There’s a plethora of marketing books available, some great, some OK, and some leave you wondering why. Bianca reviews many of these to learn new tactics and strategies for herself, and shares these with you. No, it’s not a Cliff Notes, you’ll still need to read these to gain their wisdom, but hopefully the reviews will help you sort the great from the WTF. Oh, and a word of warning, her definition of marketing book is a tad broad. You never know what you’ll find.
Bianca’s reviews are also at GoodReads, Amazon and NetGalley, as applicable.
Are you an author with a marketing book to be reviewed? Bianca accepts review copies via NetGalley and directly. Please contact her first to check her turn-around time. Sometimes she’s too busy to accept new books and would hate to waste your time.
