Poke the Box Giveaway


Giveaway Closed – you can buy Poke the Box on Kindle for $4.99 now.

Seth Godin releases his latest work, Poke the Box, in March.

Poke the Box is a manifesto by bestselling author Seth Godin that just might make you uncomfortable. It’s a call to action about the initiative you’re taking-– in your job or in your life. Godin knows that one of our scarcest resources is the spark of initiative in most organizations (and most careers)-– the person with the guts to say, “I want to start stuff.”

Poke the Box just may be the kick in the pants you need to shake up your life.

The above sums up what the book is aimed at – kicking you in the pants.

In Seth’s own words about what you’ll learn from Poke the Box:

Hopefully you will learn lots but do more. Start thinking about when you’ve taken initiative in a way that really meant something to you and your team, your family. When was the last time you did something for the first time? How did it feel?

There are no step-by-step how-to instructions in Poke the Box. Instead, you’ll find a series of layers, a foundation for taking a different approach to your work. Instead of learning to be more compliant, I want to push you to be the one who takes initiative.

I’m excited to get my hands on this book. So excited in fact that I’ve ordered five copies. Five copies means four copies to give away.
