Compact and easy to carry around or just leave near your work area without taking up space. Information is easy to understand, straight forward and well presented. The instructions are direct without frills and a lot of useless commentary. I am new to social media and don’t care much for it, but I recognize that it has become a huge part of our culture so I’d better get with it. This book is great for a beginner.
