Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>


The Icarus Deception

[how High Will You Fly?]

Godin, Seth

(Audiobook CD - 2012)
Average Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5.
The Icarus Deception
Seth Godin challenges listeners to find the courage to treat their work as a form of art. Godin uses the legend of Icarus flying near the sun and meeting his demise to illustrate his point, but he points out a forgotten aspect of the myth--fly too low and close to the water and you will sink--an aspect he believes is more dangerous in business. Godin argues that aiming too low and conforming is more fatal to productivity, and he challenges listeners to be professionally creative in their fields.
