While there were definitely some provocative ideas in this book, many of these ideas were overshadowed by the inundation of unfounded proposition after unfounded proposition. Throughout the book, he continued to idolize leaders and demonize managers. It is as though it never occurred to him that great leaders could also inspire great managers. Overall this book was overhyped. It was a lot of style very little substance. The book could have been made significantly better had he chosen to work with an economist or researcher who could have shown him how to support and develop his ideas more concretely.
Tribalism has evolved from the genetic, to the regional, to the religious, to the national...to the brand. A good book, but he should have hired a better narrator.
If the world is formed of tribes, and if all tribes need a leader, then surely Seth Godin is the leader of leaders. This book is so fun, informative and easily digestible that when I got to the end, I immediately hit Play and started it again. Thanks to the ideas and concepts in this book, I've brushed off my blogs and my Facebook account, and I'm working harder than ever to bring my ideas into the world by gathering together those of like minds. Read this book and join the tribe!
A great book for people who are dedicated leaders reaching in times of doubt. Good true assessment of fear blocking leadership. Loose examples without detail of how work is accomplished.
Refers to book as a program in the recording, which is sloppy, intended to avoid the word book, but is disappointing since it is more of a book than a program in any sense.
Quick read. No practical implementation advice. Basically leadership is needed for the movement, but hard, just struggle through it.
This is the third audio book of Seth's that I have listened to in the past 3 weeks. The guy is a great author, extremely intelligent, and a great motivator. The 3 books have made me rethink my career choice. I have been recommending him to everyone.
