Descripción del producto
--The Times (London)
"Gets inside Apple's branding and marketing to explain its directness and power."
"Ken Segall has literally captured lightning in a bottle. Insanely Simple reveals the secret of Steve Jobs's success with such clarity, even we non-geniuses can make use of it. Ken shows us how to cut through the cobwebs of fuzzy thinking, bureaucracy and mediocrity, and clearly see what's most essential--and therefore most important."
--Steve Hayden, legendary Apple creative director, author of the "1984" Super Bowl commercial
Descripción del producto
As ad agency creative director, Ken Segall played a key role in Apple's resurrection, helping to create such critical marketing campaigns as "Think Different" and naming the iMac.
This book makes you a fly on the wall inside a conference room with Steve Jobs, and on the receiving end of his midnight phone calls. You'll understand how his obsession with Simplicity helped Apple perform better and faster, sometimes saving millions in the process.
Segall brings Apple's quest for Simplicity to life using fascinating (and previously untold) stories from behind the scenes. Through his insight and wit, you'll discover how companies that leverage this power can stand out from competitors--and individuals who master it can become critical assets to their organizations.

Segall, worked as a marketing provider to Apple and many other large IT companies such as Dell and Intel. He derives many of his stories from his work experience with multiple companies, and compares and contrasts the practices of particular companies and the outcome. For instance, Segall explores when Jobs decided that Apple needed a new branding campaign and was able to launch the “think different” campagain within a month, while its competitor, Dell, had not created a successful campaign after 6 months.
The "simple stick" idea is explored through this narrative, providing real life experiences and not shabby, outdated business models and also shows the importance of utilizing the “simple stick” in marketing. Segall's admiration for Jobs created a narrative-style book, full of stories that allowed the reader to see how Job's worked and what in turn worked for the company. However, there are various times through the book, where the author’s admiration did not allow him to think outside of this context and easily could be comprehended as “What would Apple Do?” theme.
Overall, the insight into Apple was extremely helpful; however ironically, the book could use some simplifying. If one is able to filter out the lessons from the stories, it may be helpful, but if one would like a step-by-step guide for management, marketing and positive business practices, this may not be a practical resource. I am a University of Baltimore student, enrolled in an entrepreneurship course and this was one of my recommended reading. I enjoyed this book and would recommend this for nascent business owners and other entrepreneur students as the marketing strategies discussed could provide a plethora of ideas that one continue building upon.
