"The College of Business at Arkansas Tech University recently hosted Dr. Jim Karrh as keynote speaker for our College to Career Conference. His task was to leave our business students with some practical guidance for their careers and at the same time capture and hold their attention for 30 minutes or so – no small task! I have to say Jim exceeded expectations on both levels. He was very entertaining and at the same time slipped some very practical and timely advice to the students as they prepare to launch their careers."
Dr. Ed Bashaw, Dean of ATU's College of Business
“Jim is a creative and disciplined marketer. He is great in the classroom and, as president of the local Professional Chapter of the American Marketing Association he was respected and effective. He straddles the academic and practitioner worlds well...a rare ability.”

“Readers should not be intimidated by this book. It’s a comfortable read, very practical, not heavy on theory or hard-to-imagine concepts.”
— Roby Brock, Producer and Host of ‘Talk Business’
“The author does a nice job of exploring a number of marketing-related topics in a concise way, bringing his business experience to bear on timely subjects (social media, celebrity endorsements, the success of Snuggies) as well as perennial issues for marketing (how to make sales conversations effective, how to weigh surveys and their results, how to obtain corporate sponsorships)…The writing is conversational, down to earth, and approachable, but also professional and full of expertise. The author's sense of humor is also appreciated and makes the book thoroughly enjoyable to read. Readers are likely to feel they're having a conversation in the copy room with their favorite leader—one of those engaging conversations about work that reenergizes and inspires innovative new ideas about how to connect with your customer and approach situations differently with proven best practices.”

“The book offers a common sense approach to a range of marketing issues. The book offers a wide range of tips and ideas that really get you thinking on some very relevant marketing issues. The book’s conversational style enables you to cover a lot of ground in a very short period of time. The chapter "The Sound of Carelessness", which discusses the challenges some companies have had naming their products and/or services, is sure to bring a smile. An informative, fun read.”
