2.0 out of 5 stars Not Rugged. Crap to set up. Hard to use, 27 Mar 2013
dont buy this product. This product looks rugged but it is not. the aluminium is very thin and the 'rugged' orange case is too thin and flimsy. It is painful to set up. it doesnt always allow you to see files on a new computer without a restart (imagine you are at a client meeting and you have to restart their system just to grab a small file from the drive) You would think that the makers of drives would realise that most people just want a drive to drop files on. They want to use it like a large memory stick. They dont want your half baked software that controls the drive or other complications. Also i had to ring their customer service to help me set it up ( that alone is crazy) and that was painful dealing with them too. They want you to sign up just to help you get it working. It nearly drove me mad! The drive works ok and is fairly quick but dont buy this. Look elsewhere.

2.0 out of 5 stars Should be Sales Focused, 23 Oct 2012
This book is indeed full of useful information and worth reading...But there is a major flaw. It is Marketing focused and it should be Sales focused. Sales puts money in the bank. Marketing alone can drain it. Its been an expensive lesson for me.! Dont make the same one. Buy a book on how to implement an effective sales system as well as buying this one. Read this one second. Marketing should be a support to an effective sales system. It doesnt put it that way.There is no mention of sales pipeline management which is one of the most important things your business needs. I also think it is written in a very generic way. Its not really a guide. It just says something about each possible area you could explore. Having said all that, i still enjoyed it and learned some things too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sponsored by Electrolux?, 20 May 2012
This book is ok but there an awful lot of products from electrolux in it. Also there is not much info on each product. They have put a page of text next to each product image but it is simply the same description in three different languages! I think thats a bit cheeky. There are also quite a few 'future concepts' which are just fantasy. So overall I would say its just ok. You could just read a few magazines.
