    "the headline is the most important part"

    I listened to this book while driving and was expecting to hear a slow over complicated book. I finished listening to this book in complete awe, I feel as if I have learned years knowledge and am now equipped to use that knowledge. Thank you for the delightful book.

    "But it!"

    This book gives you everything you need. It gets the ideas flowing and it gives a path to follow. I recommend reading twice. You'll get even more out of it the second time around.

    "Fantastic"

    Like other reviewers on here, I'm not even halfway through this book and have already generated so many new business ideas that I had to pause and recommend it. If you own a business GET THIS BOOK.

    "Thoroughly enjoyed it."

    Very interesting book. It felt like a motivational book with suggestions on advertising to back it. Narrator did a great job of giving life to the material as well.

    "Solid"
    Where does Free Marketing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a book that holds it's own. Stuffed full of great insights and tips for entrepreneurs and independent minded brand building thinkers.


    What other book might you compare Free Marketing to and why?

    This book goes toe to toe with some of the modern juggernauts in the category it doesn't push theory it uses true tactics and strategies to make a difference.


    Any additional comments?

    I've journeyed back to this book several times after first reading it and will continue to do so.
