This is roughly my 30th download and my first review.
Cattle farmers don't paint their cows purple, but the author of this book would seem to suggest that they should. (See Seth Godin's Purple Cow.) Unlike the author of this book, I believe that the purpleness of the cow (the mojo of the product) is rooted in the product's value proposition, not in its superficial promotion.
I recently read Lean Start Up, Delivering Happiness, and Flow. Those books reflect what I believe business is about, which is creating value intelligently and with high integrity. Those authors are intelligent and mature, and they have clear ideas that are sufficiently novel.
This book is about creating hype without regard to creating value. And the tone is repulsive.
