In lively detail, Godin looks at ways companies such as Napster, Hotmail, GeoCities, even Volkswagen have successfully launched ideaviruses. Godin provides all the ingredients so anyone can start their own ideavirus epidemic. He identifies key factors to show how any business, large or small, can use ideavirus marketing. Now all businesses can succeed in a world that just doesnt want to hear it anymore from the traditional marketers.
