Descriptions du produit

From Publishers Weekly

In what's likely to be the next in a string of bestselling marketing guides (after Purple Cow), Godin compiles entries from his popular blog. Many are only a few paragraphs long, though he also adds longer entries, from his Fast Company column, to the mix. The pieces are arranged alphabetically by title rather than chronologically, leading to occasional choppiness, but Godin's ability to hone in on key issues remains intact. Following up on the themes of his earlier books, he reminds readers that the first key to successful marketing is to produce something remarkable and let it grow. "If your idea is great, people will find you," he advises. "[I]f your target audience isn't listening, it's not their fault, it's yours." He urges people to take control of their creative lives by taking responsibility for tough decisions and pushing themselves to make bolder choices. (His advice to McDonald's, for example, includes free wireless Web access at every restaurant.) The appendix contains two lengthy essays on Web design and blogs that were previously distributed as e-books. These are a more polished than the casual main entries, but still exhibit the spontaneous energy that has earned Godin so many loyal fans. (Aug. 17)

From AudioFile

This audiobook will last all year, or perhaps, a lifetime. Godin is a skilled and dynamic presenter, and his originality and spontaneous style come across perfectly in audio. SMALL is truly a catalog of ideas from Godin's books, PERMISSION MARKETING and THE PURPLE COW, and his blog, as well as articles in FAST COMPANY. It's alphabetized by topic, and SMALL's subtitle, "Riffs, Rants, etc.," tells you what to expect. Godin kindly says, "Don't listen to this program all at once. It will give you a headache." True enough, even short listening hits may well spur listeners to absorb a kernel of an idea that could lead to remarkable things. Godin's enthusiast-self is the perfect irreverent marketer of his own ideas. Whether two sentences or 20 minutes, the topics provide thought exercise for anyone interested in the culture of innovation. R.F.W.

Booklist

Godin, author and business blogger, presents a collection of essays that are thoughtful and wise. His ideas are skillfully presented with themes that include being big is no longer an advantage, so act small if you want to be big; with instant communication, lies get exposed faster than ever; consumers are more powerful than ever; and Aretha Franklin is correct: respect is the secret to success with people. His comments on business schools are challenging and contain his list of five things that help people succeed, including finding, hiring, and managing extraordinary people; embracing a changing world while effectively prioritizing tasks in it; and the ability to sell. Readers skip his riff on Web design and strategy at their peril. Along with his definition of velocity--a company's ability to zig and zag and zoom or change with speed--Godin tells us, "Give me five serially incompetent executives with a focus on velocity, and I can change the world." Excellent. Mary Whaley

Back Cover copy

"Godin's collection is arranged alphabetically and was compiled mostly from his short, snappy blog, Fast Company column and e-books.... His riffs jump wildly, from the strategy of coming up with a cool name for your business to thoughts on polka music playing on elevators.... If you're looking for a jump-start, this is a good place to begin."
-USA Today

"Godin's keen insights on the nature of business in this early part of the 21st century are extremely practical and relatable. Though he's a big thinker, there's nothing eggheaded or esoteric in his writing.... He riffs on various factors affecting modern business: the Internet, time deficits, scarcity, the power of stories, the value of authenticity, the death of mass marketing, excellence, incompetence and how these things create challenges and opportunities for people and companies. For all Godin's savvy, the one thing he rarely gets credit for is his writing. The simplicity and clarity with which he conveys his ideas is assumed, but it's not easy to do, believe me."
-Miami Herald

"Read this book a few pages at a time. Why? The book contains statements and ideas that make you think. You need time to mull them over. Time to think about how you might apply them. Take away what you need. Make copies of what you found interesting and give them to your coworkers. Repeat every few days."
-Chicago Tribune

"Godin's writings are generally inspirational - the book is a huge bowl of ideas that you can gobble in one sitting or dip into at any time."
-BlogCritics.org

"Seth's real gift is his ability to think big, to challenge the status quo, and to inspire your own big ideas in return. In other words, you won't leave the table hungry."
-MarketingProfs.com

"Business and marketing ideas from one of the genre's most original thinkers.... Godin writes with humor and infectious energy, and there are plenty of engaging stories and ideas here to get you out of a rut and help jump-start your creativity.... Godin's inspired worldview - in which the most mundane experiences trigger great business ideas - makes for an educational and enjoyable read."
-Kirkus Reports
