V is for Vulnerable

Life Outside the Comfort Zone: An ABC for Grownups




A full-color ABC book for grownups, with a powerful message about doing great work

V is for Vulnerable looks and feels like a classic picture book. But it's not for kids, it's for hardworking
adults. It highlights twenty-six of Seth Godin's principles about treating your work as a form of art, with
illustrations by acclaimed cartoonist Hugh MacLeod. A sample:

-A is for Anxiety, which is experiencing failure in advance. Tell yourself enough vivid stories about the worst possible outcome and you'll soon come to believe them. Worry is not preparation, and anxiety
doesn't make you better.

-F is for Feedback, which can be either a crutch or a weapon. Use it to make your work smaller, safer and more likely to please everyone (and fail in the long run). Or use it as a lever, to further push you to
embrace what you fear.

This is unlike any previous Godin book and makes a great gift, both for loyal fans and those who've never read him before.
