This book gives the listener the responsibility to change their deepest habits. I've often wondered about this topic of habit formation. This book gives a great detailed approach to identifying the triggers, the routines and the rewards of habits. After reading this book I would say no person is addicted to doing anything. They just follow a process that their brain has formed. It is up to that person to change their habits. This book gives you the ability to be aware of why people do the same thing over and over again. I will be recommending this book to everyone that desires to do something different.

There used to be two teams in every workplace: management and labor. Now there’s a third team, the linchpins. These people invent, lead (regardless of title), connect others, make things happen, and create order out of chaos. They figure out what to do when there’s no rule book. They delight and challenge their customers and peers. They love their work, pour their best selves into it, and turn each day into a kind of art.

This book of creative discovery blow me off my chair. The "machine" that has held a generation in fear from expressing the artist on the inside is dying. Seth Godin uncovers the truth about the suppressive nature of the economic machine. Inside of each of use lies an artist that was made to create and be creative. This audible will propel you past the mediocre, and into a new level of creativity.
