"Powerful and compelling." (Linnea Johnson, Director, Unilever Consumer Services)
"Informative, energetic, and entertaining, this is a marvelous argument for corporate responsibility and accountability, interesting to laypeople and instructive for executives." (Publishers Weekly)
When listening to this book I literally had to check that I wasn't listening to one of the other books I have recently listened to like Inbound Marketing or Marketing to the Social Web. It has the same stories. I think the narrator must be the same which can't help much. I am giving it 3 stars because the information is decent, but not original in my opinion. It is mostly stories about customer interaction and another reference to "Dell Hell" and other similar stories.
