I just finished listening to Weird in a World That’s Not by Jennifer Romolini. She takes you from her being a misfit in high school to college experiences, all the way through a meandering path to high-tech start-up/Brooklyn/kids/mom/psychics nivana.

It’s a quick read (listen), and there is plenty of entertaining stories and advice (mostly for younger folks), but my main takeaway is: this is an refreshing book, sprinkled with feminism, neurodiversity, classism, poverty usually sanitized from business manuscripts.

I’ve read lotsa business books, and memoirs often have a “be yourself” theme. But in Romolini’s, it’s more refreshingly and candidly presented than I’ve read before. It convinced me there’s hope. Why can’t more business books be like this?
