This book by Steve Cone has received extensive praise from the marketing and business community. But, no one has summed it up better than Richard F. Zannino, then COO of Dow Jones & Co. (now CEO). He said in the Wall Street Journal, "In less than 200 pages, Mr Cone provides a crash course on the art and science of marketing. He imagines his audience as aspiring marketing stars and executives, but even those of us who are not can benefit from his 'secrets.' His book is an busy executive's dream: well-organized, easy to read, packed with lucid opinions and lively examples. It includes bullet-point summaries and pithy checklists. He doesn't merely offer advice but unabashedly tells us what to to do. He gets away with this less because of his advertising pedigree than because of the logic of the case he makes."
Al Riis, author of 'The Origin of Brands', says it is "loaded with great marketing ideas" and calls it "a steal at $18.95."
Steve Forbes, CEO of Forbes, Inc., says, "Marketing mavens who treasure their jobs--or better yet, want to move ahead--will find themselves using Cone's incredible cache of ever-insightful tips and ideas as their guide to innovation and success."From the Inside Flap:
