In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.
Others may have their opinions on the narration, but I didn't have any idea what to expect, really.. It was my first audiobook and the first of a series that made last summer fly by in a hurry!

After about 45 seconds, the familiarity of Aiden Gillen's voice kicked in and I knew I was in for a treat. Little Finger is one of my favorite characters on Game of Thrones and it's like listening to his game plan on battle strategy and conquest.
I've listened to it several times and look forward to listening several more times.

Guerilla Marketing is nothing short of a wealth of information and strategies to take the average novice (like me), plant the seeds of guerrilla marketing mastery and provide enough insight to water that seed. From that point, its up to the readers imagination, intuition and instinct to make that seed grow.
At times, the information can be exhausting, sometimes a little too extensive. However, its important to know just how far market research goes to provide information to businesses that need to know certain information about all typesnof potential customers.
I bought the book to help me think up ways to promote and take care of my band Into Existence. We are a Metal band out of Kansas City, MO.

If you keep thinking about how to apply the information and strategies in Guerrilla Marketing, this book will help you out.
