"Tribes is a must read for all of us. It's up to each one of us to lead in today's new kind of world."
Former U.S. senator Bill Bradley
This is one of the most important books I have read this year. I highly recommend it."
Michael Hyatt^"Tribes is a short book—only 147 pages. But its short size belies its true importance. As I read it, I was literally underlining every other sentence. I went through two hi-lighters before I finished!"
—Michael Hyatt, author of Platform and Living Forward
"Tribes is a must read for all of us. It’s up to each one of us to lead in today’s new kind of world.”
—Former U.S. senator Bill Bradley
"Godin...is uniquely respected for his understanding of the Internet, and his essays and opinions are widely read and quoted on and off."
"It's easy to see why people pay to hear what he has to say."
"If Seth Godin didn't exist we'd need to invent him."
—Alan Webber, founder, Fast Company
"If your idea, or issue, or candidate, or product isn't catching on, you haven't been reading Seth Godin."
—Micah Sifry, cofounder, Personal Democracy Forum
"Godin is endlessly curious, opinionated, and knowledgeable on a wide variety of subjects. He is a relentless marketer…and also a clear-eyed visionary."

The second best line in the book is "Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don't to escape from."
He challenges us to step up, and lead the change away from status quo. He also challenges us to rethink what it means to be a leader.
I think that is a great concept. And, I think it's a message worth spreading even though I really don't believe that everyone should be a leader. But I do believe that change is good, and we need more change, especially inside many of the organizations in the country (auto manufacturers maybe?!).
If you've never read Seth Godin's work before... don't start with this book. "The Dip", "The Purple Cow" and even the free one "Bootstrapper's Bible" are better reads.
That said, every books speaks to every person different depending on where they are in their lives. So, if you're a fan of Godin, read the book. And, maybe it will speak to you more than it spoke to me.
The author is great, but this is not the best of his work ( IMHO ).
The same theme and message is being repeated over and over, without much of elaboration.
