    Pros: Excellent Ideas on how to grow a business.

    Pros: Good documentation of a new model
    Cons: Somewhat academic

    Summary: Like many of the business to consumer company models that gush about the virtues of one to one marketing, Godin's book is a nice theoretical and idealistic book. Even though I have given many companies "permission" to market to me, I have yet ... read more

    Pros: Valuable information for newbie marketer
    Cons: Nothing new to experienced marketer
