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.
Repetitive and contradictory at times, this is still an inspirational listen if you're an artist and/or concerned that you may not be utilizing your creative potential.
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.
