Someone makes a mistake online. The internet goes crazy. Is this the modern equivalent of the lynch mob? Found the examples fascinating, and yes, felt sorry for the people who made the mistake. I could have easily done the same. But not so much for the intentional liars, the fraudsters and those who are less innocent. Felt the book could have explored the line - the grey - because this internet shaming ain’t stopping any time soon. As much as we may like a judge and jury system that isn’t happening.

Needs a new postscript!

Gripping narrative about a terrible criminal and an amateur sleuth. But didn’t they catch the guy in the end? Please add a chapter on Joseph James DeAngelo Jr.

Using case studies from his own, and others’ experience, Adam clearly illustrates what he believes to be key aspects of good advertising. Easy to listen to and understand, I enjoyed the audiobook. Probably would have absorbed it better as a book, not audio, though.

... the further into this I progressed, the better I found it. Upon completion I wanted to listen again. The basic premise is well explained in the early chapters, but it was the deeper examples and research findings later in the book that I found most interesting. Written in a style that’s true to Adam’s brand the book was easy to digest and entertaining throughout.

The story evolved, the characters filled out, the whole audiobook was very enjoyable. Not at all disturbing, even though the central theme of the missing child is a very tough topic, especially for parents!

I think I need to re-read ... just didn’t understand the detail in Rising Strong. The premise was fine, the anecdotes and stories interesting but the rumble and other parts of the process did not make sense to me.

Superbly narrated, this story was dark, chilling but captivating. It made me, as a male, hate my own sex!

Sandra’s life story is amazing. The situations she has endured would destroy most people. And the author has captured Sandra’s story in intricate detail. But it’s not an easy story. It’s not uplifting and it’s probably a bit too long as a narrative.
