Generally, I do not think much of books touting an "x" number of solutions, and less so those claiming access to secrets or arcane knowledge. But my quick flip to the introduction on page 4 grabbed my curiosity and I read it all. No regrets. Overall, an easy read, infused with several empirical datasets...(No surprise here, Ramsey has access to all eMarketer's stats anyways).
Quite impressed with the broad scope and the well thought-out perspective on effective digital advertising. I know from experience that articulating a "universal theory" of digital measurement is not an easy feat, even for experienced analytics professionals. But this book made a commendable attempt. With this strong opening on analytics and content established in the first couple of chapters, the book proceeded to weave the concepts into its discussion of the common channels any digital marketer strives to harness today--display, email, search, mobile, and video.
Audience new to or interested in digital analytics or digital marketing should find this book educating (and entertaining in certain respects), providing a good foundation for understanding other content they may encounter on the several good blogs and articles out there. The advanced digital analytics or strategy professional will find the book refreshing and will certainly pick up additional perspective that will serve him/her well as we all navigate this highly dynamic digital space.
