If you're looking for detailed steps on how to manage your digital reputation then this is not the book to read . Rather it providesprovides generalities and examples of what the online world offer today and the author makes some predictions of what may come tomorrow. Overall it was an entertaining book with some nuggets of knowledge.
This is an excellent read if you are completely uninitiated and need an absolute beginners guide to digital reputation management. Examples like: "If you're an animal lover you probably shouldn't talk about how good the veal was at your favorite restaurant last night" Made it very difficult for me to finish this book.
This is a great update to the authors' previous book on the same subject - Wild West 2.0.
