    Social media is a crucial tool for success in business today. People are already talking about your business using social media, whether you're using it or not. By becoming part of the conversation, you can start connecting directly to your customers, as well as finding new ones, easily and inexpensively spreading. But social media marketing isn't like traditional marketing - and treating it that way only leads to frustration. Let Shama Hyder Kabani, president of Web marketing firm Marketing Zen, teach you the “zen” of social media marketing.

    What disappointed you about The Zen of Social Media Marketing?

    The information provided in this book is nothing more than what you can find of countless blogs about social media. There is ABSOLUTELY nothing new in here. Google+ ,Really? Come on. I wish someone would write a decent book about social media, with up to date information. This is not it. My grandmother knows more about social media.


    What could Shama Hyder Kabani have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Provide relevant information


    How could the performance have been better?

    Fine narration


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Very disappointing.


    Any additional comments?

    Waste of time. Not what I thought it would be about.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People who enjoy useless self help books.

    Just not that interesting. Trying too much to be like Tim Ferris, but falls way short.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Gary Vaynerchuk’s performances?

    No way.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Crush It!?

    Everything after the cover. I happen to like green.

    Can I please get my money back or credit back? This book was useless for me.

    In late 2010, thousands of hacktivists joined a mass digital assault by Anonymous on the websites of VISA, MasterCard, and PayPal to protest their treatment of WikiLeaks. Splinter groups then infiltrated the networks of totalitarian governments in Libya and Tunisia, and an elite team of six people calling themselves LulzSec attacked the FBI, CIA, and Sony. They were flippant and taunting, grabbed headlines, and amassed more than a quarter of a million Twitter followers.

    Adam K says: "Awesome book. Felt like a hacker fiction novel!"
