    Story
    (445)

    In his bravest and most challenging book yet, Seth Godin shows how we can thrive in an economy that rewards art, not compliance. He explains why true innovators focus on trust, remarkability, leadership, and stories that spread. And he makes a passionate argument for why you should be treating your work as art. Art is not a gene or a specific talent. It's an attitude, available to anyone who has a vision that others don't, and the guts to do something about it.

    If you could sum up The Icarus Deception in three words, what would they be?

    Validating, unstructured, worthwhile


    What aspect of Seth Godin’s performance would you have changed?

    Seth's voice is calming and easy to listen to, but can border on a monotone. He rarely changes up his rhythm or presentational style.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Icarus Deception?

    The Icarus Deception gives fantastic insight into the role of the artist in the connected economy, and helps to validate the work of creative entrepreneurs who are emerging. It's not new or original information, but it's concise.

  • I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t): Telling the Truth about Perfectionism, Inadequacy, and Power

    Story

    Based on seven years of ground-breaking research and hundreds of interviews, I Thought It Was Just Me shines a long-overdue light on an important truth: Our imperfections are what connect us to each other and to our humanity. Our vulnerabilities are not weaknesses; they are powerful reminders to keep our hearts and minds open to the reality that we're all in this together.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t) to be better than the print version?

    No. I would recommend reading this book over listening to it. The performance verges on annoying and I would've preferred to scan some sections throughout the book.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Brenee's research into shame and the accompanying insights are fascinating and deeply helpful. She draws on countless interviews to populate her data with strong evidence.


    What didn’t you like about Lauren Fortgang’s performance?

    Repetitious and not subtle.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.
