I immensely enjoyed listening to this book, but most of all I really enjoyed implementing the tips and stratedgies it offered.
I was looking for a backgound on how some companies social media in order to generate business. I was very sceptical about the
majority of claims out there, that social media is effective for generating business. I can honestly now say that I definitely now know that it is effective. Within two weeks of implementing the authors tips and strategies I managed to bag a new customer on my website and have generated positive revenue from this relationship. The most remarkable feature of this, is that my website is still only now partly complete.

I certainly recommend this book for anyone who would like to change the way they currently market their business.

On 13 September 2007, Robert Peston broke the news that Northern Rock had become a victim of the global credit crunch and was seeking an emergency loan from the Bank of England. It was the latest in a long line of scoops by this award-winning journalist. Over the weeks that followed, the Government found itself exposed to the Rock to the tune of £57 billion, or almost £2,000 for every taxpayer.

I can't really say how much I enjoyed this book. I found it really entertaining, so much so I listened to it twice in 1 week. I especially enjoyed the piece about Stuart Rose and Phillip Green. It brings real colour to world of business. I found the way Peston wrote this book really easy to understand and follow, the narration is absolutely fantastic.
It is remarkable to found out how intertwined the world of big business actually is. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to find out more about business in the UK. I enjoyed this audio book so much I bought the soft cover too :-)

I am currently studying enhancing performance in the workplace and got this book in order to do some background study. I am so glad I did, as this book has really provided me with lots of tips and ideas on how to be more productive myself. This book is really well worth a listen while you are driving to work, as it really motivated me to get on with the day and try out some of the time saving and time management techniques. Highly recommend this book

Almost everyone who runs a business recognizes the value of generating high-profile attention for their company, product, or service. Unfortunately, the high cost of hiring an outside marketing or PR firm can put these kinds of efforts out of reach for many small businesses and individual professionals.

It done more than that it has helped me remodel my entire outlook on my business. I only wish I bought this book years ago!!
