Read most of this book. As a marketing manager, it gave me some pointers that are helpful in a marketing career. Marketing is about creativity, but the technical aspects of the subject matter are very important to know as well. If you don't have a degree in marketing (or some sort of business or communications degree), this book isn't going to teach you what you need to know for a career in marketing.

Recommends it for: People interested in learning marketing
It teaches the basics of marketing - good for starters. It was pretty good, although I'm still not a good marketer. It helped me realize (indirectly) that instead of trying to master every skill under the sun, I should focus on what I'm good at, i.e. software development, not distribution and selling.

This is marketing 101: a basic reference guide. I found a lot of this book's content common sense for someone who has worked in a business for any amount of time. It is need-to-know knowledge, but it is not in the least bit inspiring.

I'm getting more into the marketing stuff at work, and wanted a quick and easy intro to the terms and the layout of the field. It did its job to give me the intro, but you better not stop here if you plan to learn ANYTHING.

This is another book that the owner had me read. He was a firm believer in Dummy books!
