What the Critics Say

“The revolution is inside, not just out. This audio book makes it perfectly clear that social media is not a substitute for TV or PR. Instead, it demands that you change who you are and what you do, not how you talk about it.” (Seth Godin, author of Linchpin)

    "Get the Authors Narrating"

    This is a great book with amazing value packed ideas. I am struggling to listen to it because the narrator feels like running fingers down a chalk board. I would much prefer to hear the passion and engagement of the authors. Were they too busy to record this? Or didn't think they could do a "professional" job? Well I bet they can.

    PLEASE consider a REDO!

    "great content, awful narrator"
    What didn’t you like about Erik Synnestvedt’s performance?

    i'm only a few minutes into the recording. the book comes highly recommended by my professional colleagues and I own the book but was hoping to listen to it, but the narrator reads with a overly serious and dramatic tone, carrying syllables for far too long which is extremely annoying, and chopping up sentences. Just read the sentences clearly, intonate, and pause when it is natural. Erik's performance is just not natural or easy to listen to. It is driving me mad. I can't listen to this book.
