But how do you create a big moo, an insight so astounding that people can't help but remark on it, like digital TV recording (TiVo) or overnight shipping (FedEx), or the world's best vacuum cleaner (Dyson)? Godin worked with 32 of the world's smartest thinkers to answer this critical question. And the team, with the likes of Tom Peters, Malcolm Gladwell, Guy Kawasaki, Mark Cuban, Robyn Waters, Dave Balter, Red Maxwell, and Randall Rothenberg on board, created an incredibly useful audiobook that's fun to listen to and perfect for groups to share, discuss, and apply.
The Big Moo is a simple audiobook in the tradition of Fish and Don't Sweat the Small Stuff. Instead of lecturing you, it tells stories that stick to your ribs and light your fire. It will help you to create a culture that consistently delivers remarkable innovations.

Be remarkable? This isn't.
I know Seth is hugely popular, but I was disappointed with this book even though I loved All Marketers Are Liars (good book, poor title). It felt like a series of single sentence, pop, 'edicts of wisdom' that were suppose to transform my world upon hearing them (it's a tough act to sound like God AND be as creditable). His intro floats lots of names, but he used surprisingly few quoted statements. I feel Alan G. Robinson's Corporate Creativity was much better at explaining how to discover purple cows (which Seth now says is not enough to be 'remarkable'???).

Although I find Seth Godin's writings useful and always provocative, this concept may sound appealing but the audio version is a fairly bland collection of forgettable sound-bite sized statements. Nothing stood out or was memorable in any way. Godin's more recent works are definitely more worthwhile.

Great transformational thinking
I loved listening to Seth Godin in this audio primer for out of the box thinking, creating the big ideas, and boldly putting them forth to create the 'Big Moo' in the marketplace. His message about being remarkable is indeed more relevant than ever in today's society. I ordered copies of the book for my whole team. It will change your motivation and significantly increase your contribution. - Mark Emanuelson

This is a fascinating audiobook I was enthralled from beginning to end. It made me view issues from completely different angle. I would recommend this to everybody - you will take away for it something valuable. Buy it and see - you will not be disappointed
