A good friend recommended this book so I wanted to read it from cover to cover.... And i wanted o love it I hated every minute of it... I kept hoping the book would improve. I thought that I'd suddenly turn a corner with Kelly and realize that she had stopped being a self-indulgent, go against the grain just to create waves, name dropping, self important person. Sadly, that never happened and I breathed a huge sigh of relief when I finished the last page.

The major theme through this book is to c

I bought this book after watching Kelly Cutrone's show on Bravo. I admired her tough, no BS attitude but also how she also managed to be endearing at the same time. She seemed like a good role-model so I was excited to read her book to learn more about her but I mainly was interested in her career advice. However the first half of the book with Cutrone's memoirs was a little tough to get through. Most of the time it seemed more like she was bragging rather than "telling it like it is (or was)" w ...more

Soooo...leave the burbs, do a ton of drugs, sex and booze it up in NYC, create your own religion, talk shit yet take none, don't cry at work and be true to your own dreams. There...I just read the book to you. You're welcome.

For the record, my mom kicked ass in the 70s in corporate America so her advice and guidance has been much more useful than anything I read here. BTW...I had to read this for book club and I'd never heard of this woman prior to the selection.

My boss gave me a chapter from this book when I was having a hard time seeing eye-to-eye with a co-worker, who also happens to have a strong workplace personality. I read it on the train and came in the next morning breathless and excited about what I had read. My enthusiasm scored me major points with the boss, and she lent me the entire book the same day.

Cutrone is a bully. That's what really made me like this book, because - despite that - I like her. She's an unapologetic, vicious, caring, p

I decided to read this book because I've always had an interest in transitioning into publicity/PR and the book sounded like a great read for female professionals. I thought that, though I'm not necessarily interested in fashion, this would offer some solid career tips from someone that has seen it all. It did have a few tips here and there about being tough, but ultimately, it is titled and positioned incorrectly. It isn't about lessons for career women, but rather the author's memoir about how ...more

I thought this book was total crap. Kelly is not as smart as she thinks she is, and her "advice" -- like making her assistants wait until after everyone else has finished eating to have the leftovers-- is terrible. It's like "how to be a mean girl boss 101." She has a lot of half-baked spiritual beliefs, which are cobbled together from yoga, psychic readings, half-understood Native American beliefs, and watered-down second wave feminism. I found this book annoying, repetitive, and mostly just st ...more

Kelly Cutrone is the founder of People’s Revolution, a fashion PR firm based in New York City. I’ve been watching her show on Bravo, Kell On Earth, and I find her puzzling. Sometimes she comes across as a savvy, ballsy businesswoman, refusing to take any lip from anybody. But on the other hand, most of the time she appears to be erratic, flighty and more than a bit unhinged. I got her new book, hoping to learn more. I’m fascinated by anything relating to the fashion industry, so I thought it wou ...more

This book, which I read for my new book group, grew on me somewhat as I read. I'd never heard of the author or her company prior to borrowing the book. I can't relate to the author and her world, and I didn't find her writing (co-writing?) style very polished. However, there were some nuggets of wisdom and some relate-able areas. I thought the chapter on branding yourself was right-on, and I had to chuckle at the section on Donald Trump, given his current doings. I appreciate her passion. Some o ...more

Kelly Cutrone has appeared on the The Hills, The City and her own series Kell on Earth. She also runs People’s Evolution. If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You surprised me. I didn’t expect much but I really enjoyed some of the key messages of the book:

1. Believe in Yourself

2. Find and listen to your inner voice

3. Focus on building a Tribe

4. Work hard

5. Give back

Cutrone is unapologetic about the need to work hard and pay your dues to the extent that no

I'd say this review is pretty spoiler heavy. I guess.

I didn't know anything about Kelly Cutrone before reading this book. Okay, I knew a little, but only what had been told to me from watching her on Dr. Phil.

But, I knew nothing about this book going in. I thought it might be about tips for women going into the "man's workplace" or some crap like that. Similar to the book, Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office. So, I went expecting the same feelings I had after reading Nice Girls Don't Get the

Kelly Cutrone, as a judge on America's Next Top model, comes across a nasty piece of work. Sometimes her honesty is refreshing, but I think there's a fine line between refreshing and ice cold. She's not above taking a cheap shot in the pursuit of wit, and many of her comments have left a bad taste in my mouth.

