This book is a great way to "warm-up" or get in the "mood" for a Brainstorming session. The examples are solid and practical in most business segments (Retail, Service, Professional, etc). The reading was also very good.
This book exceeded by far my expectations! I am a young entrepreneur trying to grow a 50+ year old family business. I hung onto every word of the author, taking detailed notes every step of the way. I started implementing the tactics suggested and know that we will find great success with the important information shared in this book.
I highly recommend this book to any entrepreneur to consider the powerful impact these concepts may have on their business once properly applied.

some original content with well-defined strategies. Some attention to how to generate referrals as an INDIVIDUAL, rather than an organization.
no, jut this author -
Being something other than a series of what other organizations have done, perhaps some concrete steps that are measurable and reliab
If I were totally clueless about business and somehow lied my way into a marketing job
nice package and hype. Definitely know how to market
This is my new "go-to" book for background noise... getting ready for work, driving short distances, etc and it never fails to inspire a new idea or thought!!
Content, narration and flow is excellent. It generated a ton of original ideas for programs my company will be implementing. This book has a very unique and up-to-date take on something that's been basic business for all of time. Use the bookmarking feature and/or take notes!!
It felt too much like a bunch of random thoughts or Tweetable case studies. There wasn't much strategy, or technique, just a bunch of tactics that may or may not work depending on if you've figured out everything else you'd need to make them stick.
You get the sense this author wrote a really good book or two a while ago and now he is riding his name. There is some helpful material in there but realistically could be presented in 50% of the time as he seems to get of course and talk about things like how to run a business.
Very well written-read...significant amount of material.
Needing a guide to go along with these great ideas-suggestions. Will definitely be listening to the book several more times!
This book is more of an infomercial for his services than anything
No but I wont buy his books
Dont bother buying. You can find better information on the web or in magazines such as Inc or Entrepreneur.
It was very generalised and repetitive from chapter to chapter for me. I started other books just to have a break. I wouldn't sit through that again in a hurry. I think the print version may be easier to skim through.
Stop repeating things across chapters.
Reader was OK.
Don't expect anything more than you could read for free on marketing blogs. It's OK but I didn't think it was anything brilliant. Depends what you need to achieve - it can motivate those who need a reason to try new things.
