Book Reviews

Check out what some of our readers say below.
  • Everything you need know about explainer videos in a neat and concise guide- Not how to use video tools or anything like that but more the different types of videos (what works and what doesn't for a given domain) and the different ways they can be created (and the pitfalls that can occur). He even goes into how to write the scripts and where to market the videos. I used Ben to create some explainer videos several years ago and have never regretted that decision. If you think you might need an explainer video to tell a story of your product or service this book is for you.

    Everything you need to know about Explainer videos
  • We were having a hard time getting our product features understood by potential investors. They understood the business model but didn't grasp the product until we did a demonstration. When you have 10 minutes to pitch investors, it doesn't leave a lot of time for a demo. After trying a number of different approaches, we decided on an explainer video. This book does a great job preparing you for the process. The book starts off by walking you through the process of selecting a vendor and the production process. Then, about mid-way though you get to the fun part - how to figure our your message, audience and the like. This is a great book if you have a communication problem you need to solve. The lessons in the book can be applied to more than just an explainer video. You can use it as a refresher whenever you need to hone your message. The book was easy to read and full of great advice.

    We needed a quick video to replace lengthy product demos

  • Great book! It's easy and concise, just like making an explainer video with Ben's company, Promoshin ( Just like my own explainer video, the book breaks down really complicated ideas and sums them up so that anyone can understand them. Pictures may say a thousand words, so this book tells you the many ways to use pictures (and videos). You'll refer to it again and again and not just for videos, but anytime you need a few words to make a big impact. Thanks Ben!

    Great book! It's easy and concise
  • Brilliant book. I am in the middle of having Ben and his team prepare a video for me and the advice is invaluable.

    I read it twice yesterday,the day I bought it and once more today. Not only is the book well written but the information it contains is incredible. Ben is clearly second to none when it comes to the business of animated videos.

    The scary part about reading the book is that it makes you realize how much is involved in making an animated video. And not only must the video look good it needs to form part of an elaborate ecosystem for the product or service you are selling which has to be amazing too.

    So my advice to anyone is that if you are thinking of making an animated video don`t do it without buying this book and then once you have understood the concepts involved get Ben and his team to do the job for you. its as simple as that. My video is not yet done but I just know it will be awesome.

  • My clients and I have loved working with Promoshin. They provide the best videos and customer service. Their patience with our revisions and their persistence on delivering a great video is something that should be highlighted in terms of how they do business.


    My clients and I have loved working with Promoshin

  • This was the most succinct way I've seen on how to make explainer videos. It was clear, concise, and did a good job of explaining options, trade-offs and likely costs for various types of explainer videos. Plus, it was fun to read!

    And did a good job of explaining options

  • Great read! I've used Ben's video explainer for my small business in the past. I will continue to use his creativity for future endeavors. This book is a easy read and gives me more understanding of his business in making explainer videos as well as why I need an explainer video for my business too.

  • Great Book!! Clever, funny, and right on point. I have produced an explainer video with Ben Marvazi's company, Promoshin, and they are incredible as well. If you dont have an explainer video for your company this is a great place to start. It will help you determine how a video can help your company and will lay the ground work for your part of the production process.


    Great Book!! Clever, funny, and right on point.

  • This book is a great read for a 1st time buyer of an explainer video to grow their brand. I personally purchased a video through the author's company, and what I believed I would do with the video just scratches the surface of the possibilities after reading this book.

  • Ben really knows his stuff...found his book to be very insightful as we are going to be implementing some very interesting marketing tips immediately.


    A must have for today's entrepreneur.
  • A whole lot of information about explainer videos in a condensed, easy-to-read format. All you need to know if you are looking to get one made. I wish I had had this available before I started searching for the best way to make one as it would have sped up the whole process. Ben Marvazi's transparency throughout the book is remarkable. My only word of caution would be that information can sometimes be our enemy, and while I am happy to have learned so much on the topic, I need to realize the team working on my video still knows infinitely more than I do. So, the one thing I would add to Chapter 5, relating to the questions you should ask when contracting someone or a team, would be about ensuring the provider you want to work with will speak up in case they disagree with your requests. After all, if we clients are contracting such a pool of skills and knowledge, why not best use it? This is maybe where the book adds the most value, i.e. by explaining to us in a very efficient way the different components of the producing process and how they interact with each other, allowing us to then have an open mind when starting the whole thing, which in turn should lead to a higher-quality outcome.

  • Love this Book
    So much value

  • If you want to do better business, you want to read this book and seriously take into account these strategies. As I read it, I appreciated the wisdom and insight, first and foremost. But I also enjoyed the laughter that I received through a witty writing style and some great humor. Message delivered masterfully, and message received. Previously, I’d never seriously considered a video for my business, as I was single-minded, thinking of “me” on film. Honestly, I didn’t like that. So when the thought of explainer videos using animation was introduced to me, I was interested, because I know two things: 1) I run a professional business, and 2) I am always open to more of the right types of business. Explainer videos can do that.

    Helpful Information on the Art of Explainer Videos

  • I liked this book. It taught me a lot about the explainer video production process, and what to watch out for in case I ever make one for my website. The author did a really nice job of explaining the tradeoffs between the "artsy" stuff that can cost money vs the down to earth decisions that can get the job done without wasting money. And some of the cartoon humor cracked me up! I recommend this book to anyone who is thinking of getting an explainer video made, or who is interested in the production process behind the scenes.

    A competent book written by an author in the trenches

  • We were having a hard time grasping the best way to create digital content that was meaningful to our customers. We used everything from consultants to full on training, but we never hit the mark. Finally, we found Ben's book, and it really opened our eyes. It was easy to understand, and it explained it in a way where we could take action and really drive great content.
