He is easily my favorite business book author of all time and to have him here is nothing short of a thrill for me.
Seth is the author of 17 bestsellers (soon to be 18 no doubt) that have been translated into 35 languages. He’s the founder of several companies, a member of the Direct Marketing Hall of Fame and an influential speaker around the world.
He writes about treating people with respect, the changing economy and ideas that spread. Mostly, he creates projects, many of which end up failing.
