This audiobook could upset a lot of people. It is the first to state the obvious: Marketing is a mess. Jack Trout intends to make the people who made the mess very uncomfortable. Only then will they begin to look for the obvious solutions that will separate their products from their competitors - in a way that is equally obvious to customers. All this comes with no jargon, no numbers, no complexity, and a great deal of common sense. The search for any marketing strategy is the search for the obvious. We are in an era of killer competition. Category after category is perceived as a commodity. This fact is the central reason the critically important function of marketing is such a mess. It´s also why the average chief marketing officer barely lasts beyond two years in the job. In this audiobook, marketing guru Jack Trout clears up the confusion that surrounds the marketing profession. Instead of focusing on segmentation or customer retention or search engine optimization or data mining, marketers should be searching for that simple, obvious differentiating idea. This search should begin with what Trout considers the best book ever written on marketing - even though it was published in 1916 and isn´t about marketing. Entitled Obvious Adams: The Story of a Successful Business Man, it lays out the five tests of an obvious idea that will lead you to the right marketing strategy for any product. Trout goes beyond the obvious by laying out what gets in the way of this search, like the Internet, advertising people, marketing people, Wall Street, research, even the future. These are all huge distractions that keep marketers from their most important task: differentiating their products. To bring these principles for finding the obvious to life, Trout finds obvious solutions to today´s troubles for the likes of GM, Coke, Wal-Mart, newspapers, and the bewildering beer business. The fundamental problem is that professional marketers overlook the most ob 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Pratt.

Charlie Rhodes has a new life and it’s not exactly what she thought it would be. She’s psychic, telekinetic, and eager to learn from her knowledgeable co-workers at The Legacy Foundation. She’s also nervous, frightened and on edge...mostly because she’s exactly the sort of oddity the group is looking to study and she’s desperate to keep her secret from the very people who are searching for her. When word comes down that a chupacabra may have been sighted in Texas - perhaps even killing a man in an old abandoned mining town - Charlie is eager to show her worth. She’s part of the first team that descends on Hooper’s Mill, and there’s definitely an air of danger lingering over the town. Charlie can feel it. She can sense...something. It’s lurking in the town and watching. Unfortunately for Charlie, she can’t get a handle on whether she’s looking for a human or animal. She just knows that it’s dangerous...and it wants to kill anyone who crosses its path. When one member of the team goes missing, Charlie realizes she’s running out of time to solve a mystery in the present that has ties to the past. All the while she’s trying to ensure her own future as the jaws of death - in the form of a mythical creature - snap at her heels. It’s all hands on deck for another adventure, and this time the stakes might be so high not everyone survives. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Emily Lawrence.

Four campers experience the unimaginable.... A signal from deep space is detected.... NASA and SETI scramble for answers.... But what they discover is...terrifying.When four campers decide to take a short vacation in the pine forests of Mount Shasta, a potentially active volcano, and some say, a mystical mountain region in the Cascade Mountain Range of Northern California, it turns out they aren´t alone....After a long drive through the Shasta Trinity National Forest, British MIT graduate Tom Bishop and his three friends set up camp in the closed-for-the-season Pine Crags Wilderness Campsite, in the shadows of Mount Shasta. As they exchange legends about the mysterious mountain, something appears from the woods which defies all logic....Meanwhile SETI scientist and exo-solar planet hunter Dr. Lucy Davies is monitoring the array of computer screens in front of her while carrying out a routine ET signal sweep when she almost drops her mug of coffee, as one of the screens starts flashing - indicating a confirmed detection of a signal from space.... Upon closer annalysis however the signal is even more intriguing. Whilst it appears to emanate from space, it actually terminates at a remote location in the Cascade Mountain Range of the western USA - an area known as Cobalt Ridge. As NASA and SETI scientists scramble to determine if the signal is a genuine fist contact from an alien species, Tom and his friends are frantically searching for two of their team, missing since the campsite incident. As they uncover more clues, their search leads them down a remote series of old mining tunnels towards the base of Mount Shasta. What they eventually discover there however stuns the scientific community. But, are the space signals what they appear to be? Do they represent genuine contact from an alien inteligence...or could they amount to something even more sinist 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Loving.
