"I highly recommend this to podcast producers, marketing, business professionals or someone with a interest in how the business of podcasting works. I have several books on podcasting. Most if not all are collecting dust on my shelf. In the first week of having this book it became the most worn, highlighted, and read book on this topic to the point it is on my desk as a direct reference to projects I am working on right now and I don't see it moving any time soon." -Brian Edie, Calgary Social and New Media Meetup Group
