Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Solomon's book assumes you've probably at least seen a computer once in the last decade and focuses instead on the concepts that make social media marketing successful, exploring ways to build social capital and manage your online reputation. Even better, she seeds her chapters with specific (God bless you, really) examples of how people tend to do things on social media and how those same things can be done better.
Best of all, this guide is actually readable - concise and funny, and featuring convenient end-of-section "bottom lines" which sum up the preceding ideas and will likely be a godsend to anyone who doesn't have the time to take full advantage of this book by reading it to cover to cover. (Which you should.)
