Good, but out of date

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Maybe, only if they had no understanding of branding at all.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Made some effort focusing toward small businesses. Almost ever single case study in the book is geared toward large corporations, but I highly doubt the core readership is made up of corporate CEOs and/or Brand Managers.

What about David Drummond’s performance did you like?

It was good, but I am tired of corporate book voice overs always sounding robotic.

Any additional comments?

This book is vastly out of date. Even the portion that relates to the internet is out of date, and I think many of the "laws" they present need to be looked at again, because they have been proven wrong by the success of smaller, more modern brands.

Also, some of the laws talked about outright conflict with each other. It's hard to know which way to turn with the ideas in this book because they seem to be incongruous.

Indeed Immutable despite dated examples

What did you love best about The 22 Immutable Laws of Branding?

The insights are indeed invaluable.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Examples are dated. An updated version would have been great.

What does David Drummond bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings the book to life. I love his narration (what would you call it for non-fiction books?)...I started searching for books he read.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, at times some anecdotes or examples did make me laugh!
