A new generation of megabrands like Facebook, Dropbox, Airbnb, and Twitter haven't spent a dime on traditional marketing. No press releases, no TV commercials, no billboards. Instead, they rely on a new strategy - growth hacking - to reach many more people despite modest marketing budgets. Growth hackers have thrown out the old playbook and replaced it with tools that are testable, trackable, and scalable. They believe that products and businesses should be modified repeatedly until they're primed to generate explosive reactions.
Best-selling author Ryan Holiday, the acclaimed marketing guru for American Apparel and many bestselling authors and multiplatinum musicians, explains the new rules and provides valuable examples and case studies for aspiring growth hackers. Whether you work for a tiny start-up or a Fortune 500 giant, if you're responsible for building awareness and buzz for a product or service, this is your road map.

"This book is a wake up call for every marketing exec in the business. And a tutorial for engineers, IT, founders and designers. Read it." (Porter Gale, Former VP of Marketing at Virgin America and author of Your Network is Your Net Worth)

An Interesting, Quick Listen!
Concise, Interesting, Slick
A more general point that stood out for me throughout the entire book was just how wrong some marketers (including Ryan) had been approaching their daily trade!
Very easy to listen to and has a very engaging voice - it's a few hours well spent!
For a business book, I laughed quite a bit!
A nice, quick summary of growth hacking. It gave me a taste and I immediately wanted more!
