    Bölümümle ilgili okuduğum en eğlenceli kaleme sahip kitaptı. Küçük resimlemeler ve parantez arası espiriler beni sık sık güldürdü. Verilen bilgiler ise şaşırttı.Bir ço ünlü firmanın var oluşu ve kullandığ yöntemler çok ilginçmiş..

    Short, punchy, compelling. Makes a strong argument that the 'narrative' of the product should be told by both the product and its marketing - reminding us who are product managers to partner with marketing on product discovery so that we can do our work in paralell rather than sequentially. Recommended. Short, punchy, compelling.

    How innovative products sell themselves Apple CEO Steve Jobs approaches innovation with attitude, saying, “I want to put a ding in the universe.” Many would say Apple’s products have done exactly that, from the Mac to the iPad. Customers don’t just love Apple’s innovative gear – they become devoted members of its tribe. Apple’s products market themselves. Indeed, as Alex Bogusky and John Winsor put it, Apple “bakes” the marketing right into its products. In this charming, short book, they explain How innovative products sell themselves Apple CEO Steve Jobs approaches innovation with attitude, saying, “I want to put a ding in the universe.” Many would say Apple’s products have done exactly that, from the Mac to the iPad.

Indeed, as Alex Bogusky and John Winsor put it, Apple “bakes” the marketing right into its products. In this charming, short book, they explain why innovation is the best marketing tool, why collaboration is the best approach to product design and why the Internet puts the customer firmly in charge (you’ll be all a-Twitter). getAbstract believes anyone involved in product development, branding and marketing could benefit from these concepts. The book is fun to read, from its whimsical illustrations to its succinct ideas: “Don’t just design what you see…design what you don’t see.” To learn more about this book, check out the following Web page: http://www.getabstract.com/summary/13...

    No one reading "Baked In" should assume that Bogusky and Winsor are going to divulge all their marketing secrets, but there are definite golden nuggets in this well-conceived book. Simply put, Baked In encourages companies to remember one simple rule: your product, not your marketing, is your most effective tool. Their advice is clever and succinct, and at a slim 152 pages you won't suffer information overload at its completion. I am not a business person - hell, I didn't even think I was intere No one reading "Baked In" should assume that Bogusky and Winsor are going to divulge all their marketing secrets, but there are definite golden nuggets in this well-conceived book.

I am not a business person - hell, I didn't even think I was interested in advertising - but I read Baked In with a fascination that extends well beyond the reach of the industry itself.

    Alex Bogusky is one of the most revolutionary thinkers in modern advertising, so it’s a shame that this book is so dull. There is nothing inspiring or original about this book, which is the antithesis of the work Bogusky’s agency is known for. Read this passage and I defy you to tell me this pablum is worth my time: "Many companies have forgotten the truth of what their product is all about. Dig into your organization’s culture. Find out what your customers think. Diagnose everyone’s various sacr Alex Bogusky is one of the most revolutionary thinkers in modern advertising, so it’s a shame that this book is so dull.

Read this passage and I defy you to tell me this pablum is worth my time: "Many companies have forgotten the truth of what their product is all about. Dig into your organization’s culture. Find out what your customers think. Diagnose everyone’s various sacred cows. Then, flip it all over and look at it again; you might find the truth (or a new truth) in what you thought was impossible." Ugh. Someone just barfed business talk all over the page.

    The concept of "baked in" is a brilliant one! I don't design products but I have developed many programs. The idea of bringing marketing and design into the innovative process from the beginning is so important! Too often people design great things and then set around waiting for people to "discover" them. That often does not work! I found some great ideas in this little book.

    There are a couple good points and ideas in this book. Pretty vague concepts most of the time. Products that have their marketing "baked in" stand a better chance at succeeding so make your business original to begin with. There are a couple good points and ideas in this book.

    Your product is your marketing, your marketing your product. Anyone who works in marketing or product development should take a minute to listen to what Bogusky has to say.

    Poorly written and not very well thought through (those two often go together). Didn't waste my time finishing this one. Poorly written and not very well thought through (those two often go together). Didn't waste my time finishing this one.
