Anatomy of a Buzz puts together the bits and pieces of what other marketing materials has said or missed out and put it together in an easy-to-read book. In the field of marketing, the content is similar throughout and one can find the mantra "engagement" to be the key word repeated across different books. But what makes them different is in the case studies selected, simply because we learn by example. And Emanuel Rosen chooses his case studies well.

I found Anatomy of a Buzz an easy-read and th
I read this book for three reasons: One, because I knew I needed to write a thorough review for Goodreads, after having received this book from the publisher through the Goodreads promotion. Two, because I thought it would be helpful in my current job at a non-profit where we rely on a lot of word-of-mouth publicity. Three, because it sounded really fascinating, and I personally wanted to know more about it. It was difficult to hold all this in my head, which is why it took me so long to finish ...more
won this in a goodreads giveaway... liking it so far! been having discussions with friends lately about recommending mechanics and other services, so this is an appropriate subject.

update: so after two moves and starting graduate school, i finally finished this book! really enjoyed it, found it to be comparable to freakonomics in the way it looks at life, though the subject matter is a bit different. didn't read the first version (anatomy of buzz) so i can't say how different this one is... i d

Why haven't I read this book before? Great real-world examples of how people, companies, and causes create word-of-mouth buzz about what they do and why we should listen. Listening is an art and communicators don't do enough of it (present company included). A great must-read for communicators.
Mark Kinsley
An interesting book, but I'm stopping midway through. It's a bit more data than I can make use of at this early stage of my company. I might re-visit this again in the future.
Todd Sattersten
This shouldn't be called a revision because most of the book has been rewritten of the classic manual on word of mouth marketing.
Nathaniel Flannol Rosa
Quite heavy. Really only skim read this a few years ago, but good take-aways.
This book states the obvious ... some examples are indpirative though
Saw this on the Goodreads Giveaways and thought it looked neat.
