At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

I've listened to this book so many times that I bought it on Audible even though I had already pirated it months ago.

Make no mistake; this is no "SEO for dummies". Rather, SEO Like I'm 5 is the ultimate beginner's training system for forward-thinking businesses and entrepreneurs that will get you found on Google, social media, and blogs. You will also learn how to attract followers and leads like a magnet by building a vibrant community around your content, which both users and search engines will love, and leveraging untapped, high-growth platforms and social networks.

A must read for anyone wanting to know more about SEO. Even if it's just a resource guide, this is worth the buy. Now I have buckets of websites and services to research. I'll have to listen to this at least 2 more times to get everything. Wonderful book

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, one in nine Americans works in sales. Every day more than 15 million people earn their keep by persuading someone else to make a purchase. But dig deeper and a startling truth emerges: Yes, one in nine Americans works in sales. But so do the other eight. Whether we’re employees pitching colleagues on a new idea, entrepreneurs enticing funders to invest, or parents and teachers cajoling children to study, we spend our days trying to move others.

This is not just a selling book. This book covered so much about the human condition in the post Internet revolution
