Poke the Box – Video Book Review

Bless Seth Godin. He’s just published the first book by the new Domino Project (which is his project with Amazon), Poke the Box (amazon affiliate link). It’s just over 70 pages, which is super short, but when you get into it, you’ll see why. The idea is punchy. It’s a fast read that you’re then meant to implement. It’s about GO. It’s about DO. It’s about working more than you’re just talking.

The ideas in the book are worth the purchase price. And, because it’s Domino, you can get it in hardcover or Kindle version rather easily.

Truth be told, this is a great GIFT book for people. Give this to the new startup person. Give this to the person who feels stuck at work. Give this to the person who feels like they wish they were doing more than just talking. It’s THAT book. Check out my little video about it:

    Cool. I’m a fan of Godin’s writing and his blog so reading this will be interesting. I liked how slim and to the point The Dip was so I suspect that style plus Linchpin knowledge will be able to be felt in Poke The Box. Thanks for the review.

    You know, this is a theme that Seth and you have been hitting on (directly and indirectly) for some time now and I really appreciate it. Already I’ve been more inspired and have taken actual steps (not just mental steps) to start making it a reality. So a big thanks to you both.

    My copy is scheduled for delivery tomorrow.

    I’m excited – bought it on Amazon for $1 and it was delivered today to my iPad. Just about to get started. Listened to Linchoin again, which was a strict coincidence, actually. :)

    What a deal at $1 on Amazon. I am reading almost exclusively using my tablet and the Kindle app.

    Chris, what’s IN the book? WHAT’S IT ABOUT?! Other than doing and going and the new stuff? Holy moley. I’m sorry to be so negative here, but other video book reviews you’ve done have at least dealt with the subject of the book in a LITTLE detail. If it’s worth the money it costs, then please tell me why.

    Hi Chris, I have the Kindle version and I purchased the special box version because I love Seth Godin’s work. I am curious why you mentioned several times “70″ pages? As to quality of the read I believe Seth stands on his own now so anyone who serves any market needs to read Seth’s work. I have been pushing this book for teens and young adults so they may see a better path than being a “cog” like their parents have been. The “cog” is done unless you desire lower and lower wages.

    Hi Chris,

    $ 1 to download to my ipad – what a deal! Headed on a train tomorrow to DC – will download and read and will be back to tell you what I think. Hope it is as good as Linchpin.

    Best, MA
