It's totally unique. A prod to create a ruckus. Not for cynics. Not for optimists. For realists. For leaders. If it resonates, take it, if it doesn't, try something else. There are enough books out there. For me, this is the Bible. For you, it might be something else.
I often wondered how 7 hours could feel like such a long time while listening to this book. There are a lot of theories and a lot of talking and not a lot of practical application. I get that that was the point of the book, that you had to figure it out yourself, but it just wasn't really helpful to me.
This is the first Seth Godin book I've read, and I now understand why he's so popular. This is an insightful perspective on a new paradigm of work in what he terms the connection economy. Seth challenges you to find your art, face your fears, ship it and continue to do still until you succeed.
I really want to like Seth Godin. He draws you in with a good idea, but then it all descends into vapidity and repetition so quickly. I think his short blog posts are terrific, but they just don't scale into a book.
Seth Godin knows how to make you reflect on your situation and think of strategies to help you achieve your next art project. And for that, I thank him.
Serh Godin is a master in making us think. But his pace and rhythm while talking can throw people off. This book is a great way to break with the established system and create a new, fresh way of connecting with people. Read it.
