I Don’t Want to Be Normal

My buddy Ben Casnocha had his book My Start-Up Life: What a (Very) Young CEO Learned on His Journey Through Silicon Valley reviewed in the NY Times today by Harry Hurt III.  Ben told me about this last week and is justifiably excited.

One of my favorite lines from Ben is “I don’t want to be normal.  I want to be something else.”  Hurt picks it as the theme of his review and does a great job capturing the essence of the book.

I’ve never wanted to be normal either and I love having friends who aren’t.
