"Kelsey′s book is a welcomed dose of realism in the current zeitgeist of counterproductive David vs Goliath thinking of the Malcolm Gladwell variety" (Elite Business, April 2015)
ARE YOU AN OUTSIDER?
This is a timely book from the bestselling author of What′s Stopping You?
Our culture celebrates outsiders while in reality slamming the door in their face. The modern world craves innovation while alienating original thinkers. It encourages creativity while shutting out all but a privileged few from individualistic expression. What a waste!
WHAT OUTSIDERS NEED: AN EDGE
Yet achieving great things as a genuine outsider is possible. Outsiders can find their own way succeeding without compromising their individuality. They just need to forge an edge.
The Outside Edge is the book for those that feel like they don′t belong the misfits, many with strong untapped talents and potential. It′s a recipe for positively directing their insecurity, awkwardness and role–confusion towards a meaningful future, shaped and pursued on their own terms.
The Outside Edge helps you to:
′This is not another quaint book about how outsiders have an edge. This is a subversive manual for how outsiders can carve an edge for themselves with hard work, creativity and the right mental framework′
Ryan Holiday, bestselling author of The Obstacle Is The Way
′This is an excellent read packed with both cautionary tales and optimistic insight, for anyone who′s ever felt on the periphery′
Helena Pozniak, life–skills writer for the Daily Telegraph, The Guardian and The Independent

I read this book sometimes agreeing with Kelsey but often not.
On the first page I decided he didn't really get what being an outsider is. Read more
This is a well put together book, which takes an interesting look at what it feels like not to belong, and how to reframe that in to something positive. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Don Panik
The clever thing about this book is that almost everyone believes they're an outsider.
We all think we're not in the 'it' crowd and feel on the edge. Read more
