James Taylor on His New Book
Customer Experience Matrix
JUNE 29, 2007
It has now been released (you can order through Amazon or James or Neil), so I asked James for a few comments to share.

His introduction promises to replace the Four P’s and traditional brand marketing with a new paradigm for the digital age. Don’t you just love a new paradigm? And that’s my fundamental problem with this book.
