Critic reviews

"When I read The New Rules for the first time, it was a 'eureka' moment for me at HubSpot. David nailed the fundamental shifts going on in the buyer-seller relationship and wrote the classic text to help marketers take advantage of them." (Brian Halligan, CEO, HubSpot, and coauthor of Inbound Marketing)

To simple

If you are looking for anything but the basics I would look elsewhere. Talks about what you should do but not how you should go about doing it effectively. quite typical of these type of cash in business books. they talk about a strategy but not tactics.

A Life Changing Audiobook?

What did you like best about this story?

This audiobook was a real ear-opener for me, I found the concepts in it extremely exciting and although only a fledgling new business I have begun to implement as many as I can and seek assistance from others that are more knowledgeable. Inbound Marketing is the future (IMO) and any business large or small will benefit by doing it properly. I found this book had sufficient detail, without being too heavy and diverse enough to keep it entertaining.

Time will tell whether these ideas will make a difference in the future to my business but it is now a significant part of my Business Development strategy and given me so many ideas to get on with.

I could not rate or recommend this (audio)book more highly.

What does David Meerman Scott and Sean Pratt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Sean Pratt is a fantastic narrator, dare I say my only disappointment with the follow up book about Sales and Service is that DMS isn't nearly as engaging as a reader as Sean Pratt. I will be looking for other titles that he has done to see if any are of interest to me.

Any additional comments?

I spend an hour and a half a day driving to and from work so always try to fill up my time by learning new things. Some audiobooks just don't stick, whether it's the narrator, the subject matter or whatever, if I find I have to concentrate too hard to remember stuff it gets binned (for obvious reasons!) This audiobook is great, the narrator superb and I actually found myself looking forward to getting in the car!

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.
