Book Rapper Thinks…
When Seth writes you’ve got to take note.
Or at least I do.
When he publishes a new book,
I always get emails from people wanting me to RAP it so they don’t have to read it.
To be cool and up with the RAP pack, you need to know what Seth says.
So I dutifully grabbed a copy of Linchpin and started reading.
And, I’m even more impressed than usual.
This is Seth’s best.
The best of his best sellers.
That’s the biggest RAP I can offer!
PS: Personally, it’s great confirmation that Book Rapper is on the right career path. Art > Gift > Freedom. I’m enjoying the gift phase.
