Reviews

"When bad news hits, you won't have time to read this book -- so you better read it "now"!. For marketers coping with a consumer who's skeptical and networked, Pete gives us a first aid kit, a bullet, and a shot of whiskey."
- Ted McConnell, Director of Interactive/Digital Innovation, Procter & Gamble
"The only way this book could provide a more substantial take on consumer generated media is if Blackshaw allowed his readers to write it themselves."
-Dave Balter, CEO, BzzAgent

"Much more than a cautionary tale -- this book helps marketers understand how to build and nurture brands in a world where consumer generated media is growing by leaps and bounds."
-Ted Woehrle, SVP Marketing & Brand Management, Newell Rubbermaid
"Pete Blackshaw really gets it. For marketers and other corporate control freaks, it's about diving in and letting go. As a blogger myself at Sony, I've dogeared several pages from the book that I will be referring back to from time to time. "
-Rick Clancy, SVP, Corporate Communications, Sony Electronics

BBB has served as the marketplace voice for these principles for nearly 100 years, and Pete puts them all into a contemporary mission critical context."

"In June 2006, a man named Vincent Ferrari had a shockingly combative conversation with an AOL sales rep; he recorded it and posted it on YouTube. More than 62,827 viewings later, AOL's reputation was irretrievably damaged. In the digital age, disgruntled customers are now in the driver's seat, argues Blackshaw in this thoughtful and engaging book. With the advent of Consumerist.com and other venues where customers can blow off steam about bad service or deficient products, consumer generated media is a force to be reckoned with. Since consumers trust other consumers above companies or brands, a company's success depends on its credibility and its ability to gain the trust and support of Web-savvy, outspoken and influential customers. Through remarkable stories of mass consumer advocacy and the power of bloggers and ordinary Joes with an Internet connection and a bone to pick, Blackshaw advises executives on how to build credibility into their businesses through blogs, Web sitesand video postings. Informative, energetic and entertaining, this is a marvelous argument for corporate responsibility and accountability, interesting to laypeople and instructive for executives." ""
