4.0 out of 5 stars A great little book, 28 May 2007
I have already lent this book to a friend who would benefit from it more than me. I had been offering advice about quitting a venture (which was possibly going to drain all their time and energy) and this book gave me the back-up I needed... in black and white.

It's all commonsense, but like all things like this, sometimes you just need a stranger to shed a little light on thigs, and say it how it is.

another enjoyable, short book from Mr Godin.

I would recommend you read this on a train, if you're on the way to a project meeting that you're hearts just not in!

4.0 out of 5 stars a exciting read and some very positive thinking, 28 May 2007
I'll start by saying out of all of Seth's books my favourite still remains 'Free Prize inside'. It was also the first book of his I read, so maybe that made a difference.

however, I find his style of writing to be very entertaining, not preachy and full of enthusiasm from someone who obviously enjoys what he does.

Some of the anecdotes have cropped up before, but unlike other authors who write similar books, he is forgiven as the vast majority makes you think.

Some books pertain to have all the answers, this one gives you a helping hand along the way... I read books of this nature to get inspiration and ideas or how others have approached situations previously.

Seth's books are easy to read and very enjoyable.

2.0 out of 5 stars Started off okay... but then lost it's way, 28 May 2007
I often enjoy reading exciting stories about how a business came from nowhere to become a big success, and from the reviews I thought this might be an interesting case study.

Unfortunately it was kind of a one trick pony (based on a one-off publicity stunt, and not one that was really associated with the product they were selling)... and therefore the ideas the book promotes are not groundbreaking, and really quite poor.

It also tells a few anecdotes about how some other companies adopted a similar buzzmarketing approach to raising the profile of a product or brand, but none very relevant to small businesses who this book is targeting.

It's really about publicity stunts, which is nothing new.

Saying that, the first few paragraphs were good.

Thanks. Hope this helps. But I would recommend reading something like Purple Cow by Seth Godin.
