I was heaved into a world 34 yrs ago that made little sense to me. Not perplexing every answer was given. None ever satisfied. Preventing destructive governance by destroying satisfied me enough. It fit well with my own self destructive outlook. I found a new world hidden 4yrs past. Fascination flooded over me. I found my inner artist. I have used painting (canvas, clothing indoors and out) landscaping, home repair/ remodeling... In different ways of expressing my new passionate world. All are great connectors. This perception pushed me to renewed zeal and excitement. To have someone describe why this world is in its current state and what is being offered to us. Creation is a act of love and the micro image of god. I accept the views challenge and passion placed forward by such a wonderful heart and mind as I perceive. I will enjoy this book narration and lecture many more times. Thank you Sire! Mr. Godin I see the god in you! Thank you for your connections.
Book Review Haiku Mike
My second listen. It gets better every time. Godin reading is a treat. Challenging the notion of what is uncomfortable.
Many useful points helped me see things differently. Seth Godin has a way of digging deep into thoughts in the back of our minds but don't always take time to explore.
I liked Seth's other books better, such as Purple Cow, Tribes, and Linchpin. However, this book has a good perspective as to staying too comfortable and not taking the necessary risks to be an impresario.
This is not a book of business strategy or tactics. It is purely inspirational writing. It worked for me. This is the Seth Godin book that was recommended to me repeatedly by trusted friends, and I enjoyed it more than I actually expected to. So much that I've recommended it to others, and will most likely give this a repeat listen.
This book has brought to the surface all of the things that an artist is and all that we struggle with. It has helped me embrace those things that I thought should be "fixed" and has given me a boost of confidence that my ways are different but no less effective. I highly recommend it to the artist and to anyone who loves one.
