Listener Opinions

    " interesting anecdotes from the world's most recognizable marketer "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bryan | 1/16/2014

    " The ultimate collection of ideas and "purple cows" coming from Seth Godin's blog. Some really inspiring stories of people and companies who started from nothing and did something truly remarkable and different. Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, Starbucks, it's all in there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David McKee | 1/14/2014

    " I always enjoy whatever Seth Godin writes. This book is simply a collection of his ideas on anything related to how "businesses" operate and how they might improve what they do. "Business" can mean anything: a self-employed "micropreneur" to large corporations - doesn't matter. I might occasionally disagree with his politics (he rarely goes that direction in his books, anyway), but I always take away something positive from what I read, that I might apply to my own creative work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jack | 1/14/2014

    " Loving this book. It's a A.D.D readers best friend. There really is no specific organization, just a collection of short essays and observations of marketing, advertising, and consumerism. Very smart and insightful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Khuram Malik | 1/13/2014

    " Nice little snippets to get you thinking "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kingsley | 12/28/2013

    " Compilation of his blog. Main theme is: why are you reading this book and not out there BUILDING something? Do it now! Build it! Be remarkable. Provides motivation on why one should not sit in a desk and write reviews about books but rather provides insight on how to be successful through action. Oops! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christy | 12/23/2013

    " I found this author to be a bit self-glorifying. While there were some good points, I was unable to get past the first 1/5th of the book because the delivery (listened to the audio book, read by the author) was so... cheesy. It felt like going to a business-themed self-help seminar. In a bad way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lara Sanders | 12/7/2013

    " Pretty interesting...if you (like me) find Marketing interesting "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shaun | 9/14/2013

    " A quick, interesting read about business and marketing. This author has a unique pespective and I enjoyed many of his insights, but I didn't buy into everything. I plan to read other books from this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marita | 9/13/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don The Idea Guy Snyder | 3/23/2013

    " Excellent collection of Seth Godin's "Greatest Hits." Should be consumed and studied one chapter at a time -- not all in one sitting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lukáš | 3/21/2013

    " This book can force you to take action and actually change things - the same day! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joel | 2/1/2013

    " The book isn't set up in chapters, but more like short ideas like you'd post on a blog. Great business tips and snidbits, and very easy to read at any time in the day for 30 seconds or several hours. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charmaine Davis | 2/1/2012

    " Love it when someone can teach me how to think outside the box or to think--period. Easy to read format written blog-style(taken from his blog, lol). It's like taking a think pill. Read one daily! "
