Publisher's Summary

Why are some people easily outsourced, downsized, or freelanced into obscurity, while others have their pick of opportunities? In his most powerful book yet, Seth Godin argues that it's more essential than ever to become indispensable – and the key to being indispensable is overcoming the fears that hold most of us back.

Fear of change, fear of authority, fear of embarrassment all come from the most primitive and powerful part of our brain. Godin shows how to overcome that internal resistance, so you can unleash your greatest art, passion, insight, and generosity at work.

Changed the way I think about work.

The best part about this book is that it is not a 'how to' guide. Seth Godin writes in a way that empowers individuals to draw their own conclusions but whilst he is doing this, he educates with very valid examples of why he makes his point. This book has not only gifted me with permission to create and become and artist, but it makes me embrace the passion I have to make my own path. The first time I tried to listen to this book, I did not quite get into it. It does take a good amount of time to get to 'part 2' - or the guts of the book, but, having listened to the whole book, part 1 gives the book more depth overall. I really enjoyed it.

Top 5 books of my life.

A true revolutionary mind-realigner, and a absolute must read for all artists, creators, entrepreneurs, and forward thinking people. Just finished it, and about to put it on play again. There is that much gold in here.

Snake oil

I can’t stand books that tell you that they truly understand YOU in the first chapter. This book panders to people’s insecurities, and sets out to convince you that everyone can be special.
I was feeling ill after 10 minutes. What tosh!

An interesting read

A much read for those interested in differentiating themselves. I read the book and listened to the audio book and it’s a great story. Not a huge fan on Seth’s voice , but aside from that it was great.

This book was written for a pre-social media world

This book came out in 2010. If you've been working over the last few years then most of this book will be self-evident.

A great read

I absolutely love this audiobook and the ideas presented by Seth. What he shared about leadership and art are so relevant in today's changing world. I have been recommending this books to my friends and actually looked to buy printed version too!

Just fluff

There is nothing profound or even remotely practical in this book. Seth has simply pumped out another generic business commentary piece that is as deep as to the TED audience it's designed to cater for.
