Yes, V is for Vulnerable and the letter Z begged me to enjoy a tidbit of Life Outside the Comfort Zone as I read it as a personal challenge to learn and apply--whipping up an old recipe that was new to a not-the-kitchen-queen me. This really was a stretch for me but in the end I learned I must not take shortcuts in my creativity.
I learned through this creative endeavor that just like a child I must recite the ABCs, again and again, in order for the end result of my artistry to become a masterpiece worthy of sharing with the world at large.
I have re-read this gem of a book repeatedly, its words from Seth Godin and its illustrations by Hugh MacLeod a remarkable tool for adults, filled with basic knowledge designed for creative me to to apply to that which I create and publish for your reading and viewing pleasure.
I highly recommend V is for Vulnerable as a treasure for all grownups to read and apply to their creative life.
Probably the neatest picture (though not too impressive) is J as in JOY. I think subconsciously I may have waited to see it. It’s not a big surprise that this comes from Seth Godin. He has new ideas. All in all it is an awesome, inspiring, book, pointing at feelings all of deal with. This book confirms that we are on the right track.
Highly recommended! 5 stars

Now I'm learning my new ABC's, representing a kind of checklist as I draw upon my childhood gifts of wonder and possibility and apply them to the art I'm creating as a senior citizen. I especially like the letter "I" which stands for initiative. As Seth so eloquently states, "Initiative is the privilege of picking yourself. You're not given initiative, you take it."
So, "Pick yourself", and pick up a copy of this neat book.
The artwork by High MacLeod is awesome and it has inspired me to doodle my own illustrations for my very own ABC's.
I received V is for Vulnerable as a part of my "Kickstarter" package for The Icarus Deception and I've since purchased additional copies to give to my colleagues (and grandchildren) who are also pursuing their art.
I bought this book on Kindle and the graphic part is very weak ... I guess the paper version honors much more the concept of the book.
On a content level ... yes, there are some nice quotes but following some people via Social Media gives me as much nice insights. So, I wouldn't recommend this book although I support both of them (see the start of my recommendation).
Next time, please, some more content ...
At times when I'm close to saturation. I always read his daily newsletter. although I admit sometimes I have to read it two or three times to really understand the subtle message
