Praise for The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth
"This book is pure Brogan. Helpful, excited, practical and willing to challenge both the status quo and our deepest fears."
Seth Godin, author of We Are All Weird
"I wouldn′t have called myself a freak, but I see where Chris is going with this. Freaks unite! I′m one of you."
Steven Pressfield, author of The War of Art
"Chris′ madman enthusiasm for the newfangled art–life–business blur screams and punches right out of these pages, which read like a manifesto for a new class of weirdo makers."
Amanda Palmer, Piano and Ukulele Slayer
"Chris′s Freaks book is about being who you really are and the systems it takes to make that a success. If you′re happy not fitting in but want a big future, this is your book."
Anthony Robbins, entrepreneur, author, and Peak Performance Strategist
"Chris Brogan not only wrote the exact book I wanted to read, he wrote the book I wanted to write. But he did it better justice than I could′ve. Now, the freaks really will inherit the earth."
James Altucher, author of Choose Yourself!
