    A proven strategy for dominating markets developed over 15 years, Tuned In reveals the "secrets" that separate market leaders from followers and failures. It shows you how to stop wasting time and money trying to be innovative and start creating "resonators" - great products or services that people buy without thinking because they solve the problems they have and make their lives better.

    "Good Business Book"
    Overall

    This is a good business book. It is relevant in it's examples and it speaks well to those who are seeking insight from it. I compare it to "4 Hour Work Week (T. Ferriss)." in that it doesn't just tell you theories with inspiring success stories. It tells you what to do! I can see many of the strategies taught in this book, being "handbook" material for one's business.

  • Outliers: The Story of Success

    Story

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    S Prabhu says: "Excellent book; well adapted for the audio format"
    "If You Like Gladwell..."
    Overall

    If you like Malcolm Gladwell's previous books, you will like this one. I also find that his narration adds to his books. I enjoyed this one. Much like Tipping Point, it changes the way I see others; especially when observing their success.

    Thomas says: "More Biography, Less Business"
    "More Biography, Less Business"
    Overall

    I bought this book in a batch purchase of business books. I was looking for inspirations & ideas. To be honest, I got sucked in by the title, thinking it was a business book. Its a biography.
    Overall, there were some small learning moments for me, but most of my experience with this book felt like a man politely boasting of his very successful career.
    At first, I was discouraged by the amount of biography over business ideas. However, when I did a little homework on the book, I realized it was more of a bio so I adjusted my expectations. Then the book teased me with business "nuggets" admidst all of the stories. I say "teased" because a chapter will start off by telling a story that feels like a backdrop for a good business lesson. However, instead of pointing out how his struggles & successes can apply to you and me, the chapter would just end with an, "...and that's how I was successful with that business."
