Book 108: The Icarus Deception by Seth Godin (Audiobook)
Icarus Deception is the third or fourth book that I've read by Seth Godin. Seth is a revolutionary thinker who has been ahead of the curve in countless ways. This book is all about creating your own art (not just graphic art or visual art or tactile art) and essentially cutting your own path into the world.
The reason I think I loved this book was because it was short, sweet, and to the point. The Icarus Deception is heartfelt encouragement from the author to live authentic, creative lives, despite discouragement from employers, friends, or colleagues. If you can't do your art where you are, find a person or a company who you can work for and continue to develop your art. It's a fascinating, happy, and brilliant idea. Follow your heart, find your place, stay focused, grow.
Pick this book up as soon as you can, you'll love it.
