Book review: The Icarus Deception, by Seth GodinAbout a decade ago, I was introduced to Seth Godin's work by one of my students, who noted that our subversive ideas eg, on marketing, education and culture overlapped substantially. He was right. What this polite student did not say is that they are expressed so much more compellingly and effectively by Godin.

King Minos and Daedalus had great understanding at first, but their relationships started deteriorating at some point; there are several versions explaining this sudden change, although the most common one is that Daedalus was the one who advised Princess Ariadne to give Theseus the thread that helped him come out from the infamous Labyrinth, after killing the Minotaur. The Labyrinth was a maze built by Daedalus; King Minos wanted a building suitable to imprison the mythical monster Minotaur, and according to the myth, he used to imprison his enemies in the labyrinth, making sure that they would be killed by the monster.
