Obsolete

Some readings seemed obsolete. I found 2 first ones really interesting and up to date. The rest was just nice to know.

Great Content

As an entrepreneur this series of books provides great insight into strategic marketing best practices in just the right amount of information. Using the audible bookmark function I was able to flag specific parts of the series that I found particularly valuable and would like to revisit in more depth in the future.

good book but not groundbreaking

I enjoyed the book but feel that the majority of the content is for marketing beginners that are early in their career. For that listener, it has good foundation

redundant

There was quite a bit of duplicated information, as well redundant information. while some of the content was insightful, I can not give it a good recommendation.

Dated and rather basic

Many sections feel like they were written over 10 years ago. A lot of content is basic truisms. Low value for the time it takes to go through it.

Really basic and boring.

Really weak on marketing methodology and practices. it gets very boring at times and even politically correct here and there.

Good crash course, a lil dated

Good crash course on marketing articles from ‘98-‘06 with one classic article from earlier. So it was a little dated by the time I listened to it in 2018, but a lot of the classic principles and evolutions of thinking was interesting.

Somewhat disappointing

Some good articles, but doesn't live up to billing of "10 must reads" on marketing. Outdated.

Some articles more interesting than others

I loved 4 of the 10 reads and found them very applicable to my role, whereas 6 of the 10 were older studies or less applicable to my role, so whilst interesting not completely relevant
