Rich from Hello_World wrote a post a couple of days ago about our Art of the Start Pitch Kit. He believes it is not very original. Others have left comments on the post voicing similar thoughts.

Sadly, 800CEOREAD's entire e-commerce system went down around 4AM yesterday and didn't come back until last night. I am more than sorry and our propeller heads have assured me that redundancy will be the word of the day going forward. We are back!


A reminder

I just wanted to remind everyone that we have a variety of RSS feeds you can subscribe to. There is obviously the feed feed that gets you all the good stuff. We also have category-based feeds if you are only interested in a particular type of business book.

BOOK REVIEW: 18 Immutable Laws of Corporate Reputation

By 800-CEO-READ, published May 17, 2004, at 2:02 PM in News & Opinion

Book: 18 Immutable Laws of Corporate Reputation Author: Ronald Alsop Reviewer: johnmoore (from the Brand Autopsy blog) In 18 Immutable Laws of Corporate Reputation, Ronald Alsop gives sound advice on how to manage, measure, and nurture the reputation of a corporation. As a marketer, the concept of displacing the discipline of brand management for reputation management is profound. Lets face it, branding is a nebulous term that not everyone in your company fully understands, including folks in the marketing department.


The Recruit

Whether or not, someone likes or dislikes a book depends on a million things - did they like the cover art, what did others say about the book, what other books have they read, and so on. We think the only answer to that is to give you a variety of viewpoints about business books. We are going have a number of people start writing reviews for blog.


Rock the Vote!

By 800-CEO-READ, published May 6, 2004, at 2:00 PM in News & Opinion

We got some comments about how we were going to decide the blog's name. My poor attempt at humor got people concerned. Let me make it clear - we would like our readers to decide what the new name will be.


Thanks for your help!
