Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have had a Google+ account for some time, but really hadn't done much with it - until I read this book. There is so much to it that it's really pretty tough to wrap your arms around without a 'guided tour'. Guy Kawasaki simplifies and explains in detail the best ways to get the most out of your Google+ account. He also shows how Google is wrapping all of its products into Plus. I use social media for personal and business purposes. After reading this book, I started implementing some of the suggestions and was amazed that I was getting more responses via Google+ than by facebook for my business - and with a smaller number of contacts, too! Will it overtake or even dominate other forms of social media? I don't know, but I do know that you shouldn't ignore Google+ and this is THE book on the topic as of right now. The ebook is very, very affordable and worth every penny.
