The TSA’s 5 Book Travel Restriction

Posted By Bryan Eisenberg On January 9, 2008 @ 6:41 am In Books,Waiting For Your Cat To Bark | 5 Comments

bookstsa.jpg [1]The TSA’s restrictions keep getting tighter, and as Mitch Joel ponders, what would happen if you planned a long trip and were limited to 5 marketing books [2]. Mitch was kind enough to include our book, Waiting for Your Cat to Bark [3], even though it wouldn’t be on my list for obvious reasons ;)

Mitch points out that this restriction isn’t entirely unprecedented [4]. I just hope it doesn’t become a permanent reality.

If I could only travel with 5 books, I’d have to choose…

Secret Formulas of the Wizard of Ads: Turning Paupers into Princes and Lead into Gold [5] by Roy H. Williams

Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die [6] by Chip and Dan Heath

Ogilvy on Advertising [7] by David Ogilvy

Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion [8] by Robert Cialdini

Why We Buy: The Science Of Shopping [9] by Paco Underhill

I found it difficult choosing just 5. I imagine you will too.

What 5 books would you bring along?
