    What do Starbucks and JetBlue and KrispyKreme and Apple and DutchBoy and Kensington and Zespri and Hard Candy have that you don't? How do they continue to confound critics and achieve spectacular growth, leaving behind former tried-and true brands to gasp their last? Face it, the checklist of tired P's marketers have used for decades to get their product noticed - Pricing, Promotion, Publicity, to name a few - aren't working anymore.

    Sunny says: "Excellent"
    "Kinda like the Blue Ocean"
    Overall

    i liked the examples shown in the books which explains how the tips have been applied to reality, also clarifies that safe is risky in a way that sticks. It overfills with information at certain times but overall is good.

    In 1990, IBM had its most profitable year ever. By 1993, the company was on a watch list for extinction, victimized by its own lumbering size, an insular corporate culture, and the PC era IBM had itself helped invent.

    Arthur Held says: "Moderate Start, Picks up FAST!"
    "a Must have!!!"
    Overall

    The book has great insights into IBM past and now days culture, it makes you realize that even big enterprises such as IBM can get to a low point if you don`t take care of tha basic things, as well it let`s you know what it takes to grow at an amazing rate. Great story and info. Narrating is neat and great

    >. Orange Beach, Alabama is a simple town filled with simple people. But like all humans on the planet, the good folks of Orange Beach have their share of problems - marriages teetering on the brink of divorce, young adults giving up on life, business people on the verge of bankruptcy, as well as the many other obstacles that life seems to dish out to the masses. Fortunately, when things look the darkest - a mysterious man named Jones has a miraculous way of showing up.

    Eric says: "not so much"
    "Good thoughts but Repetitive"
    Overall

    The main character appears as a know it all kind of guy which annoyed me all the way. The book has some helpful flashes that could have been summarized into 30 minutes. Dont waste a credit on it, better pay for it.

    From Andre Agassi, one of the most beloved athletes in history and one of the most gifted men ever to step onto a tennis court, a beautiful, haunting autobiography. Agassi brings a near-photographic memory to every pivotal match and every relationship. Never before has the inner game of tennis and the outer game of fame been so precisely limned.

    Patrick says: "Just an Incredible Story!"
    "Nothing but OPEN !!!!"
    Overall

    Great book, a total inside of Agassi`s true feelings for the game as well as the honest story of a man whose failures and sucess made him one of the game`s greatest legends...... Great narration.... takes you in there and keeps you interested through 18 hours.

    The success of Starbucks is one of the most remarkable business stories in decades. Since 1987, the coffee merchant has grown from a single retail store on Seattle's waterfront to a company with more than 1,000 stores nationwide and a new one opening somewhere every business day. According to Fortune magazine, Starbucks "has changed everything...from our tastes to our language to the face of Main Street."

    Mark says: "High Powered Brew"
    "Money s Worth!!!!!"

    Why did crime in New York drop so suddenly in the mid-90s? How does an unknown novelist end up a best-selling author? Why is teenage smoking out of control, when everyone knows smoking kills? What makes TV shows like Sesame Street so good at teaching kids how to read? Why did Paul Revere succeed with his famous warning?

    it certainly makes you understand and appreciate the surroundings of things, the narrating is good and it keeps you interested.

    Few people lack confidence all the time, and many people are more confident with friends, or when practising a skill they know, such as working on a computer or cooking a meal. Yet, too often, these skills of confidence in everyday contexts may be dismissed as "that's nothing" or "that doesn't count" precisely because they are so familiar.

    jfhn says: "Right advice, but tedious narrator !!!!"
    "Right advice, but tedious narrator !!!!"
    Overall

    The content of the book shows a few examples on how to behave with confidence, but the narrator in this british accent makes it tedious and plain to follow
