Are you thinking about getting a copy of The Freak Factor book? Check out these reviews from people who've already read it.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said “Our strength grows out of our weaknesses,” and that strikes at the heart of the book Dave wrote. His message reinforces the work that Gallup has done over the last decade: Leverage your strengths while appreciating and embracing your weaknesses. Or as Kinko’s founder Paul Orfalea says, “Like yourself, not despite your flaws and so-called deficits, but because of them.” The book is heavy on people, with pictures and profiles, who live this philosophy. This book is 178 pages of permission to be the person you have always wanted to be.
Dave Rendall has a radical prescription for chronic dissatisfaction: Stop working on your weaknesses and start amplifying them instead. The Freak Factor flips the cult of self-improvement on its head with stories of real people who have soared to success by embracing their uniqueness.

David Rendall reclaims the term “freak” for what it is – a powerful, game-changing competitive advantage in life and business. This book will change the way you think about being different, and show you how it’s the secret to turning around your career.
- Pam Slim, author of Escape from Cubicle Nation
The Freak Factor is an important idea, and David Rendall’s is a voice to be reckoned with. We should all look to our lives to see how we can accommodate rather than eliminate the freaks!
- Nick Morgan, author of Trust Me: Four Steps to Authenticity and Charisma
Everything you’ve read about weakness is wrong.... until now. This book will help you stop trying to be well-rounded and start excelling at what you always knew you were best at. Raise your freak flag and wave it with pride!
- Chris Guillebeau, author of The Art of Non-Conformity
Are you a freak? Yes, you are, if you want to be extraordinary. In this provocative book, David Rendall shows why being outstanding comes from first standing out.
- Sally Hogshead, author of Fascinate: Your 7 Triggers to Persuasion and Captivation
David Rendall boldly asserts and clearly articulates that the things that make us "different" are not problems we need to solve or disadvantages we need to eliminate. Rather he suggests that those things that make us "different" from others will often be the raw material of our lives that can provide us with our greatest sources of potential, advantage, effectiveness and joy.
David has certainly taken the raw uniqueness of his life and transformed into a sophisticated ability to communicate an important message in an interesting and entertaining manner. This book will make a significant contribution to the Strengths Movement as it helps individuals move from self-awareness and self-acceptance to personal amplification and more frequent opportunities for affiliation.
