—Perry Marshall, author of Ultimate Guide to Google AdWords and 80/20 Sales and Marketing
This book reveals the inner workings of the search ad networks without using tea leaves and crystal balls. Instead, it focuses on the few strategic metrics that make a difference, and backs them up with valid data from real campaigns. It's the first book I've read that made me feel I could take data-driven action to improve my search advertising campaigns. Most importantly, I now know something that other search marketers don't.
Brian Massey, author of Your Customer Creation Equation
This is required reading for any online marketer who wants to be in the 1% of successful search engine marketers. What Richard says is right on the money and has led my own clients to realize 3X to 5X sales growth in a matter of months on mature campaigns that had been 'optimized' and managed previously by other agencies.
Kevin Milani, VP of Digital Marketing, Virtual Marketing Staff LLC
Brilliant insights. Advanced material. Don't think, just buy it. Rich is one of those guys that makes you sit up and listen closely. His knowledge of the data behind AdWords is quite literally unparalleled (outside a few people in Google. Maybe.). He digs in deep and makes you smirk in awe at the clever ways all that data can help you improve your account. A must read.

Top Customer Reviews
I read the first edition when it came out. This second edition is considerably updated and I especially appreciated his views on mobile and on enhanced campaigns. I don't know anywhere else that I'm going to get that kind of information. Having said that, I don't agree with everything he says, he misses a few things which suggest to me he isn't that hands on with AdWords any more, and why no mention of remarketing?
Nevertheless, the bottom line is that you're going to learn a lot from this book. Even if you're an experienced hand. If you are a beginner, I would suggest, to start with one of the other books, say the Perry Marshall one, and then move onto this when you've got a bit of practice under your belt.
My only real complaint is how the book constantly promotes the author's Adgooroo service. At times I felt that in stead of teaching me more about how to track and calculate for a campaign I was instead sold on how I should just pay for Adgooroo instead. Some parts of the book boarder on infomercial quality promotion for the product. And this I felt was over the line, and I hope the author is wise enough to tone this down and replace it with more in depth non-paid advice in future revisions of this book.
That aside, it IS a helpful read and helped get me started on the right foot. But I highly recommend picking up one of the "advanced" Adwords books after you finish reading this.
As far as PPC The author goes out of his way not to talk about it, or talk about every other subject on Internet marketing but PPC
But my absolute favorite part was when he goes into when PPC might not work for you - he gives you some alternatives that will help you:
write a book
being an "expert" on a talk show
