Dips vs cul-de-sac: which road are you on. Where is your road leading. When to quit.
Great examples in this book and food for thought.
Easy listen/read. Listened twice in a row.
I love how Seth can make a point. This is such a simple subject and he lays out a very simple concept that most of us would agree with. However very few actually apply this to their lots well. By digging in with him through this book you will be challenged and pushed to move forward into your destiny.
I have read every Seth Godin book ever written, supported his kickstarter and stalked his blog for years and I am here to tell you that this book is the best title of the bunch (followed closely by fan favorite Purple Cow). The ideas are great and help you to see that there is no shame in quitting, that the only true problem is with failing.
For me it was definitely the information about how medical schools put up barriers that weed out all the mediocre doctor wanna-bes so that the profession can maintain its high standards and prestige.
I would call it, Listen To The Bald Guy, He Knows What He Is Talking About!
I read this originally and have listened to it on audiobook a number of times. Having Seth himself read it definitely adds to the experience and unlike some other authors, he stays really true to the book in his narration if going off script bothers you.
compelling, inspiring, simple
The story about the doctor who decided to switch career paths.
His passion and guts. I'm working on trying to achieve that level of eloquence.
The ability to do recognize the dip as such and make bold moves accordingly.
Your insights may have well changed my outlook on the need to follow my ideals. Thanks Godin!
People who left negative comments about this book probably didn't get through the dip of finishing it and should have quit before listening. It's a brilliant book and it has already changed my life.
