I actually started reading the third book in the middle of reading the 4-Hour Work Week when I needed a break from the madness!

Meatball Sundae: Is Your Marketing out of Sync?

The book is a little bigger than a paperback (7x5in) but feels tiny compared to the ‘normal’ hardbacks in my pile. But there are 232 pages of relatively dense information, so it’s not the speed read I’d feared.
