Seth Godin brings a new perspective to work, challenging each of us to see ourselves as artists instead of workers. At first, I was skeptical and thought that this may only apply to entrepreneurs and not to those of us who are employed by others, but the book came so highly recommended by several people that I gave it a chance - and I'm very glad I did.
As I finished the book, I immediately changed the way I look on work. When someone criticizes something I've produced, I don't get frustrated. I've given my work as a gift, and if I've given it, then I have no control over what the recipient does with it. Many an artist has been criticized and misunderstood because they are "ahead of their time".
As a worker, criticism reflects on me. As an artist, criticism reflects on the beholder of my work.
From the reviews I've read of the work, much of what makes Ulysses a "masterpiece" is the characters' inner monologues. I'm guessing that is why this book is so confusing to listen to. It is impossible to tell when the character is interacting with another character and when he is thinking thoughts to himself.
No. I don't have two days to sit and listen to a book.

It just wasn't what I was looking for
The performance was average.
