    To market your business, reach new customers, and create long-lasting loyalty, you need one indispensable element: CONTENT. Whether it’s bite-sized tweets that allow you to forge relationships on Twitter, blog posts that give your readers must-have advice, ebooks or white papers that engage (and don’t bore), videos that share the human side of your company, interactive webinars that deliver a valuable learning experience, or podcasts that can be downloaded and listened to on the fly (and more!) . . .

    Story

    I give it one star since it’s a book about content. I normally give more just because I acknowledge the efforts of writing a book…
    However, this book claims to be about how to create killer blogs etc.
    For the first 2 ½ hours, the authors repeat in many different synonyms and forms why you should write content, why content is king, etc.
    This for me was a complete waste of time since if I buy a book on how to create good content, I don’t need to be convinced about the benefits of good content. The authors acknowledge that and yet go on to talk on and on and on about why it is important to produce content.
    Eventually, when they do start giving some concrete substance, they go against what they preach – they say “get to the point” but they’re obviously unable to do that. Complete chapters could be summarized in one bullet point, and long minutes of listening brings no added value.
    I was surprised to see to the book was published in late 2011 – I thought they might be “overselling” the needs to have content as it was less obvious to people back in 2008.
    In short – not worth my time.

    In Sisters in War, journalist Christina Asquith tells the story of the Iraq war and its aftermath through the eyes of four women who survived it: Iraqi sisters Zia and Nunu, US reservist Heather Coyne, and Washington, D.C. women's rights activist Manal Omar. Asquith weaves their fascinating stories together to create a larger picture of women's experience in Iraq during the occupation....

    Story

    Don’t hesitate. This is probably one of the best books ever written about Iraq. I came across it as I was looking to read about the Iraq war, and decided to give it a chance. I was very lucky.
    The book follows the lives of four women in Iraq during the war and after it. Two of them are Iraqi and the other two are American. Throughout their life stories the reader is exposed to a lot of information about the war and the period following it – full of facts and emotions.
    This book presents many points of view on the topic – secular versus religious point of view, pro-Bush administration and contra Bush administration, Sunni and Shia, and more. By doing so the book achieves a more complete point of view on the subject, rarely achieved before.
    I found the first 2 to 3 chapters a little harder to connect with, but after that the book completely absorbed me and I couldn’t stop listening.
    A highly recommended read/listen for any man or woman. Both me and my boyfriend enjoyed it very much.

  • The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives

    In this irreverent and illuminating audiobook, acclaimed writer and scientist Leonard Mlodinow shows us how randomness, chance, and probability reveal a tremendous amount about our daily lives, and how we misunderstand the significance of everything from a casual conversation to a major financial setback. As a result, successes and failures in life are often attributed to clear and obvious causes, when in actuality they are more profoundly influenced by chance.

    This book does take some time to get in to. You may be tempted to stop listening after the first 20 mins or so, but trust me, hang on, since it gets better and better.

    I was delighted with the book. I feel like I have learnt a lot, even about some concepts that I have already encountered before. And it was an enjoyable learning experience!

    If you are taking a course in statistics, this book is a must for you, since it will shed some light and interest onto the course material and will help you get a clearer and fuller picture.

    It can also leave you with a lot of hope- a lot of the the phenomenons in this world are random- thus almost anything is possible...

    For over three decades, the great inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil has been one of the most respected and provocative advocates of the role of technology in our future. In his classic The Age of Spiritual Machines, he argued that computers would soon rival the full range of human intelligence at its best. Now he examines the next step in this inexorable evolutionary process: the union of human and machine.

    Story

    This book is amazing, yet intense. It has some parts that can be very "scientific" to the humble reader.

    It is ok to let your mind wander while the narrator goes into formulas and other math that you may find difficult. Don't let it ruin your pleasure since this book encompasses some mind opening concepts that you wouldn't find anywhere else.

    In the age of Google, your customers are searching. Will they find you? In today’s searching world, customers turn to online search engines first. Yet many companies simply don’t realize acquiring customers from search engines should be a core business strategy. Instead, they usually focus on narrow goals, such as boosting page rankings. These oversights leave a huge channel for engaging with potential customers largely untapped.

    Joe says: "Good for someone who wants to see the big picture"
    "Fascinating book"

    A great introduction to the power of google in todays marketing. Highly recommanded.

    Good flow, very interesting.