So I don't know what made me think I would feel differently after reading her memoirs. I think the title grabbed me, and I wanted to be proven wrong; maybe there's something I'm missing abo

For the first half of this book, I planned to give it two stars at most. I was annoyed that Cutrone said she wasn't really that smart (you don't accomplish what she's accomplished by NOT being smart, even if it's not necessarily book smarts), and I was REALLY annoyed at the amount of time dedicated to her spiritual awakening (while reeling from drugs) and all the talk of the Universal Goddess and her spiritual guide. That's just not my thing.

But then came the focal point of the book: the chapter

I debated for a while about getting this book, but I'm so glad I did. When I first heard about this and eventually picked it up, I was expecting a how-to guide on succeeding in the world of business/PR/fashion, which are all ares of interest for me, especially the business and PR, so I bough it. I was a bit disappointed at the very beginning because she explicitly states that this is not a book on how to be a smart business woman. I thought, "well great, there goes $15".

Looking forward to this book for some time, I finally decided to cough up the twenty two dollars and get a hard copy. Ended up being disappointed with her less then professional advice, I felt as if this book were more of a memoir about things I wouldn't be comfortable bragging about.

The quotes and snippets I'd read before purchasing the book would have been enough (and less of a waste of my time, and money!)

This book comes across exactly like Kelly Cutrone, or what one would think Kelly Cutrone would come across in her book. Direct, self absorbed, and full of cliches. She grated on my nerves throughout the book, in fact I had to really push myself to finish without rolling my eyes every other chapter! Granted, some of the cliches were well said but these were few and far between the rest of the book.

I have always been a fan of "The Hills," and then Whitney Port's spinoff "The City." One of the characters who I loved the most was Kelly Cutrone. Her tell-it-like-it-is attitude and being a smart business woman was two of the things that I loved about her the most. It even made me love her even more when I started watching her Bravo show "Kell on Earth," and I found out that she was a single mother. Being a single mother who has her own business, I knew that this was a book that had to be on my ...more

Reading this book is like being unexpectedly invited to the It party of the season and somehow finding yourself in conversation with the It Girl of the party, the one everyone had raved about. During the conversation, the It Girl monopolizes most of the conversation, and you nod along and don't dare interject because what could you possibly have to say to top her stories of being part of the NYC 1980's scene? As she then goes on about her spirituality you start to wonder if she's high or drunk,

When I started watching "Kell on Earth" I was totally thinking that Kelly was my soul sister. She is the ballsy, in-your face New Yorker that I aspire to be while in New York (especially on subways and other places where assertiveness is required). Although I was expecting more of a tell-all from Kelly, I wasn't completely surprised that the PR Queen was strategic about the details of her personal life.

From seeing Kelly Cutrone on the hills, I love her.

None of this translates into the book which I definitely tried very hard to read but couldn't even bring myself to finish.

I have to admit, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a quick read, but definitely a book with a ton of information that can be used for anyone, even if you don't have a future in fashion, like me. She's definitely not the type of woman, nor author, to sugarcoat anything. When you're reading, you're reading the truth - about love, work, and life in general. According to Kelly, we're raised in a Disney type of world, where the woman waits for her prince charming to come and rescue her. It's not ...more

This book is FANTASTIC. I'm long overdue in reading it, and I loved every single page for Cutrone's honesty, wisdom and no-holds-barred approach to building a strong career and internal foundation. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a motivational read about life and business that comes from someone living her own path with her fair share of major traumas ("deaths" as she calls them). Not just for women either...

I saw Kelly Cutrone on Dr. Phil's show. I knew nothing about her until then, and even after seeing her on the show, I wasn't moved to buy her book until I saw it in a bookstore. After reading the flyleaf, I purchased the book, and I am enjoying it. However, I expected it to be more about lessons she's learned from her job as a publicist than a personal history. Nevertheless, it is a good read.

This book surprised me. Not because it was terribly well-written or life changing, but it does have some great advice for women. Especially those who aspire to be entrepreneurs or who hope to carve their own less-traditional path in life. I didn't agree with everything she said, but there are some useful tips for any woman who wants to succeed, even if they are told through the eyes of someone who holds a very sure and high opinion of herself.

“This is an important lesson to remember when you're having a bad day, a bad month, or a shitty year. Things will change: you won't feel this way forever. And anyway, sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your soul needs most. I believe you can't feel real joy unless you've felt heartache. You can't have a sense of victory unless you know what it means to fail. You can't know what it's like to feel holy until you know what it's like to feel really fucking evil. And you can't be birthed again until you've died.” 1888 likes
“This was when I learned that you have to give up your life as you know it to get a new one: that sometimes you need to let go of everything you're clinging to and start over, whether because you've outgrown it or because it's not working anymore, or because it was wrong for you in the first place.” 347 likes
