    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.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I have recommended it already to several people. This book is the line in the sand between the you that has doubts and the you that is a powerful artist. The Icarus Deception has changed my perspective on the work force and has inspired me to take part in the communications revolution doing what I truly love. This book is almost like a self help book because of all the powerful esteem boosting tips: such as: "abandon your world view", "you are not your art", and "learning allows you to become a participant instead of a spectator". It helped me answer a lot of questions for myself such as: WHY IS MY ART NOT WORKING? HOW DO I GET TO WHERE I WANT TO GO? HOW CAN I TAKE MY ART FURTHER? TID super pumped me up and has given me light on my projects and goals.


    What does Seth Godin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Seth Godin demonstrates conviction with every word he says. You can hear his passion in his voice. I truly believe him and his words are backed by real life examples. He expresses his vulnerabilities and is someone to be inspired by.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did have an extreme reaction. I definitely laughed but more often I had stunned WOW moments. Gaps in my knowledge were filled. The book took me longer to listen then normal because I had to stop and take notes at every chapter :)


    Any additional comments?

    Read this. Enough said.
