Basics are good but out of date


Great as reference book



Excellent Resource for Digital Marketers


I bought this copy for a colleague as my copy was of untold benefit when I was starting out in Google AdWords. Sometimes its just easier to read from a book than a screen and a multitude of this information is foundational in the adwords interface.
