What if working like crazy to beat the competition did exactly the opposite, making you mediocre and more like the competition?
In today’s world of overabundant consumer choices and superfluous apps, upgrades, add-ons, and features, brands have become nearly identical, as their efforts to outdo one another have pushed them into a dizzying herd of indistinct options.
Youngme Moon identifies the outliers, the mavericks, the iconoclasts—the players who have thoughtfully rejected orthodoxy in favor of an approach that is more adventurous. Some are even “hostile,” almost daring you to buy what they are selling.
Using her original research on companies such as IKEA and Google, Moon will inspire you to be counterintuitive and meaningfully different—to rethink your business strategy, to stop conforming and start deviating, to stop emulating and start innovating. Because to stand out you must become the exception, not the rule.

Thoughtful and thought provoking
Delightfully written, I really enjoyed Moon's insights and style of story telling. Hr perspectives on brand techniques and styles are interesting, especially today when personal branding is something of which we're all supposed to be aware. She states from the beginning that this book isn't out to prescript solutions but to provoke thought and she succeeds. Wished she would have gone on for another 100 pages.
