Don't Just Roll the Dice - A Usefully Short Guide to Software Pricing
by Neil Davidson

Price: 8.46

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't just roll the dice, 8 Dec 2009
The book is absolutely unique in its ratio content / size. There is a lot of marketing wisdom in these 80 pages. It's very easy to read, entertaining, yet extremely useful. There are many practical examples, all of them well selected and fitting real situations you must face when you bring a product to the market.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and authentic, 5 Mar 2006
This review is from: Hard to Swallow (Paperback)
Hard to swallow is an extraordinary interesting adventure of an immature westerner in India. Since the first page you start to worry about what would happen to Max, if he really arrives to accomplish the crazy adventure, he’s committed to with a friend he met during his travelling in Asia and Australia. And your tension grows from page to page. I perceived a powerful anti drug message given by this to be drug smuggler, which happens to be the protagonist of the book.
The description of the atmosphere of India, its cities, landscapes and people is extremely vivid. The author reflects perfectly the typical feelings of superiority, so characteristic for most of the people educated in western civilization, in their confrontation with the rest of the world. The description of their reaction to the lack of comfort and their difficulties to perform in an environment, driven by totally different mental and social parameters belongs to the most important values of this book.
The language is simple and sharp and the book is full of fresh and graceful comparisons, many times sarcastic but always hitting the point. To me a “Hard to swallow” is absolutely worth to read, concise and convincing, exciting and authentic.
