This is such a great book I'm giving up a Secret

Where does The New Rules of Marketing and PR rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

#1 in the Marketing and PR, and Social Media Marketing arena

What did you like best about this story?

It's not A story. Rather it is many stories, hints, tips, and real life examples of how people are improving their marketing and PR using current tools available today

Any additional comments?

I bought a previous release of David's book years ago that is now tattered, highlighted and well-worn, I was so impressed I bought the audio. When this new edition came out I immediately got it. I am sure that like my previous edition, I will listen to it at least once a month as a refresher.

There are so many things packed in here that I always come away with a few new ideas.

One of the best attributes of The New Rules is this: Instead of so many others writing, "You have to be on Facebook, because it's Facebook"...."You need to be on Twitter, because it's Twitter".....This book talks about real marketing and PR tried and true concepts. Then, the author says, "here are some tools that should help you do this" Then he may mention Twitter, Facebook, a Blog, etc. This is one of the most beneficial things about this book.

Really I shouldn't write this review. I am telling everyone about a secret weapon

Great book, though audio a bit overdone

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would definitely recommend it, though might caution them that the audio can get a bit extreme. The speaker tends to overdue it a bit; the exaggeration at times is unnecessary.

What other book might you compare The New Rules of Marketing and PR to and why?

I've read several other books on marketing, but am unsure of any that I'd compare it to.

What three words best describe David Meerman Scott and Sean Pratt ’s voice?

Clear, exaggerated, overdone.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Winning the marketing game with better content

Any additional comments?

I had read an earlier version and am pleased to have the opportunity to get an update. The market moves quickly, and so to keep up with it is important.
