    What does it take to turn ideas into action? What are the elements of a perfect pitch? How do you win the war for talent? How do you establish a brand without bucks? These are some of the issues everyone faces when starting or revitalizing any undertaking, and Guy Kawasaki, former marketing maven of Apple Computer, provides the answers.

    Story

    While it was a decent listen and I don't regret the time spent (albeit I listen during my commute), it wasn't something I gained a lot out of. The book is written much like a horoscope; keep the concept wide, provide few specifics and everyone can find a way to say, "yeah, that makes sense." Kawasaki does a decent job of discussing start-ups and how to get the ball rolling, but I would argue that he could have achieved much more if he would have targeted a niche audience and written from that perspective. He opted to increase sales rather than reach a target...

    I'm sorry. I've never written a review for an audiobook and rarely take the time to write a review unless I am concerned for other safety or significant investment. Out of any review I've ever done this one is by far the most significant!

    Brian Tracy is by far a brilliant salesman and knows his material, but he should NEVER record anything on tape; ever! He sounds like he is constantly licking his lips, drinking a slurpy or has a dog who sitting next to him drooling over a box of treats. It's horrific. I simply couldn't take it after 10 minutes. I had to turn it off... I've listened to over 150 audiobooks and have mustered through the good, bad and mediocre. I just couldn't take this one. I wanted to tell him to take his mouth away from the microphone, take a drink and stop eating his pudding cup. PLEASE, save yourself and just read the text.
