Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought Rob Brown's book almost as soon as it was published and immediately started reading it. With 20-plus years of B2B PR experience behind me and having been an enthusiast for social media for some years, I hoped the book would confirm much of what I already knew and maybe give me some pointers towards areas that I might need to brush up on. And that, broadly, is what the book has done.

For those practitioners relatively new to social media, the first half of Rob's book talks about the changing nature of communications, media fragmentation, relinquishing control, the emergence of new channels (blogs, wikis, RSS, podcasts, bookmarking, social networks), search engine optimisation, new ethics and the "the battle for influence at the digital frontier".

The second half looks at what that "battle" means for the PR industry. Rob suggests ways in which PR practitioners will need to reconsider their communications 'mix', describes some tools of the trade - from social media releases to evaluation and measurement - before reminding us about some potential "bear traps" and wondering about "the next big thing".

As the social media world is constantly evolving, occasionally some of Rob's descriptions of the new channels and the major players are slightly dated - a lot can change in the months between submitting a manuscript and the book finally hitting the bookshelves (as I know from my own experience in writing a book). For example, I found myself thinking "you could have mentioned ..." only to realise that the company or application I had in mind was only recently launched.

Some omissions are probably more a matter of personal choice (as you would expect with something so essentially focused on individual interaction).

Rob combines years of valuable experience together with an impressive knowledge of the latest communication techniques in this evaluation. It's essential for any PR practitioner who feels a bit out of the electronic media loop. I was surprised by how readable the book was, as being a little bit of a technophobe, assumed it might be difficult to access. Not a bit of it. Rob's flair for language makes his book a truly enjoyable read and simplifies things in to perfectly understandable chunks. It's really well written and as other reviewers have said, is a must-have reference book for PR practitioners.

At last this topic is addressed in a skillful way which creates real understanding. It is essential reading in this increasingly competitive environment where so many, make so many mistakes. A brilliant read for the PR specialist and general marketer.
