As a professional in the area of social media I would suggest this book as an great intro for anyone who wishes to get into the social media world. If there is one part that I was hoping for more is a better social media tools analysis. To be fair this is an ever shifting environment which could render such an analysis obsolete few months later. If you are looking for a solid discussion on social media this is a good place to start. (The Audible production is excellent, vividly read, very pleasant to listen to).
