    Story
    "Nice Intro to Google+ but limited business value"
    Would you try another book from Chris Brogan and/or Chris Brogan?

    Yes.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Chris Brogan again?

    Yes


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    A little slower than I would like but still good.


    Do you think Google+ for Business needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Definitely. This book is a nice entry to Google+ but there should be more substance to the use of the Google+ for businesses.


    Any additional comments?

    Nice book if you are looking to learn more about Google+ but limited if you are looking for marketing strategies.

    Story
    "Everything I didn't know about Google + & now do?"
    What did you love best about Google+ for Business?

    Everything I didn't know about Google + and now do well sort of! Chris Brogans content is well planned and executed. His narration is quite clear. He covers all the aspects of Google + that I have found. I haven't been to his site yet to follow up on the changes that googs has just initiated but Chris sounds like the kind of thoughtful person who would get it done right. Sometimes Google + seems too simple ones sort of looking for more facilities to do things then other times it throws one into some confusion and thats where the "well sort of! comes in. Maybe he will follow me after this...


    What other book might you compare Google+ for Business to and why?

    Don't know of one


    What about Chris Brogan’s performance did you like?

    Clear and concise with just a touch of wit from time to time


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Dumb question!

    Story
    "Useless!"
    Would you try another book from Chris Brogan and/or Chris Brogan?

    No


    What was most disappointing about Chris Brogan’s story?

    Dull


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Chris Brogan?

    Narration was fine.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    This book is awful. Barely an intelligent thought in there. Even for someone who has never gone to Google+, or used it for more than 15 minutes, it's a waste of time since you could learn all told in the book in 15 minutes. For a decent book on Google and Google+, check out Jeff Jarvis' "What Would Google Do". There one learns something from a book riddled with intelligent and new ideas.

    Story
    "Well worth a listen if you are considering Google+"
    What made the experience of listening to Google+ for Business the most enjoyable?

    I found this very easy to listen to, full of value and good tips. Chris presents/reads well and there are good examples of Google + users and uses to give you a big picture feel for why you might want to spend the time in G+.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm glad I took the time to listen to this book. Thanks Chris

    Story
    "Not made for audio"

    The content of this book is decent for an overview of Google+, but the subject doesn't transfer well to audio. You can almost visualize how the pages are arranged as the narrator awkwardly attempts to read text and snippets that make sense on the printed page but are difficult for an audio book. I recommend the print version.

    Story
    "I would click the google + button"
    What disappointed you about Google+ for Business?

    All common sense if you spent a litle time fooling with Google +. Good manuel for someone who has no experience with social media websites. I might have rated higher if I was brand new to the space.


    Has Google+ for Business turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No not at all.


    What aspect of Chris Brogan’s performance would you have changed?

    Nothing it was very personal-


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    lots of nice tips for the new user.

    "Iteration"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Some great tips for Google +, but author just kept repeating same tips over and over giving tips different names.

    Story
    "Excelent "Human Business" approach to Google Plus"
    If you could sum up Google+ for Business in three words, what would they be?

    Simple Actionable Strategy


    What did you like best about this story?

    Chris Brogan makes it easy to understand how this new social network can be used in your business. There are many real world examples of users and companies that are currently using google+ effectively. Not only did I find this audiobook a good guide to getting your business up and running on Google+. I also found it covered many strategies and mindsets for online communication that could be applied too other social network.
