    I absolutely agree that technology and social networking are changing the way businesses operate, often in a very good way. I've really enjoyed similar books by other authors, but for some reason have a hard time following Brian's train of thought or getting engrossed in this book. I love that he has found ways to embrace the "audience of audiences." Rather than complaining that people aren't paying attention during conferences, etc, Brian finds ways to use our human desires to share information I absolutely agree that technology and social networking are changing the way businesses operate, often in a very good way.

Rather than complaining that people aren't paying attention during conferences, etc, Brian finds ways to use our human desires to share information with our networks to his advantage by including them. Interesting that even though I love the concepts behind his writing, I have a difficult time reading his book or getting through his written thoughts.

    This book had some good points, however the layout and typesetting is visually distracting, making it needlessly harder to get through the text. I picked out specific chapters and sections from the TOC that interested me and skipped wading through the rest.

    I'm a huge fan of Brian Solis, though I think the second half of the book could have been simplified a little more in their presentation. Great information from a guy who knows what he's talking about!

    Could have been summarized into a short blog post. Filled to the brim with useless marketing jargon and overly used buzz words with hardly an original insight or perspective. Very disappointed.

    Some useful insights but otherwise very dull.

    Amazing, just amazing. Especially the last chapter before the epilogue - a must read for every manager in 2015!

    OK I will admit upfront that I find Brian Solis' books to mostly be more about providing a platform for the author to massage his ego than anything else. This book is no exception as he serves up well known trends, management case studies and what I would call well worn management experience in the real world as new "insights" from the author.

If you are new to the game of social media and its business ramifications, new to management and new to the body of knowledge of business and management then you will potentially find this book helpful.

    It's a good book but I think that the information was useful 5 - 7 years ago.

    A good book, it reminded me of Paco Underhill's "Why We Buy" without the heavy statistical side. This takes more of a case study approach, with good graphics of technical concepts such as "tag clouds". It also crosses over from a "how-to" marketing book using new technology, into strategic thinking and managing change concepts. His "Digital Darwinism" section combines a humanistic approach with the digital. To paraphrase, caring for the patron, not just servicing them, will be paramount to survi A good book, it reminded me of Paco Underhill's "Why We Buy" without the heavy statistical side.

    So far so good. It's mostly things I already intuitively knew. For instance, last couple of years it's been all about engagement and authenticity. He's going deeper by talking about things like social currency and context. I think it's a good read for many people to better usual social media to their benefit.

    This is a fascinating but sometimes scary book about how businesses will have to adapt to the new connected consumer. It was geeky enough to keep me excited almost all the way though. I wrote a longer, and perhaps better review on my blog: http://bit.ly/yAr2Pb This is a fascinating but sometimes scary book about how businesses will have to adapt to the new connected consumer.

    If you want to wade through the hype and snakeoil surrounding social media marketing, this is a must-read! It is well written and explains the effects the internet has on how people communicate with each other.

    An excellent book. Applicable to higher education institutions just as it applies to business organizations.

    An helpful, systematic account of a lot of bits and pieces out there about how to harness customer activism and conversational attitudes to help your business. Particularly helpful is the section on the decision process.

    I read a social media book every month but Brian is by far one of the best thought leaders in the social business space. This book is loaded with case studies and helpful data that Brian breaks down into tangible meaning.

    Brian is an excellent person. I love his mentality and approach to digital marketing. The book is fantastic, I believe that his books are a bit hard to read.

    Some of it was a little too high-level for me. But I did enjoy Solis' categorization of companies based on their social media strategies. Chapters 18 and 20 were my favorite.

    Great concepts and information badly put together. I struggled to extract what I needed here.

    It was ok...but it is too much like his other book, so don't bother reading both. It is also very focused on B2C...not very helpful for B2B :(

    A hodgepodge of jargon and poorly conceived ideas. I had to stop 70 pages in. At least it gave me some fodder for Message Not Received: Why Business Communication Is Broken and How to Fix It.
