Jeff Bezos had this book listed on his reading list, which I discovered in his book The Everything Store. I’m a bit surprised he rated-it as high as he did. In some ways the book was insightful when it comes to simplifying the key matrices needed to gauge a successful marketing campaign using big data.

The book did a fine job outlining the challenges many organizations have when it comes to interpreting big-data, but it fell short outlining the steps needed to create a successful data discovery

As some of the other readers who reviewed this book on Goodreads, I read this book because it was on Jeff Bezo's reading list at the end of "The Everything Store". It gives you a great understanding of why Amazon is so data-driven and ultimately why they are so wildly successful.

Old-fashioned intuitive marketing has no room in the contemporary world. It is obviously necessary to come up with creative ways to craft a message, but the channels, strategies and ultimate growth need to be data-drive

I read this because it was on Jeff Bezos list. but God this book was boring, a little useless if your are already well versed in marketing, and information that has been standard for over a decade now.

My background is not in marketing, it's in information technology, so I readily connected with Jeffery's message, which is that organizations can perform better by measuring their marketing efforts. Although this should be intuitively obvious, Jeffery demonstrates convincingly why organizations fail in the area of measuring ROMI. Having nearly twenty years of experience in IT, I can attest that this phenomenon isn't isolated to marketing organizations.

I rated the book four stars only because Jef

Very interesting details about how technology driven marketing has become today. the 15 metrics that Mark have shared are pretty interesting & form the basis of data driven marketing. Any marketing organization would need to have the set up to track & measure these metrics. What was most interesting in this book was the real time examples to measure & track marketing in B to B world which has always been a big challenge when it comes to marketing operations. I really got some actiona ...more

3.5 stars. Boring at times but obviously not meant to be super entertaining. If you do any kind of marketing work, or some kind of data work related to marketing, it's probably worth the time investment.

3.5 stars. solid breakdown of the basics of analytical marketing. would've been great to see a bit more detail on how to execute some of the models described, and a bit more detail on experimental design, but overall an informative read, and a decent way to keep the MBA skills sharp. obviously you should ignore this book unless you are in the marketing field (and probably only in marketing for larger companies).

This is a dry book, that is not read for enjoyment. It gives the non-data business person an insight into the data-driven aspect of business. I am happy to have read it, though I would not recommend picking it up for leisure.

The book is pretty easy to read, but the sheer volume of the acronyms around every page turn had me wishing I made a cheat sheet. I like the idea of finding a way to put hard numbers to what is normally considered a soft skill.

This book gives a great overview to new and experienced marketers alike on the how/why of measuring marketing effectiveness. It is jam-packed with applicable stories, and also gives access to user tools/templates. A must read for anyone in business!
