Tribes - Seth Godin

Review of Tribes

by Seth Godin

140 Characters:

Ironically, Seth Godin wants you to follow him in not following anyone else. Just buy the book first.

140 Words:

Seth Godin needs you to lead us. He writes in short declarative sentences, in Powerpoint, if you will. He gets to the point. His point is: do your thing and be accessible, then people will follow. And don’t worry about pissing people off.

“Heretics are the new leaders,” he says.

Furthermore, you must ask yourself, “How can I create something that critics will criticize?”

With Tribes, he just did; with this review, have I? I feel the pain.

“Being charismatic doesn’t make you a leader. Being a leader makes you charismatic.”

I believe our last two presidents are in stark contrast with each other along this continuum. Are you feeling Godin’s allure, yet?

“And in the end, cynicism is a lousy strategy.”

Amen. (But what about light-hearted sarcasm?)
