Publisher's Summary

An honest, sharp-witted, practical guide to help you get and keep the job you want - from an outsider whose been there and done it, a woman who went from being a broke, divorced college dropout to running some of the biggest websites in the world.
Jennifer Romolini started her career as an awkward 27-year-old misfit, navigated her way through New York media, and became a boss - an editor in chief, an editorial director, and a vice president - all within little more than a decade. Her book, Weird in a World That's Not, asserts that being outside the norm and achieving real, high-level success are not mutually exclusive, even if the perception of the business world often seems otherwise, even if it seems like only office-politicking extroverts are set up for reward.
Part career memoir, part real-world guide, Weird in a World That's Not offers relatable advice on how to achieve your dreams, even when the odds seem stacked against you. Romolini helps you face down your fears, find a career that's right for you, and get and keep a job. She tackles practical issues and offers empathetic, clear-cut answers to important questions:

How do I navigate the awkwardness of networking?
How do I deal with intense office politics?
How do I leave my crappy job?
How do I learn how to be a boss not just a #boss?
And, most importantly: How do I do all this and stay true to who I really am?

Authentic, funny, and moving, Weird in a World That's Not will help you tap in to your inner tenacity and find your path, no matter how offbeat you are.

Women's Career Guide

I totally missed that this book is for women. As a man who has struggled with my own share of career ups and downs, the book was still helpful. Toward the beginning there is a bit too much story telling without interpreting what lessons we should be learning from these stories. Toward the end the author gets into bullet points for success and synthesizing takeaway lessons.

Romolini has a really entertaining story that contains gems of insight and inspiration. I found myself piecing together the timelines in my mind and wanting to know more about her career trajectory than the book would tell me. She is raw and vulnerable and gives her audience person to be messy and flawed and admit mistakes.

Em Eldridge rocks the performance of this book. She tells the story with the pride, humility and ambivalence that I would only expect from the original author. I remember checking a couple of times to confirm that it wasn't the author herself reading this autobiography.

A Career Guide that Delivers

Jennifer Romolini delivers on her promise of a career guide for those of us that don't fit the more traditional business / motivational books out there. Her book is both personal and practical. The narration by Em Eldridge is excellent as well.
