The Making of Swallows & Amazons: Behind the Scene&hellip by Sophie Neville

But this has done what we wanted it to more effectively than earlier trees.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)

This hasn't just been because we wanted to grab people's attention ourselves, but also because the internet is just the latest platform for viral marketing, a phenomenon that has helped to make brands cool for decades (I'm sure we can all think of adverts and so on from when we were growing up that captured our attention and put their brands in the front of our heads).

This short but carefully researched book offers analysis of what it is that… Read more
