This Marketing Roundup features entrepreneurial successes, Warby Parker and Ring, user centric marketing, the state of social isolation and social media today & Bill Gate’s top 5 books to read this summer. #MarketingMondays
1. Over 400 Startups Are Trying to Become the Next Warby Parker. Inside the Wild Race to Overthrow Every Consumer Category
Wharton professors, venture capitalists, and entrepreneurs are fueling an entire generation of Warby Parkers. Now there are more than 400 startups tackling products from toothbrushes to bras. What could go wrong?
2. Untethered: A Primer on Social Isolation
At a moment when bringing people together in networks, communities, and movements is so vital, Untethered offers a crash course on what’s keeping us apart. It’s written for leaders, entrepreneurs, and funders with an appetite for solving big challenges.
3. Here’s a Radical Idea: User-Centered Marketing, Built on Mutual Respect
We’re still living inside the idea that big data is the future of marketing.

4. 5 books worth reading this summer
By Bill Gates

What makes a genius tick? Why do bad things happen to good people? Where does humanity come from, and where are we headed? – Bill Gates
5. What Can You Learn From Ring’s Astounding Success?
Many people will write the history on why Ring became an enormously successful company and why it became a real-world unicorn in a world when many startups are anointed that merely on paper. Since I had a ringside seat to the company before it really existed all the way through the end I thought I’d offer my version and what I think it means for our future.
