Seth Godin’s new book, Poke the Box, is a short 84 page manifesto that will push you to get up and try something. If it fails, so what? Try something else. Godin offers some great, humorous, advice for overcoming the roadblocks and obstacles that you’ll face as you attempt to make something happen.
