There’s an interesting reading list for 2012 suggested by Seth Godin.
The first one on the list is ‘Steal Like An Artist’ by Austin Kleon. Out of curiosity I looked for and found a review. I like concise and visually-attractive books that get you thinking so I’ll give it a read when it comes out in the UK in April.
In the above image (from the book), it’s illuminating how using different words can be so effective and powerful in getting the message over. Just that point alone made me realise that it’s good to pepper conversations with such words if you want to encourage people to think a little differently!
