Laughably weak - has nothing to do with Marketing,
This review is from: Facebook Marketing: Leverage Social Media to Grow Your Business (Paperback)
The blurb above says the author has written 112 books, and the blurb in this 2009 book says 108, I am surprised it is not higher as 'writing a book' seems to be mostly copying and pasting screenshots and rephrasing the help text from Facebook. To be fair he has also asked a few pundits to share 'secrets' with him. None of them seem to be that qualified to do so and mostly it is the same pundit. What is really disappointing about this book though, beyond the lack of content and poor style is that it is totally missold. The book spends nearly all its time taking the reader through making a page and other basic features of being a Facebook *user*. Little if any time is devoted to *marketing* in Facebook. Where are the case studies of organisations and campaigns that have been successful? Where is the analysis? Where are the trends? What should one bear in mind (beyond the chillingly obvious, 'don't spam')? There is a great book to be written about social media and marketing. This is so very not it.
