Review: Engage: The Complete Guide for Brands and Businesses to Build, Cultivate, and Measure Success in the New Web

User Review  - Goodreads

I did not enjoy reading this book, although there is some valueable information in it. But that is buried somewhere in the book. It basically takes the fun away from social media. Social Media is not that complicated, so why make it so? The End of Business As Usual was a much more enjoyable book! Read full review
