When I found out Google was developing it's own take on a social network platform I couldn't wait to see what they came up with! It was looking promising - I have always liked Google's understated style and was impressed with the reworking of the common social network feature list into something a bit cooler. It also didn't have the Facebook bloat and seemed leaner, meaner and cleaner... Problem was most people just didn't get it and to be honest still don't.
Guy shows a very interesting angle and explains why it hasn't quite reached critical mass, why he thinks (and I agree) it will and how the intelligent individual should get involved at this stage. I can't emphasise enough how well he has expressed it.
So why only 4 stars? I am a long time follower of Guy's work, have read a lot of his books and watched his presentations. I felt in this book he spent a bit too much time handholding the reader through the technical basics of using G+ - although there are some nuggets of wisdom he has found and shared. I'm sure this approach was purposeful to get everyone interested but for me it felt a bit like fluff.
Overall a very interesting, thought provoking and inspirational way to spend two hours and two pounds.
