Book mentioned in this podcast:

poke the boxSeth Godin's new book Poke the Box was published just 15 days ago and is already #46 on the Amazon best-seller list. After reading his last book, Linchpin, and following Godin's blog, I highly recommend his book if you want to figure out how to make a living in this post-industrial era of online networking. Pick up a copy here.
