A MUST for Anyone New to the Field
I stumbled upon this as I was doing research for a presentation and so figured I'd use one of my credits to check it out. See if it was something that I can recommend to anyone who is new to this fiendish, often misunderstood industry.. It's perfect.
First of all, Peter Stormare does a phenomenal job narrating and Ed Zitron knocks it out of the park with straightforward tips that many who are new to Public Relations and marketing just never come across. Unless they're fortunate enough to land a great mentor to help keep them from screwing up too badly before they've even had a chance to really get deep into the industry.
I enjoyed Stormare's rendition of Ed Zitron's very well-written guidebook. It was almost like listening to a great novel. A novel about a guy who was telling his story about wading through those murky PR waters.
I think this should be required reading for all college students enrolled in marketing and communications programs. Much better than a lot of the crap I've come across. If you're looking for a solid support, this is it.

Get started with PR basics
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend this to anyone that has a blog or online eCommerce as well as people who need or want PR. I have a blog and was hoping to find more PR tips and tricks to help myself without needing to hire anyone else and I have a lot of ideas now.
What was one of the most memorable moments of This Is How You Pitch?
There were a handful of memorable moments, one being people think being a PR means going to parties and hob nobbling with celebrities like Samantha Jones from sex in the city. I found that little part funny because I love that show.
What does Peter Stormare bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I love his accent and he was fun to listen to. Learning the information by listening to someone else especially with an accent that you can understand makes it easier for me. He did a great job with reading the book and was very easy to understand.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I wouldn't recommend listening to this one in all one sitting, more then 5 hours is kinda a lot to take in with just one sitting. I'm not saying you cant but I would do it with 2-3.
