I began reading Seth Godin’s blog last year. I find his writing style easy and enjoyable to read. He challenges me to think outside the usual lines which I appreciate. I read this book earlier this year as it applies to several areas of my life, my personal platform building, the nonprofit organizations I serve, and the church I attend. Regardless of your role in life, I think this book will speak to your influence or at least your potential to influence. A great read.
