The Pizza Black Book.
« on: March 20, 2009, 05:18:35 AM »
Hi everyone - my first post after several months of just viewing.
I have a small Hotel in Thailand and we have recently got quite a good reputation for our Pizza - this is something I would like to develop and in searching the Internet I came across The Black Book.
I did a search here and did not find much and it was from several years ago - so I would like to know if anyone as purchased this and if so did it represent value for money?
Thanks in advance - Michael.

It's probably talked about more on the PMQ website as it has a hefty price tag that is geared towards the professional pizzeria operator.

Infomercial. Infomercial. Infomercial. I can't get over the customer-testimonial, "3 quick easy steps to success", super-inflated claims ("increase profits by 1000%!!) gibberish.

Anybody ever read this thing?

Mo,

When Kamron Karington was affiliated with PMQ and was one of their "experts", the members at the PMQ Think Tank forum at that time use to post extensively on the Black Book and would routinely trip over each other to buy copies on eBay for less than what Karington charged. That kept the spotlight on Karington and his Black Book (he also posted from time to time), but when he severed his relationship with PMQ, interest in him and the Black Book subsided. You rarely see PMQTT posts on the Black Book anymore but these threads are fairly typical of the types of posts that the book engendered: http://thinktank.pmq.com/viewtopic.php?p=9864#9864 and http://thinktank.pmq.com/viewtopic.php?p=14146#14146.

Thanks Peter. I think his secret may be that charging somebody $19 for a useless marketing book is setting sights too low. Charge them $379 for the same book and it is transformed into holy writ so life-changing you might actually need TW0 copies (for a special price of course...)
