This marketing classic has been expanded to include new commentary and a bonus book: The 11 Immutable Laws of Internet Branding.
Smart and accessible, The 22 Immutable Laws of Branding is the definitive text on branding, pairing anecdotes about some of the best brands in the world, like Rolex, Volvo, and Heineken, with the signature savvy of marketing gurus Al and Laura Ries. Combining The 22 Immutable Laws of Branding and The 11 Immutable Laws of Internet Branding, this book proclaims that the only way to stand out in today’s marketplace is to build your product or service into a brand - and provides the step-by-step instructions you need to do so.
The 22 Immutable Laws of Branding also tackles one of the most challenging marketing problems today: Branding on the Web. The Rieses divulge the controversial and counterintuitive strategies and secrets that both small and large companies have used to establish Internet brands. The 22 Immutable Laws of Branding is the essential primer on building a category-dominating, world-class brand.

Maybe, only if they had no understanding of branding at all.
Made some effort focusing toward small businesses. Almost ever single case study in the book is geared toward large corporations, but I highly doubt the core readership is made up of corporate CEOs and/or Brand Managers.
It was good, but I am tired of corporate book voice overs always sounding robotic.
This book is vastly out of date. Even the portion that relates to the internet is out of date, and I think many of the "laws" they present need to be looked at again, because they have been proven wrong by the success of smaller, more modern brands.
Also, some of the laws talked about outright conflict with each other. It's hard to know which way to turn with the ideas in this book because they seem to be incongruous.
The insights are indeed invaluable.
Examples are dated. An updated version would have been great.
He brings the book to life. I love his narration (what would you call it for non-fiction books?)...I started searching for books he read.
Yes, at times some anecdotes or examples did make me laugh!
I just like to read good books that help with personal growth. hmu on FB: Trae Dungy
I would listen again because there are jewels here that transcend time.
Even though some of the players in the book have changed, you can clearly see how the rules stayed the same.
I think the narration did ok with the story and informative pacing.
This is a book that deserves to be revisited
Any time you see Al and or Laura Ries, your in for a treat.
generally a great audio book. i enjoyed listening to it. however it has some wrong predictions like sayimg that search eng8ne willl lose their importance or anazon is wrong in extending its business to non-book stuff.
narrator was awesome.
The main body gets 10/10 but the last two chapters on the Internet are out dated. Still an excellent listen
