Purchased on Mighty Ape

This book is a present full of exciting little treasures. The way it is written keeps you entertained, every so often there is a ‘drinks break’ with great recipes and the book is full of pictures and colour. So much more than simply a business book! Drinks manual, marketing bible, business advice, how to fufill your dreams through simply hard work and determination even when every bastard is saying NO!


If you haven't heard of the success of 42 Below Vodka you must have been living under a rock! Initially brewed by Wellington advertising man Geoff Ross in his garage, everything about this vodka was audacious, from the very notion of making high-end vodka Downunder to its shock-and-awe advertising campaigns and the fact that it would go on to beat the world's great brands in international vodka competitions. But the most remarkable thing about 42 Below was the way it stole the world's bartenders' hearts and eventually attracted the attention of liquor giant Bacardi, which paid millions to buy the brand two years ago. Every Bastard Says No is the rollicking tale of how Geoff Ross, his wife Justine and their business partners and loyal staff risked all and worked their butts off to do what New Zealanders so dream of doing but so rarely manage: build a brand that makes the world sit up and take notice. It's an inspirational business story that will appeal to entrepreneurs, business students, creatives, and everyone who loves a brave - and ultimately successful - little Kiwi battler.

'This book will bamboozle those who look for neat classifications. Is it a business book? A biography? Or a beverage bible? I don't know - and it doesn't matter. It works.It's brilliant! Like 42 Below. ' Mark Weldon, CEO New Zealand Stock Exchange
