So what can the reader expect to learn from the book?

Simply stated, how to look at the world from a factful and data-oriented manner.

The book simplifies the marketing plan into a single page, divided up into nine squares.

Each square is given a full chapter to explain what should go in that square.

No decent marketing plan would fit on one page, no doubt there. But in your mind it can and should.

The Asus Transformer 3 Pro (official website) is now available with either a Core i5 or Core i7 processor, 8 / 16 GB of RAM, and 256 / 512 GB SSD. Pretty standard in terms of modern-day computing needs.

These specs are offered at a lower base price than the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. We believe this might entice some users to abandon the tech giant for this shy (but shiny!) newcomer.

SanDisk Ultra II was the SSD drive I’ve decided to buy (purchase link) based on Amazon’s top selling SSD drives list. It came third on the list in the top Internal Solid State Drives offering SATA 3 connectivity. The 1800+ favorable user reviews helped me to seal the deal. I needed that SSD drive for my Lenovo cheap laptop. I was getting tired of the long waiting time for Windows to load and for my applications to work.
