  • The Icarus Deception: How High Will You Fly?

    Story

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Icarus Deception to be better than the print version?

    It puts the spotlight on you


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

    When you try to produce to someone else's view, you will slowly loose yourself in that quest.


    Any additional comments?

    One could say that it is the same old message and maybe it is, maybe this was the tipping point for me and my situation but it is a solid book for driving home some fundamental points on creativity.

  • Heroes of History

    Story
    (52)

    At Will Durant's death at 96, in 1981, his personal papers were dispersed among relatives, collectors, and archive houses. Twenty years later, scholar John Little discovered the previously unknown manuscript of Heroes of History in Durant's granddaughter's garage. Written shortly before he died, these 21 essays serve as an abbreviated version of Durant's best-selling, 11-volume series, The Story of Civilization.

    John says: "A celebration of history"
    "History through a religious eye"
    Overall

    Fabulous writing without doubt, informative and well presented. I enjoyed this book very much. I would only comment that it had such a heavy relation to history in context of religion that it should be titled in such away to describe this.
