I think what readers will find expecially useful is the straightforward and example rich approach Tamar takes in explaining how companies and individuals can succeed towards marketing goals through thoughtful participation. Getting advice from someone who has ’been there, done that’ can save a substantial amount of resources, money and shorten the time to get up to speed.
