5.0 out of 5 stars ... business books and this is up there among the best of them, 6 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read a lot of business books and this is up there among the best of them. It's highly practical, with step by step instructions of what to do to put your learning into practice. This is not a shortcut to success book but I'm sure with disciplined action this book will help you to build your profile and achieve the kind of results you want.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, 22 Oct. 2014

Robert Middleton is someone who has the ability to simplify things when it comes to marketing. I therefore had high expectations of this book.

As always Robert did not disappoint. I was unsure whether reading the book and trying the process would actually work.

After reading I took the next step and applied to an area of my business where I was feeling stuck.

Having done this I have identified 9 specific actions that will move things forward.

If you are looking for a process to get you to stop, reflect, challenge your thinking and move into action, this book is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars If You Are Ready For Action This Book Is For You, 13 Oct. 2014

I read this book without any expectation of what it would be like. Having done so I have to say I was really impressed. Sarah does a great job of getting you to look at yourself, your beliefs and face up to some tough realities.

Throughout the book she sets out many questions, encouraging you to stop and take stock. Don't think however this book is just about self reflection. It is clear that the desire is to encourage people to get into action.

The case studies towards the end of the book provided some great insights from a range of different professions.

If you are not getting what you want from your work and are ready to do something about it, this book is for you.

This book contains some excellent tips and strategies. Some of them were new to me and others felt a bit dated. That is the only reason I did not give the book a five star rating.

Ian does a great job of explaining email marketing in a very engaging way. I particularly liked the way he illustrated the client persona.
Strongly recommend for anyone new to the topic or if not getting the results you want at present.

I saw Jim speak at a conference a few years ago. This book provides even more insight than would have been possible during a 60 minute keynote.

What he shares is a no nonsense and grounded assessment without pretending that it is easy. It is hugely refreshing and so different from a lot of other books.

The 10 rules are presented in a highly engaging and entertaining way. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is or aspires to be successful.

Sometimes when you come across a book that is based around research you worry that it might be really dry. This book does a great job of presenting the research in an engaging way.
