A decent book

Right, just to make this clear, I wasn't listening exclusively to this, I was listening to it while playing poker, so my opinion can't be trusted completely, but I was sufficiently taken with the 'book' to write a review.

It's quite short, well read and doesn't spend time labouring over insignificant details. There's nothing ground breaking in this book and the majority of it's content is based on branding and the principle of being the first to market, the first into the customers mind and therefore becoming 'The Brand' by default.

There's a lot small businesses can take from this and, although almost a cliche in marketing circles, they make some very valid points as to why 'micro niching' is better than being all things to all people.

They use many examples (in American big business) where they show a company starts with a very specific market and business, then expands only to lose what made them big in the first place and ultimately fall apart.

To summarise, short, concise, well read, sufficiently engrossing and I expect to listen to this repeatedly. I didn't give it 5 because I don't feel many who are involved in marketing will find anything particularly new.

Very outdated

Perhaps useful when it was released but I don't see why Audible are still selling this.
