A Unicorn in a World of Donkeys
A Unicorn in a World of Donkeys: A Guide to Life for All the Exceptional, Excellent Misfits Out There | Mia Michaels
5 posts | 2 read
An empowerment manifesto for creatives, misfits, innovators, and disruptors from the star of So You Think You Can Dance and creator of Broadway's Finding Neverland A Unicorn in a World of Donkeys offers a playbook for living a creative and authentic life. Using her own story as a launching spot, and creative quizzes, charts, and lists to engage the reader in an interactive journey, Mia Michaels explores the experience of the unicorn in a world of donkeys, a world where fitting in, pleasing others, following rules, and maintaining norms-no matter how messed up those norms are-is the only acceptable path. She acknowledges the struggles of the unicorn life-loneliness, ridicule, being misunderstood and undervalued-and goes on encourage readers to reframe the unicorn life the way she has, as essential to a life of brilliance.

Soooo I guess I must be a donkey! Sorry y‘all I bailed about half way through. The author seems to have a problem with extroverts ( I‘m not one by the way, definitely an introvert). She‘s constantly saying in the book we‘re suppose to be uncomfortable All the time. It‘s as if she‘s saying if you‘re comfortable you‘re lazy. Look lady I have anxiety I‘m already more uncomfortable than I should be. This book might be for some but it‘s not for me.

LauraJ Useful review! Thanks!! 11mo

I totally bailed!! I guess I‘m more a donkey.. I thought some of her ideas were valid, but it‘s ok to be comfortable and not always make yourself uncomfortable.. guess I‘ll just keep living my half donkey half unicorn life!
