Set to be released in a few weeks, a new book about online marketing heroes follows a simple, yet highly-successful format: gather a group of experts, talk to them and publish a book. To get an inside look, download Steve Rubel’s Online Marketing Heroes chapter.
Allowing Steve to promote the book on his blog, Micro Persuasion, with a giveaway chapter download is great publicity – that’s how I found out about it.
What I’m confused about is why people who aren’t in the book are in the promos.
Online Marketing Heroes’ Amazon page lists these interviewees and links: Armand Morin, Brad Fallon, Brett Tabke, Carl Galletti, David Rosenblatt, and Derek Gehl. Yet, these online marketers don’t show up in the table of contents.

It’s good to know that there is a book on online marketing and its heroes. I hope I can access a copy in the web. Thank you.
To buy Online Marketing Heroes at amazon.com, click on the image of the book in this post and you’ll go directly to the sales page.
Thanks for mentioning my Online Marketing Heroes book. As to the difference in interviewees listed in the advanced material, the original list was kind of a “wish list” that the publisher wanted months and months in advance; the actual list of interviewees changed (for the better, IMHO) as the project progressed. Unfortunately, the publisher’s marketing people didn’t change the promotional materials, so there you have it.
Appreciate the explanation, Michael. It is unfortunate that the publisher didn’t update their list to match yours. Interesting to see their wish list, though. Maybe a prelude to Volume 2?
