"You’ve seen it all before. A malicious online rumor costs a company millions. A political sideshow derails the national news cycle and destroys a candidate. Some product or celebrity zooms from total obscurity to viral sensation. What you don’t know is that someone is responsible for all this. Usually, someone like me. I’m a media manipulator. In a world where blogs control and distort the news, my job is to control blogs—as much as any one person can."

The content of the book is absolutely brilliant, and opened my eyes to how PR really works.

The annoying thing about the audio book however is the reader. The most dull and annoying voice, who phrases every other sentence like it's a question. Infuriating.

I'm new to content marketing and found this very helpful.im going to have to listen a couple more times to take it all in as there is a lot of info.

My only criticism is the recording itself. I found that on certain syllables he pronounces will blast your ears off. I think the levels are a bit out.

Excellent advice in general, but fairly basic. If you have experience in this field, you may want to look for something slightly more advanced.
