Being a rebel by nature I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Simple Manifesto. If you are conventional in business by nature, then do yourself a favour and take a walk on the wild side, and consider the opportunities you may be missing. You might just surprise yourself. Being labelled a ‘con-artist’ in the past would have been offensive, but having seen it in a new light, I would agree it is a term I would take on without hesitation. This book covers a lot of great information, and for those who run their business and have no knowledge of how optimise their online marketing or websites, the second half will explain it with great clarity and a bit of fun. Even so, leave it to the experts, but become involved and get this book for an easy read. You may even find a bit of yourself in it.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Simple Manifesto. Fundamentally, our businesses, success and results in life all stem from who we are, what we believe, think, value and the actions we take. Our minds are the root of all things. I particularly enjoyed the first few chapters where Wes has drilled down on these fundamentals and poses questions which every business owner or aspiring business owner should take time to answer, even if they think they already know them. Reassessing what we do regularly, being open to new ideas and different ways of doing things, is critical to thrive in our fast paced changing world. Wes writes in a down to earth and engaging manner, which ensures his book is easy to read, entertaining and most important, useful.

The Simple Manifesto is strikingly innovative in its approach, stepping outside of the square to challenge its readers. Thought-provoking and insightful, Wes gives power to the reader by leaving any decisions in the reader’s hands. The Simple Manifesto goes against all the rules in the best way possible, challenging everything you thought you knew about marketing. Really, a great read!

In today's world of disruptive technology and thought, it is refreshing to read a book that challenges the 'status-quo' of marketing thinking. Wes' clear writing style, along with his simplistic 'SNAP' view for streamlining marketing for small business, makes absolute sense and is easy to follow. I would highly recommend this book to any small business owner looking to get results rather than sift through a myriad of marketing information.

The Simple Manifesto is written in a clear understandable way for the reader who is not web-savvy but needs to be. I found the guides on networking, creating an elevator pitch, and writing blogs extremely helpful. And I even know now how SEO works! I used Wes’ words to instruct my website designers so I sound like I know what I am talking about! I will certainly be following the checklist the next time I write a blog. I would recommend this book highly for any business owner who has expertise in their own industry, but is bewildered by marketing and  how to promote themselves in the current environment.

The Simple Manifesto is a book that provides practical and valuable information for any small business to use and implement. It is outside the square thinking which challenges conventional business philosophies and principles. It questions the busy-work mindset of today’s business world and challenges you to focus on what matters, on being creative not prescriptive. The book is a mixture of honest advice, tips and tricks with real life examples of both business and life experiences which is appropriate since life and business are intertwined  delicately as one. At the end of the day it is up to each individual to remain open minded and flexible to make the most out of this book.
