Book Review: If You Have to Cry, Go Outside by Kelly Cutrone and Meredith Bryan
I saw a woman reading If You Have to Cry, Go Outside and Other Things Your Mother Never Told You while on the subway in New York and decided I wanted a copy for myself. I’ve always admired Kelly and her spunk which I saw through watching The Hills and The City. I’m a big cryer myself and I know I’ve made the stupid mistake of crying when I was a lot younger so when I saw the title of this book, I was immediately drawn to it.
Sadly, I was a bit disappointed upon reading the whole book (I read it in a few days) because I thought it would be full of career advice, which is what I’m looking for at the moment. It was more an autobiography of Kelly Cutrone. Not that it was bad. I do find Kelly interesting and I do admire how she has branded herself and how she conducts her PR business. I guess it was just a matter of having the wrong expectations when I picked up the book.
I don’t believe in a lot of the new age stuff she writes about (like picking the best things from different religions and making your own) and I have to admit I almost quit reading it altogether because she devoted a lot of space to this topic. But I did pick up some good tips in one of the last chapters so I’m pretty glad I finished it.
