I would skip this book. The author is clearly deep rooted in PR, so sooner or later everything goes back to PR. How PR is great, how PR builds brands, how PR helped his Hollywood client. This is one long and boring book only a PR man could love.
A comprehensive and fascinating look at the complex business of branding. Both theoretical and practical, yet easily comprehended.
Filled with anecdotes and examples of people and products and events that the listener can recall or recognize, if not visualize. It maintains a focus on the process, not the product.
Met my requirements and expectations.
Overall, the story wasn't bad.
Michael Levine himself or Malcolm Gladwell.
Only to stop listening to the book.
I did not enjoy this book. The narrator was annoying with dramatic pauses in the wrong places causing confusion rather than effect. He also spoke too fast. I can’t say I would recommend it.
I thought this book was a nice introduction into branding. I liked the ice cream example he used to frame his ideas. He never offered ground breaking ideas, but I like how he blends PR, Marketing, and advertising. Narration was easy to listen to.
"The Real Business of Branding & PR"
Practical , filled with multiple examples, A branded World by Michael Levine,is a good example of using seed principles across micro and macro businesses. If you want to understand the value of Public relations and branding ,If you want to copy and implement some of these success principles then listen to this Audio Book. What stands out and is really useful are the multiple examples used and Lloyd's tone of voice in emphasizing the importance of the deliberate principles used to convert branding and PR to your business goals. I used 2 principles in an early morning meeting the next day after listening to this book and yes my client was impressed and increased our project budget!.
