Hiya crzylou,

Welcome to the forums.

The most recent book on marketing that I read and really liked was Seth Godin's book Purple Cow.

It's definitely not a set of guidelines for how to market or sell or advertise, if that's what you are looking for, but it is thought provoking and interesting.

I recommend donít make me think by author Steve Krug.

The front page tag line ďa common sense approach to web usabilityĒ its about how your customers should not have to click more than three times to get to the item they are searching for.

I'm not really sure that he's pushing the 3-click rule myth, but I'd definitley agree with the recommendation.

Excellent book if you are building a web-based business.
