Unleashing the Ideavirus by Seth Godin
Unleashing The Ideavirus is a really an interpretation of the way human interaction, the Internet and marketing have fused into a new beast. A virus that can spread like wildfire and can quickly turn your simple small business or product into all the rage or a “has been” over night. The ideas in this book are going to be hard to swallow for many old timers and experienced self-employed people, especially if you have been successful over the years. It is easy to fool yourself into believing that you have it all figured out because you made it this far. I am sure that is what IBM, Montgomery Wards and Borders Books thought.
