He told me what it was but not how to do it. Waste of time. ( )

Amazing book. Thoroughly enjoyed it. ( )

Seth Godin’s blog is very popular with many people I respect, so I gave the book a try. There are lots of good ideas in the book for creating and promoting a business, and finding the people who will want your product or service. He argues that you can’t sell to everyone; you are going to sell to a tribe that shares your values.

The writing style of his short, thought provoking, sometimes scattershot blog entries has been imported without modification into a fairly long book, however, so after a while I found it tough going.

Probably the most important takeaway I got was that SEO is a way for Google and Facebook to make money, not necessarily for the would be entrepreneur. ( )
