Bookpile: July 2009

What I read (that I can remember):

Meatball Sundae: Is Your Marketing out of Sync?
(I know. I hadn’t actually read everything Seth wrote.) One of Seth’s least popular books and I can understand a little as this is a tough concept for most people to get. But it’s a good book, definitely worth a look through. But also the most frustrating from a marketer’s standpoint because it makes the case that marketers need to be involved from the start of business and product development. And that’s a tough one to pull off at most companies.

Little Brother
Cory Doctorow’s book has been topping all the charts as a great piece of libertarian fiction. And it is both great and libertarian. If you think you have nothing to worry about from the “war on terror”, think again. And given recent news out of Florida with a representative saying our freedom isn’t absolute, the fictional story in this book seems even more real and possible. It’s listed as young adult fiction, but great for any age with a thinking brain. Loved!
