  • The New Rules of Retail: Competing in the World's Toughest Marketplace

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 53 mins)
    • By Robin Lewis, Michael Dart
    • Narrated By Brian O'Neill
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    The retail world is undergoing a fundamental transformation. Rapidly evolving technology, globalization, and a saturated marketplace offer consumers instant access to thousands of equally compelling products and services, creating unprecedented levels of expectation. The impact of these changes is so profound that 50 percent of today's retailers and consumer companies will not survive it....

    Roy says: "Wider Appeal than the Title Suggests"
    "Good overview of the evolution of Retail"
    Would you listen to The New Rules of Retail again? Why?

    Yes, there are always new, interesting facts that you did not pick up the first time.

    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    It is easy to listen to and easy to follow - even if you are driving ... You learn as you go.

    What does Brian O'Neill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    You can process it much faster (general audiobook advantage).

    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    Nothing. He is good!

    Any additional comments?

    Very good book. If I had to say, what could be better: I'd prefer it to be a little more concise in some parts and go a little bit deeper in the operational business (e.g. talk about useful KPIs etc). But for an overview regarding the development of Retail and to understand the most important things to win in Retailing, on a high level, this is great.

  • Engage!: The Complete Guide for Brands and Businesses to Build, Cultivate, and Measure Success in the New Web

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 50 mins)
    • By Brian Solis, Ashton Kutcher (foreword)
    • Narrated By Tom Zingarelli

    Social media has democratized influence, forever changing the way businesses communicate with customers and the way customers affect the decisions of their peers. With platforms like Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook, anyone can now find and connect with others who share similar interests, challenges, and beliefs - creating communities that shape and steer the perception of brands. Without engagement in these communities, we miss major opportunities to shape our marketing messages. However, use of the tools does not guarantee that people will listen.

    Carol says: "Great book, and Tom Zingarelli is a great narrator"
    "Difficult to absorb"
    Would you try another book from Brian Solis and Ashton Kutcher (foreword) and/or Tom Zingarelli?

    No. His style does not work well as a audiobook. Might be better as a normal book.

    What do you think your next listen will be?


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tom Zingarelli’s performances?


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I stopped listening, since it required 100% attention, and I generally prefer audio books over normal books, since I can listen while driving etc...

    Any additional comments?

    The book seems to entail a wealth of data and might be perfect with a highlighter in the hand to work through the book. It is very tedious to listen to though, I did not make it through the 2nd chapter.
