    Pros: 

    I like the honest style, no holds barred and real life experience of the author.

    Cons: 

    In the audiobook (which I listened to), the author's voice is quite annoying and repetitive, the sound quality is poor.

    I have to confess I like Ryan Holiday and this book is really excellent though listening to him read it made me what to tear my own eyes out. He's clearly a master of his craft and highly intelligent. But I don't think I could listen to him self narrate another audio book.

    Neil M White has used this product for one year.

Ryan also worked closely with Tim Ferris, and tons of others great minds. He also know as director of marketing at American Apparel. This is Ryan Holiday himself: "Why am I giving away these secrets? Because I'm tired of a world where blogs take indirect bribes, marketers help write the news, reckless journalists spread lies, and no one is accountable for any of it. I'm pulling back the curtain because I don't want anyone else to get blindsided." I think Ryan wrote the piece so you are aware of the tactics versus producing a playbook to use it. He also mentioned a part where the media were hunting him down in his own game. Recommended entertaining read with some great insights into the media industry, sometime provocative..
