This page has links to blog posts, free ebooks and more.

Three new books came out at the end of 2012

Just in time for winter (or, if you live down under, the beach) here are three new books I've created. I hope you'll check them out.

The Icarus Deception: How High Will You Fly?
The Icarus Deception: How High Will You Fly?

A rant, a manifesto, a description of the end of the industrial world we grow up in and most of all, a call to take advantage of the opportunities that lie before us. Go make a ruckus.

V Is for Vulnerable: Life Outside the Comfort Zone
V Is for Vulnerable: Life Outside the Comfort Zone

The last chapter of Icarus, lovingly illustrated by the fabulous Hugh Macleod. It looks like a kid's book, but it's not.

Whatcha Gonna Do with That Duck?: And Other Provocations, 2006-2012
Whatcha Gonna Do with That Duck?: And Other Provocations, 2006-2012

The very best of the last six years of my blog. More than 600 pages, it weighs nearly two pounds.


Stop Stealing Dreams (the free education manifesto) - What is school for?

Small Is the New Big: and 183 Other Riffs, Rants, and Remarkable Business Ideas

After five years of blogging and a long run as the most popular columnist in Fast Company's history, I compiled a book.



Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us
Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us

This is my latest book, it shipped in October. It's about leadership as a marketing tool. Picked as Book of the Year by 8CR, a New York Times bestseller and short enough to read in an hour.

Pick Four (4 Pack - Designed to Share)

Every single copy printed sold out in three hours, but more will be available by mid-August, 2011.

The Zig Ziglar goal planner is a classic--because it works. Now updated in a handsome, easy and really inexpensive version (you get four in a pack) it's really worth a try. It's hard to overstate how effective it is.


How to avoid the Meatball Sundae?

First, you have to know what it is

Meatball Sundae is about the mismatch between traditional marketing and what you find online... Find all the details right here:

Meatball Sundae

A meatball sundae is the unfortunate result of mixing two good ideas.

The meatballs are the foundation, the things we need (and sometimes want). These are the commodities that so many businesses are built on.

The sundae toppings (hot fudge and the like) are the New Marketing, the social networks, Google, blogs and fancy stuff that make people all excited.

The challenge most organizations face: they try to mix them. They attempt to slap new marketing onto old and end up with nothing but a failed website.

This book explores the 14 trends that are changing our world and how organizations can either embrace them or be punished by them.

Seth's Philosophy (short Version, Via His Books)

  1. For fifty years, advertising (and the pre-packaged, one-way stories that make good advertising] drove our economy. Then media exploded. We went from three channels to 500 hundred, from no web pages to a billion. At the same time, the number of choices mushroomed. There are more than 100 brands of nationally advertised water. There are dozens of car companies, selling thousands of combinations. Starbucks offers 19,000,000 different ways to order a beverage, and Oreo cookies come in more than nineteen flavors.In the face of all this choice and clutter, consumers realized that they have quite a bit of power. So advertising stopped working.

  2. One insight is that marketing with permission works better than spam. In other words, delivering anticipated, personal and relevant ads to the people who want to get them is always more effective than yelling loudly at strangers. PERMISSION MARKETING addresses this issue.

  3. Once an idea is in the hands of people who care about its success, it may be lucky enough to benefit from digitally augmented word of mouth. I call this an ideavirus. Modern ideas spread online and off, and this is faster and more effective than the old-fashioned centralized way of selling. UNLEASHING THE IDEAVIRUS is the most successful ebook of all time and you can buy the paperback for about $10. Feel free to look for the ebook online as well. It's free.

  4. It's remarkable products that get remarked on. That seems obvious, but it flies in the face of the way most goods and services and business items are created and marketed. Boring is invisible. PURPLE COW is all about this.

  5. The thing that makes something remarkable isn't usually directly related to the original purpose of the product or service. It's the FREE PRIZE INSIDE, the extra stuff, the stylish bonus, the design or the remarkable service or pricing that makes people talk about it and spread the word.

  6. The controversial ALL MARKETERS ARE LIARS isn't about lying at all. It's about telling stories that people want to believe. It's about the fact that people want bottled water, not tap, iPod Nanos, not Rios, and politicians who talk straight, regardless of the consequences... But most of all, it's about authenticity.

  7. Marketing is now called leadership. You can lead a tribe of people, connect them, commit to them and create a movement.
  8. Most of all, Godin believes that it's possible to enjoy your job, to do the right thing, to be transparent, to give more than you get and to be successful, all at the same time. In fact, that's sort of the definition of success, isn't it?

I like your take on venturing out and not falling into what the schools are teaching you. I think my first Lens was on a book that talked about anti-traditional school b/c it CHANGED my life!

Someone called me a Linchpin and I didn't know if it was a compliment or an insult. Guess I feel a bit honored now. Should've read up more on you prior to joining Squidoo, I really respect your philosophies about business, marketing and the internet. There is a saying in medicine, 'People do not sue doctors that they like.' For sure, it takes guts to 'do the right thing' even if it doesn't make the big bucks at first. (However, it creates longevity and a legacy - always reminds me of the Heinz ketchup bio I saw). Thanks for keeping me (and others) inspired here on Squidoo Seth!

Stay Well,

I wish I could say that I aspire to live by your lessons; however, that would spit in the face of everything that your preach. Instead, I will honor your teachings by being the best cigar smoking, competitor destroying, information generating bad-# marketing son of a gun New Jersey has ever seen.

Seth is the man! The Purple Cow was one of the first business books that I read. Truly inspiring and entertaining at the same time.

If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't have a purple cow in my front yard... When the neighbors ask to pet him I say sure... but be careful " He has a FREE prize inside!!! Just Kidding but I truly enjoy your books, you help put a different spin on things!

You, Seth Godin, are just a little bald purple cow of goodness, aren't ya? How is it you have so many remarkable ideas packed in to that meatball of yours? Love it! Now if I could just figure out how to implement all of the ideas I have after listening to you, I could have my dessert and eat it too! Thanks for sharing!

I came across one of your talks on the internet and I cannot get enough! Just watched your presentation at Google, and I really got a lot out of it. I watched it with closed captioning, because my speakers are going out - and it's funny how they kept spelling it Scoodoo. I am so far behind the times, I just got into this a couple days ago. I really enjoy it though. Thanks.

Seth, I've been told that you have some influence around here. If that's true, you could be a real hero to the Lensmaster community by getting rid of that huge ugly "related lenses" black bar that appears at the bottom of every lens.

Chemistry Digital Vlog One ... huh? I listened through that video twice and it still sounds like those fellows are talking about "pushing people through layers of permission" in order to permit them to consume more of their company's content. [insert emoticon for perplexity here] Must go watch your inspiring conversation with the lovely and talented Jonathan Fields again, by way of clearing the palette.

All Marketeers are Liars? I also thought the same thing but I am constantly trying to convince myself the opposite. It is just the way you sell it... I guess anything is worth something, and as long as you know how to present it, you are not lying... right? Although it may seem so... This is me trying to convince myself that marketeers are NOT liars...!

Also, Seth, do you have a list of books you published in 2013?

seth godin 3 years ago Author

@caossquidoo: No new books since Icarus and V is for Vulnerable and Watcha Gonna Do With That Duck, all of which came out on 12/31/12.

As for 'liars', give it a read. It's not about what you think it's about.
