Something like that is good and interesting "for the connection economy. A lot of the book is meaningless, but the dumbest thing I heard was "interesting is the opposite of coherent. We should be creating art, so we should be flouting coherence whenever it's in our way. The author sets a fine example by putting forward an incoherent argument in this book.
So it must be art. That's the only way that I can understand its popularity. Jan 16, camcollins rated it really liked it. In a wonderful podcast series called the Seth Godin Startup School, Seth announces to the group in the summer of that four years ago he stopped writing for the masses and just started focusing on his tribe. He said he didn't really need more readers and that he wanted to give back to his audience, to make art for them.
This book embodies that notion. If you have read a number of Seth Godin books, Icarus builds on a theme that Seth has been building on since Permission Marketing. Icarus in my In a wonderful podcast series called the Seth Godin Startup School, Seth announces to the group in the summer of that four years ago he stopped writing for the masses and just started focusing on his tribe. Icarus in my opinion is a more personal extension of Linchpin where he gets more into the personal nature and internal struggles people have in their mental battle of transforming from "cog" to "artist".
In the main stream media and general press this book will likely get mixed reviews. Some people get Seth, others don't and I am sure Seth is just fine with that. After all if his art didn't make a ruckus it wouldn't be art, right? I was a contributor to Seth's Kickstarter that funded this project.
Jan 30, Sue Cartwright rated it really liked it Shelves: I've only just started reading this book and already I am inspired to stop procrastinating and publish my art! The interesting thing that Seth highlights in his usual brilliant style is that the Icarus legend is often interpreted all wrong. The part of the myth we are told is to not fly too high, as Daedalus instructed his son, Icarus not too get too close to the sun or his wings made of wax would melt.
What we have NOT been told is that Daedalus also instructed his son not to fly too LOW, beca I've only just started reading this book and already I am inspired to stop procrastinating and publish my art! What we have NOT been told is that Daedalus also instructed his son not to fly too LOW, because the water would ruin the lift in his wings. I'm only on page 19 and already I get the point, the connection economy demands that we create art, that we create opportunities amid the junk, that we categorically reject criticism, and bravely go where no man or woman has gone before with our own unique insight, talent and personality to make the world a better place.
I will be back with the full story, but thank you again, Seth for giving me the courage to ACT.
Jan 07, Kent Winward rated it really liked it. I usually agree with Godin about things, but implementation always is harder than it seems it should be. If you need to rally fellow employees, customers, investors, believers, hobbyists, or readers around an idea, this How to drive your career and create a remarkable future de Seth Godin Why are some people easily outsourced, downsized, or freelanced into obscurity, while others have their pick of opportunities?
In his most powerful book yet, Seth Godin argues that it's more essential than ever to become indispensable - to become a linchpin. Linchpins are the essential building blocks of great organizations: Pero la realidad hoy es otra: Listen to the experts. It was the perfect propaganda for the industrial economy. It says that the marketer is not--and ought not to be--at the center of successful marketing.
