Seth Godin continues to provide inspirational work. This easy to read book puts together a thesis which we should all consider if we want to grow in this information overload world. Simply speaking, his argument states to win, our products/services/individuality must be remarkable: worth making a remark about. Will you be the best, the most different, the wackiest? The parody? Each of these approaches set you aside from the 50 percentile: those companies who are "justa", average, standard. If you are remarkable, you are talked about and remembered. Tie a quality product/service with this and you can improve success. Look at Yo Sushi!, Virgin Atlantic, The Geek Squad.
I had the pleasure of hearing Seth speak at a recent conference. This book shows he practices what he speaks. A purple performer. Recommend the book to your friends. Give a copy to your Marketing department. Give a copy to your Web designers. Give a copy to everyone. Being purple is inspiring.
