An empowerment manifesto for creatives, misfits, innovators, and disruptors from the star of So You Think You Can Dance and creator of Broadway's Finding Neverland

A UNICORN IN A WORLD OF DONKEYS offers a playbook for living a creative and authentic life. Using her own story as a launching spot, and creative quizzes, charts, and lists to engage the reader in an interactive journey, Mia Michaels explores the experience of the unicorn in a world of donkeys, a world where fitting in, pleasing others, following rules, and maintaining norms-no matter how messed up those norms are-is the only acceptable path. She acknowledges the struggles of the unicorn life-loneliness, ridicule, being misunderstood and undervalued-and goes on encourage readers to reframe the unicorn life the way she has, as essential to a life of brilliance.

  • One word describes Mia Michaels . . . FEARLESS! Everything she touches goes beyond expectations. Which says a lot because the expectations on her are always high. Working with her was such a highlight of my career because I've always been such a fan. That fearlessness is perfectly translated into this book. C'mon, it's Mia, you already know that this book is going to be incredible before you even open the cover! - Matthew Morrison, TV star of Glee, actor, dancer, and singer-songwriter

  • Mia embodies magic in her dance. It's no wonder she now runs with unicorns. Young artists, buy this book! - Kristin Chenoweth, Tony-winning actress and singer

  • Mia Michaels is a brilliant choreographer and director. Now add "writer," and you have a triple threat--and we all know good things come in threes. - Harvey Weinstein

  • Mia is a force of nature! She has an infectious energy that inspires you want to create with her. - Heidi Klum, model, TV host, producer, fashion designer
