For Immediate Release book by 5WPR CEO Ronn Torossian
For Immediate Release book by 5WPR CEO Ronn Torossian

I have recently become a contributor to Business Insider, and I welcome your thoughts and feedback there.

A column I posted there today had my summer reading which I wanted to share:

  • “Reputation Rules: Strategies for Building Your Company’s Most Valuable Asset” by Daniel Diermeier – Book spoke about the vast importance of reputation and is vital reading for anyone wanting to work at a PR Agency, marketing or I believe any business.  Just great reading.
  • The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine” by Michael Lewis – Great business book with a unique vantage point on who – and the personalities – responsible for much of the recent financial and economic crisis in the world.
  • Confessions of an Advertising Man” by advertising legend David Ogilvy – which I read at least 1x a year and always enjoy it.  A must read.

Am super excited about the release in in mid-October of my 1st book,For Immediate Release: Shape Minds, Build Brands, and Deliver Results with Game-Changing Public Relations”, which is available at Barnes and Noble.

Owning a NY PR Firm its necessary to always be reading and I enjoy it.

Ronn Torossian is the CEO of 5WPR, a Top 25 U.S. PR Agency.
