Book Giveaway – The Icarus Deception

Julie and I love books and we love introducing others to good books almost as much as we like reading them ourselves. Well today we get to not only introduce you to a good book, but we’re going to give away 5 copies.


The book – The Icarus Deception by Seth Godin.

The Icarus Dception

Seth launched this book as a Kickstarter Campaign back in the summer and we couldn’t resist backing it and getting a few extra copies to give away. They arrived shortly before the holidays, but in the craziness of time-off and celebrating, we never decided how we would give them away.

Well, we decided and today is the day. Here’s what you need to do for a chance to win a copy.

1 – Leave a comment and share the book that helped you the most in 2012.

2 – RT or share this post via Facebook or Twitter.

That’s it – pretty easy.

I’ll choose 5 random winners on Saturday and have you email me your contact info so we can get those books out in the mail to you next week.

Thanks for reading the blog.

  1. I really enjoyed “Simple Secrets to a Happy Life” by Luci Swindoll ( as well as “Share the Bounty” ( which really encouraged me in the Christian roots of hospitality. 🙂

    • Meghan- I’m going to have to check out Share the Bounty. It sounds really good. Lucy Swindoll is also a great read, although, I have not read the book you mentioned.

  2. Great by choice, Jim Collins. Changed my year, changed how I approach working.

  3. Ben Brockway says:

    I think the book that has impacted me the most in 2012 is probably Forgotten God by Francis Chan. It’s such a great book.

  4. I think the book that impacted me most last year was probably Raving Fans by Ken Blanchard. I know, it’s an older one, but when I read it a lot of things gelled for me in terms of leading a team.

  5. So difficult picking just one…

    But I’d say The Gifts of Imperfection, by Brene Brown.

  6. My favorite book is Book Yourself Solid by Michael Port. It’s actually my favorite business related book yet to date. There are a ton of actionable steps to get you where you want to be. It’s one I keep going back to.

  7. Kevin Perrine says:

    Wow, that’s is a tough question. I’d probably have to say “Linchpin” by Seth Godin. Godin, along with other events in my life, has impacted me, and my family, to step into a lifestyle of freedom and independence.
