Typical marketing "guru" stuff. Doesn't add much

Typical... a bunch of acronyms, nothing really new or innovative. One or two interesting points

The one digital marketing book to read this year..

What made the experience of listening to Get Scrappy the most enjoyable?

Great that this was narrated by the author. Gave it a personal feel. The content connected all the various facets of a multi-channel digital marketing plan in an easy-to-understand fashion. I left the book feeling like I had a better grasp of the questions I needed to ask to make sure I was doing the absolute best I can with the limited time and resources I have.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Get Scrappy?

At one point, Nick quotes a Rudyard Kipling poem that reminds marketers the most important questions to ask of their marketing strategy. That was pretty great. Also, the focus on regarding strategy as a map, rather than a prescription was enlightening.


What does Nick Westergaard and Ann Handley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I can tell that Nick writes from a place of experience actually doing the things he's talking about, whereas so many marketers and thought leaders write in hypotheticals and from a place of watching, not doing.


Any additional comments?

Really great amalgamation of ideas from some of my favorite marketing books. This book takes principles from some of the best minds in marketing and business and weaves them together to create the foundation for a full-scale digital marketing strategy that challenges you to do more with less. Really great read.
