting for the audiobook. It comes with a 42-page printable PDF of activities and illustrations referenced throughout the book, and it is suggested that you keep a notebook handy for some exercises.
So, what exactly is this book? It’s an enthusiastic guide to exploring your creative side, not being bogged down by self-doubt or criticism, feeling proud of the things you make, and never giving up. And it’s read so incredibly enthusiastically, that it makes you want to get out there and do!
I myself went straight through without actually doing the activities/exercises, knowing that I will be giving this a second listen, at which time I will be doing them. But I could even see myself giving it further listens down the road, as its whole approach is like a friend you can turn to when you’re in a creative rut.
The author’s narrative style is casual, often comical, and endlessly charming, and the information she conveys is well-researched, expertly assembled, and endlessly helpful at sparking (and maintaining) creativity, and feeling good about yourself. It’s clear that she put a lot of time, effort, and heart into this book, and I cannot imagine it being any better than it is.

Self help for embracing your weirdness

I say this lovingly because I was *smitten* with this book right from the introduction. This journal + quest + finding yourself journey is a MUST for anyone looking for the next step in life, the next "how do I start" mission, the next, " I really want to..." - if you are stuck, not sure where to begin or plague yourself with self doubt... stop it! Pick up this book or do the audio, because Felicia is hilarious and I could listen to her all day and now I want to be her bff even more, and stop beating yourself up! EMBRACE YOUR WEIRD YA WEIRDO and go forth into the world knowing you are awesome and whatever it is that you want to do next, is needed. I loved this book even if I didn't qpply all the excercises now, I know I will refer to this one often! This is the ultimate self help book served up nerd style. You will not regret!

disapointed

I head this book through audible, where it was read by Felicia her self, and that might have influenced my opinion.

This is a book where Felicia Day is rambling on and regurgitating motivational posters and self-help ideas. I got halfway through the book, and I felt that the amount of original thoughts was to low to have paid the full price for this book.

I loved "you are never wierd on the internet" but I don't like this one

New fan of this author

Felicia Day, previously unknown to me (sorry!), is a comedic and creative genius. What a fun audio book. Now I need to listen to it again, PDF in hand this time. Great ideas. Inspiring and encouraging. And I’d pay money to see her do stand-up. Hilarious.

This!

Such a fabulous, beautifully written (and read) book. The tips and exercises along with the author's personal experiences make this book helpful, and I felt like a friend was sitting next to me saying "you got this!... but you gotta start."
Glad I decided to buy the book in print, too!
Enough review, I gotta go get weird.

Great, but the audiobook isn’t ideal.

As much as I love Felicia Day’s frenetic narration and enthusiasm, this is a workbook and the pdf is necessary if you don’t have the paperback. It’s not the sort of book you listen to while driving or at the gym, so it really makes more sense to read a hard copy.

still looking for pearls..

sort of like someone feeding pearls to a cow, then trying to find them amidst all the poop.. some fun, some bull, but over all not really worth the time...sorry! And the performance was, well, annoying at best..

i just can't

the narration is so appallingly obnoxiously cheerful and positive that I can't even stomach the first 10 minutes. if there's good information/ exercises in here I'll never know and that's ok with me.
