News & Opinion: The 800-CEO-READ Business Book Awards, Innovation & Creativity
The 800-CEO-READ Business Book Awards have been decided upon, and in the Innovation & Creativity category, Seth Godin's wonderful new book, The Icarus Deception: How High Will You Fly? (published this month by Portfolio along with two companion books—V is for Vulnerable and Whatcha Gonna Do with That Duck?) takes the top prize.
“Entrepreneurship, customer service, invention,
technology, connection, leadership, and a
dozen others. These are the new performing arts,
the valuable visual arts, the essential personal arts.”
The Icarus Deception, page 12
