By: Seth Godin
What is the Topic or Central Idea?
It talks about succeeding by knowing when to quit, what isn’t working and when to push through the dip on things that really matter to you.

Big huge fan of all Seth Godin books.
Did this book hook you immediately or take you time to get into?
It’s a teeny, tiny book, spend an afternoon reading it, and change your outlook.
Do you have a favorite quote or passage in the book?
“We fail when we get distracted by tasks we don’t have the guts to quit.” You never thinking of it taking guts to quit…yet it often does.
What did you learn and take away from this book?
This book and phrase turns quitting on its head…we are brought up to think that quitting is easy, sometimes it’s the hardest thing you will ever do. But it shows you when it’s the right time to push through the dip.
