Poke The Box by Seth Godin

Poke the Box is a manifesto by bestselling author Seth Godin that just might make you uncomfortable. It’s a call to action about the initiative you’re taking-– in your job or in your life. Godin knows that one of our scarcest resources is the spark of initiative in most organizations (and most careers)-– the person with the guts to say, “I want to start stuff.”

Poke the Box just may be the kick in the pants you need to shake up your life.

I am reading all kinds of stuff to get my life in gear. Maybe it is a mid-life crisis, but I feel stuck. Poke the Box is an interesting quick read. It gives ideas on how to stir things up in your life for your benefit. Many of us sit around and wait for things to happen to us, we haven't learned that we happen to life.

It reads mostly as an instruction manual for those in the business world, but it can be applied to all sections of life. I think this is a great book for writers as well.

3.5 out of 5 stars.
