Well this was a pleasant surprise to see earlier this week on Twitter:
Congrats @MackCollier! We're happy to inform you that "Think Like a Rock Star" made it to the list of best Marketing Strategy books of all time! https://t.co/qXhPM1hq1o

I did some checking on the site and found that not only was Think Like a Rock Star named the 9th best Marketing Strategy book of all-time by Book Authority, it was also named the 7th best Content Marketing book of all-time, and the 30th best Marketing book of all-time!
According to Book Authority, here’s how they decide which books make their lists, and in what position:
“How are the books in the list ranked?
Books that were chosen to be featured on BookAuthority are ranked (#1, #2, #3) based on their star rating.
The star rating for each book is calculated based on multiple signals, such as:
✔ Public mentions of the book on social media
✔ Recommendations, ratings and reviews
✔ Analyzing user behavior and sentiment
✔ Book popularity, sales history and velocity”
In short, sales, reviews and public mentions drive the placement and rankings on Book Authority’s lists. I could not be prouder to see that Think Like a Rock Star, published in 2013, is still creating this much excitement for its readers.
Thank ALL of you for your support and kind words. It means the world to me, and it is such a gift to create a book that has created value for so many others!
I have to share a funny story. A colleague of mine told me she was talking to a CMO she had met about the power of embracing your customers. The CMO immediately got all excited, said his CEO had turned him on to this great book that talked about the power of leveraging your customers as fans and letting them drive sales. My colleague said wow that’s so interesting, my friend Mack Collier has written a book just like that, called Think Like a Rock Star!
The CMO immediately exclaimed THAT’S the book! That’s the book that caused my CEO to completely change our marketing to focus on embracing and empowering our customers and turn them into fans!
I love it! If you would like to order a copy of Think Like a Rock Star, you can get it from Amazon as an ebook, or if you want a paperback copy, you can order it online from Books A Million, or online from Barnes & Noble.
