    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"
    "A must read for all entrepreneurs"
    Overall

    If there is a required reading list for entrepreneurs, this book should be at the top.

  • The Art of Public Speaking

    This book by Dale Carnegie is as true and helpful today as when it was written almost a century ago. Listen, practice and succeed! It's a "must listen" for anyone who feels they have something valuable to say but is not quite sure how to go about saying it.Say the name "Dale Carnegie" and How to Win Friends and Influence People usually comes to mind. What is not as well known is that Carnegie was a professor of public speaking and that, over the years, this book has been just as popular.

    "Said in 12 hours what could have been done in 2"
    Overall

    I was pretty disappointed. Though there is clearly good information in this book, it was lost in the hours (yes hours) of quotes from speeches and books. Though it is necessary to have these quotes, you don't need a quote to go on for 10 minutes to get a point across. The same goes for this book. Get to the point! I traditionally go with unabridged titles, thinking I'm going to get more helpful information. I think I learned a valuable lesson. If you're thinking of listening to this book, look for an abridged version.

    Do you have a hobby you wish you could indulge in all day? An obsession that keeps you up at night? Now is the perfect time to take that passion and make a living doing what you love. In Crush It! Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion, Gary Vaynerchuk shows you how to use the power of the Internet to turn your real interests into real businesses.

    Martin says: "Gary delivers!"
    "Let Gary get in your head"
    Overall

    This is an absolute must have. For those of you who purchased the print version, you ain't heard nothin' yet. In this (unabridged) audio copy, Gary includes bonus material not available in the print version. This is by far the best money I've ever spent on a book.
