Publisher's Summary

The Internet isn't all cat videos. There's also Felicia Day - violinist, filmmaker, Internet entrepreneur, compulsive gamer, and former lonely homeschooled girl who overcame her isolated childhood to become the ruler of a new world...or at least semi-influential in the world of Internet geeks and Goodreads book clubs.
After growing up in the South, where she was 'homeschooled for hippie reasons', Felicia moved to Hollywood to pursue her dream of becoming an actress and was immediately typecast as a crazy cat-lady secretary.
But Felicia's misadventures in Hollywood led her to produce her own web series, own her own production company, and become an Internet star.
Felicia's short-ish life and her rags-to-riches rise to Internet fame launched her career as one of the most influential creators in new media. Now Felicia's strange world is filled with thoughts on creativity, video games, and a dash of mild feminist activism - just like her memoir.
Hilarious and inspirational, You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is proof that everyone should embrace what makes them different and be brave enough to share it with the world because anything is possible now - even for a digital misfit.

Critic Reviews

"Everything Felicia creates seems to succeed. This book should be no different. It's a great read - far from 'horrible' and worth every 'Penny'. See what I did there? It's a play on...never mind." (Neil Patrick Harris, author of Choose Your Own Autobiography and Felicia’s costar in Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog)
"Reading Felicia Day's memoir is like going on a road trip with an old friend you never knew you had. This is the perfect book to prove you aren't the only misfit in the world, and to remind you that that's a very good thing." (Jenny Lawson, author of Let's Pretend This Never Happened)
"It's hard to keep up with Felicia Day. She's an actress, a gamer, a screenwriter, a songwriter, a producer, a director, a webmaster, a costumer, and queen of the geek girls. It's hard to imagine where such a prodigy could have come from. Wonder no longer. Felicia tells all... well, most... well, some... in her new book. Reading this is like sitting down and having dinner with her, and hearing the story of her life between the clam chowder and the cheesecake. I can't imagine a more charming or amusing dinner companion. Felicia is a lot of fun, and so is her book." (George R. R. Martin)
"I have personal heroes, and Felicia Day is one of them... She’s more than a self-made woman - I sometimes think she’s not a human woman, that she willed herself into existence, before willing the world to make a place for this new, unfathomable creation. Felicia is stronger than I am, and stranger than I am, and she double-majored in math and violin. I love her for all these things. I love this book because it relates, hilariously and occasionally harrowingly, how she came - or brought herself - to be this singular (though double-majored) creature" (Joss Whedon)

If I didn't love her before I for sure do now, she is a brilliant woman.

A weirdly human deja-vu

I've enjoyed Felicias work for a while now, though I'm definitely late to the party compared to fans of hers from back when the Guild started and such.
But despite what the haters say, she is both a genuine geek from what I can tell as well as a fantastic ambassador and voice for both geeks and in a way a generation heavy with geekdom.
I enjoyed her reading of this book which itself was a nice and at times harsh insight into the creative world - nothing that most of us have never heard but here it was real and oddly normal without the melodrama one often hears/sees with stories about the rise and fall of the famous and such.
As someone in India where this culture and mindset is definitely still nascent, much of her struggle and especially with regard to peoples's attitudes and the like hit home a lot. It was also a nice sober reminder and yet retained a sense of hope and patience and staying true to your vision/dreams even when they evolve that I appreciated.

Funny and charming and nerdy :)

I was kind of tangentially aware of Felicia Day's work but plan to seek more of it out after listening to this. Her story is engaging and funny and she does a fantastic job reading it. If you are in anyway at all interested in nerd culture or just enjoy a laugh you will probably get something out of this book. I appreciate that she is not at all apologetic about being a high achiever but is also honest about her anxiety.

It's also quite touching in places - there's a bit with a fan that made me tear up a bit. The gamergate chapter is also really interesting and a thoughtful examination of that ridiculous phenomenon.

I was enjoying it so much, that I listened to it all in one day - so, yes, I recommend this book.

The pdf is available but not, apparently, on my phone.

Funny, inspiring, honest and brilliant

I am not an obsessive gamer, and I only knew of Felicia through shows like Buffy and Supernatural. But you don't need to be a gamer to appreciate what she has to say - it's a witty and brave account of how to CREATE and be true to who you are. Everyone should read / listen to this! You're awesome Felicia! Now I'm off to watch The Guild :D
