I’ve read it and would recommend to anyone interested in Digital Marketing
waiting for the postman!
Thanks for the post about the book, and the comments — just picked them up now via Google :-).
Always great to get feedback from readers — helps us to gauge where we got things right, and what we need to work harder on. There’s a follow up book featuring “best of” digital marketing case studies planned for next year — keep an eye on understandingdigital.com (currently being revamped) and follow UDigital on Twitter for more details.
where is I can buy the book?
You can buy it direct from the publisher Kogan Page (http://url.ie/24bf), or from Amazon (http://url.ie/mbh) or from other online and bricks-and-mortar bookstores like Waterstones, Barnes & Noble and others.
The first print run has sold out, and Kogan Page are awaiting another batch of books, which should be with them soon.
Sorry… the URL for Kogan Page doesn’t seem to work in the comment above… trying again :-).
