5.0 out of 5 stars Better than you expect - I bet ya, 3 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Amazing. It arrived on time, It took longer to take of the sellotape than to set up. Piece of piss. Not sure why some have said weird things about the voice that activates the blue tooth. Seems fine to me. Some people aye.

It's louder than expected too. I'm gonna buy another one so there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rips into the world of social media marketing,, 6 Sept. 2012
This is the most brilliant book on the world of advertising like ever.

And it is the funniest too, probably.

Story after story ripping into the world of social media marketing, whilst making it very clear that his own house (Advertising) isn't exactly in order, especially attention being paid to planners, head of the congloms and CMOs.

He comes at the subject as a creative and also a believer in evidence, being once a science teacher. Slashing at myths and bumbo jumbo in the world of advertising and marketing, like a swash buckling, Bernbach loving, pizza eating (no pineapple) atheist. He takes few prisoners.

His correspondence with a social media marketing zealot called Felix had me bent over like an account manager trying to say a client.

Oh btw Bob swears a lot and if you think swearing is funny, which it is, you'll love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Know Your Onions, 24 Feb. 2012
As a kind of 'how to' book, this is a bit different. It's written like your are actually having a chat with the bloke who wrote it. And he's quite funny in places, which you don't usually get with these type of books.

I'm not a designer, I bought it to understand the design process. This really gives you an understanding of a whole heap of secrets and 'ways of thinking' instead of believing it's just about picking the right typeface.
