A good overview. The authors work with many different customers and I'd have liked to see more examples and more evidence of commercial results. Most of the data on results comes from a McKinsey survey which I find unreliable. (Managers self-reporting improvements doesn't seem like an unbiased group.)

More success stories and hard commercial benefits, please.

Not as awesome as I had hoped. Nothing particularly groundbreaking, some neat insights and short case-studies.

Got this book to get my head around 'social' and its business applications. It provide good starter frameworks and approaches. Cases studies are pretty lame - lots of statement of obvious without any insight (for ex, the company I work for is a case study and it was quite 'amusing' to read about supposed accomplishments and benefits). I think I will get more out of this book when I have deeper understanding - plan to re-read this after I go through other 'social' books/papers.

oh boy, this book is hard work. it has alot of gems but unfortunately very badly written. Each sentences are very long and dense. Alot of time I had to re-read a sentence multiple times just to get the gist of it. However other times, the book shy away from details. Lacking in concrete examples and actions. It has good stuff in it, but be prepared to do alot of hardwork to get anything out of it.

No business should add social media unless it has a well-formed, strategic plan in place on how to integrate it into all units, evaluate its use and be flexible and open to change, and make it benefit the business goals and objectives.

There is some very good content in this book though I feel that The Connected Company is a better option.
Kristian Norling
