Nothing you don't already know

Who do you think would benefit most from listening to Word of Mouth Marketing: How Smart Companies Get People Talking?

Worth the listen if you are in marketing - it's always good to let tips and tactics seep deeper into your subconscious, but the book is neither riveting nor profound by any means.

Absolutely trivial

Full of trivialities, nothing substantial, eye opening or relevant. Outdated taking into account the current scenario in Social Media.
