Seth Godin’s new book releases today. I received an early copy and read it in two sittings. Yes, I am a Seth Godin fan having read all his books and every blog post he’s written since about 2004. This Is Marketing is Seth’s best book because it’s written for people who think they already know about marketing. It’s written for today’s era of polarization and spin. It’s written to help us all get back to basics.

Today, the revised and expanded paperback edition of The New Rules of Sales and Service releases in bookstores and online in North America.

I read a copy of Disrupted: My Misadventure in the Start-Up Bubble by Dan Lyons which I purchased on eBay from a bookseller in California. The book will officially release on April 5, 2016. Disrupted chronicles Lyons’ employment as marketing fellow at HubSpot from April 2013 to December 2014.

However as I review people’s business-related social streams I find way too much selling going on. When I speak with people at conferences, many want to know, specifically, how to use social networking feeds such as Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Facebook to communicate effectively as a marketing and sales tool.
When you’re new to an industry, you don’t have to play by the rules. You can make up your own or apply ideas from your past experiences. That’s exactly what Michelle Miller did to publish The Underwriting, her first novel releasing later this month.
