REVIEWS

Marketing as we know it is dead. The role of CMO is no longer to build a brand. It is to create a movement. The CMO is morphing into the Chief Metrics Officer… not good enough. It should be Chief Magic Officer. Javier shows us how to make this journey.

Kevin Roberts, Chairman, Saatchi & Saatchi

A great roadmap to build and monetize brands, a multi-year process centred on human emotions. Reading through felt like my years work-ing with Javier, fun, challenging, in-your-face, authentic and very human; which is what most struck me about this book: you get a Javier’sclear perspective on how to build brands, and – for those of you that haven’t had the pleasure of getting to know him – the full unvarnished blast of his larger than life personality! I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to develop an in-depth understanding of marketing but especially to GM’s that have market-ing responsibility: it will give you the context and insights to determine whether your marketing teams are building long term value.

Brian Smith, President, The Coca-Cola Company, EMEA Group

The Prisoner and the Penguin

The power of a good story has long been recognised. It seems that, as a race, we humans love a good story. But stories aren’t just for pure enjoyment - they have long been a powerful tool for teaching. This book is an alternative to traditional marketing handbook. Rather than a textbook, it is an enjoyable “story-book” that brings to life some of the key principles of marketing in an easy-to-read, accessible form. Some of these stories are quite remarkable and almost unbelievable; but all are true and remind marketers and businesspeople that the best marketing is something which people tell others about and retell over many years.

Weather Or Not?

The impact of the weather is often taken for granted and sometimes completely ignored. Weather in all forms is a maker and breaker of both business and personal fortunes, especially when it reaches extremes. The weather we experience crucially dictates almost every aspect of our lives. It directs what we do and when we do it, from what we eat and drink, to the clothes we wear, and it even governs our health and behaviour. In this entertaining and informative book, global expert meteorologist and weather authority, Jim N R Dale, shares his experiences and advises how you and your business could truly become weather savvy. Weather impact is an all-consuming phenomenon, and, with the rise of climate change, there is no better time to tune into one of the most important aspects of our lives. Certainly, a book for a rainy day!
