"I received my book order today. I devoured the entire book this evening. I could not put it down. My emotion, excitement, and energy built as I read. The book is remarkable. And in the spirit of the wisdom you share, I am expressing gratitude that you created it and yes, that you shipped it.... I received (12) copies.
I will share 2 copies with my two beautiful daughters, 19 and 22, just finding their way in this world. I will share 3 copies with young women I currently mentor. I will share with my dear friend (best friend of my deceased mom) who at 78 still has so much art and love to share in the world. I will share it with a friend who has lost her confidence and given in to a corporate job we both know she hates. I will share this book with the principal of my girls' former high school (2 copies) just for him to give to the kids that could use a nudge to follow their dreams. I will save a copy and carry it in my briefcase, because someday, I will unexpectedly meet someone who might benefit from it and I want to have it handy. The last copy I will keep - by my desk - dog eared and visible for times I need a nudge to keep writing that book. Thank you, Seth."
"If there is such a thing as a 'rule book,' for a time where the rules don't matter, What To Do When It's Your Turn is it. It's an easy book to read with great design, bold colors illustrations and images. It is a book that clearly communicates that it is your turn and you need to act...now."

"Seth Godin is unlike any other writer, and 'What to do when it's your turn' is unlike any other book. Instead of simply reading the book front to back, I found myself compelled to jump around - from one section to another, from spread to spread. This latest 'maga-book' is a new way to absorb Seth's wisdom and a remarkable way to share his thought provoking ideas."

"Received my 12 copies yesterday. Picked one up to peruse and 90 minutes later finished the last page. Of all of the things that MUST be done today, What To Do When Its Your Turn managed to bump them down in priority page by page. I feel like investing that time was the very BEST thing I could have done for all those who look to me for some measure of leadership. Seth was a particularly timely gift to me today :)"

"My books arrived yesterday!!! I already have 6 of them packaged up to send to some great women who are figuring out if this is their time. It's perfect for them! I was poring over it last night and just enjoying the words, the images, and the provocations. Thanks again, Seth Godin! Keep it coming!!!"

"I got my books today! Starting with the cover... amazingly soft paper. I've had the books less than 10 minutes and already know - this is a winner.
How did it change me? Gives me confidence to 'just do it'. I will be giving one to my boss, a university marketing professor, and those in dire need of the Yertle story."

"If you're second-guessing *what to do* about the resistance, then please, join me in reading this. It's a modern manual on what to do when you feel that psychic pain that comes while creating change. After reading it, you'll know what to do about the pain, and I think you might be willing to give it all you've got."
"I loved the second book, what a treat! The cover can be used as a bookmark, loved that. Loved the organization: I read a bit, write about it in my journal and read a bit the next day!
Janice Haagensen Collett
"WOW - for anyone needing a push to overcome the fear of the first step, here it is. I agree with Seth, making a ruckus is the path of Love."

I once had the experience of a fighter/attack jet fly very low over me faster than the speed of sound. It was really strange because I saw the jet approach but there was no sound. It flew over me, still no sound. And then BOOM - the sound finally arrived.
I've found reading Seth Godin's books are sort of like that. I don't quite get the full force of them until after afterward. And then they hit me - like a sonic boom.
This book is no different. Somehow Seth has hacked into the subconsciousness of anyone who has dreamed about trying something different or as he says "make a ruckus."
It could be starting a business, a blog, making a career change or anything that has an element of fear and uncertainty. Particularly if it's the fear of what other people will say. Or the fear of failing.
This book addresses fears. It will inspire you to make that big jump RIGHT NOW. It inspired me to start my podcast.
And I know this sounds weird but this particular book reminded me of the first time I parachuted out of a plane when I was in the Army. It was noisy, disorienting and maybe a little bit frightening. But there was an Army sergeant (called a jump master) standing by the door who was screaming at you when it was your turn to jump. Go! Go! Go! And I went. And you know what? Everything turned out OK.
The only difference is that in his book, Seth doesn't scream at you. He reasons with you. He encourages you. He tells you you'll be better for the experience and that the only thing you'll regret is not going for it.
