We sprang for the galleys as per Seth Godin's offer/plan for The Big Moo. I do not know Seth Godin, yet I have come to truly appreciate his point of view on many things (don't always agree but mostly). It was a bit of an experiment to grab the books as he had prescribed a commitment we plan to take very seriously.
I have read about a third of the book (no, I am not a slow or impaired reader - not that there is anything wrong with that - I just have been busy with lots of new business meetings in NYC, my son's birthday, etc.. and so forth).
I am refreshed. The short, somewhat anonymous chapters are like long, well-thought out blog posts. I am a big fan of Hugh Macleod whose business card haikus (yes, I know they are not Haikus) dot the book. These are stories. Some are profound truths. Some are interesting. Some make me laugh. The first chapter which is only a few pages long pretty much sums up the premise of the book Blue Ocean Strategy which I am dawdling through right now.
What I like most about Seth Godin (and Tom Peters for that matter) is his apparent ehthusiasm. I don't know if it's an act. I don't really care. I go into work everyday with a passion for the work. I find even the smallest projects interesting on some level. And I sense the same positive energy from Mr. Godin.
Anyhow, I recommend the book. I will finish it promptly.
