This is book has really started something new in marketing and customer insight. I have seen a lot of marketing and management people during the last year who have really awaked when then I have heard about communities, social networks, and this book.

It can't a year already! Judging by the feeling of how time flies, it feels a lot shorter. Judging by the impact you have had with the book, a lot longer. Look forward to the next ones...
