Blogger and business book reviewer for Success Reads.
If you're a person or business, have a job, a company, or a relationship and aren't at the top of your field or have the perfect life, I recommend you listen to this book. It's nothing we all don't already know, its just most of us don't know when to quit and when to go for it. Most never even consider the question at all.
I come back to this book again and again whenever I feel stuck. It reminds me to take a look at where I am and see if it's time to pivot into my next move.The content is precise, short and sweet. The examples are meaningful and easy to absorb.it's the perfect pick me up if you feel stuck in your job or profession.
So glad I found this book by Seth Godin. Just great life advice whatever your career pursuit! I highly recommend it.
Anyone struggling with life, jobs, or success needs this book.
Take an hour and a half and change your life. You owe it to yourself.

Good read that helped me do the right thing and do it strategically. Has my recommendation for a future read.
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.
