    I Also Recommend:

    Not as cool as the cover art.

    I am one of those poor older readers who is now pursuing a new career. One of my job hunt goals is to learn about social media and the role it will play as I navigate the job market again. Unfortunately this book did not help at all.

    The text is dry and difficult to comprehend and I often felt like the author was talking down to me instead of reaching out to help.

    I say skip it.
