  1. “OMG Bradley’s in this book!” screamed Nicole. In the true spirit of my industry (investor relations and corporate compliance), here is my material disclosure: I am a featured marketing “thought-leader” (coughcough) in this book – thus I am probably far from unbiased to write a review. 

  2. David explains “agile marketing” techniques I admit it. I’m a David Meerman Scott fan. I’ve read all of his books and every edition of The New Rules of Marketing & PR. This new 5th edition brings new examples, new social media tools like Periscope, and ways to integrate marketing with sales. 

  3. Tired of social media books with all fluff and no meat? Try this on for size. Tired of social media platitudes and want some ideas you can use READ THIS BOOK. David has tons of real life examples on how social media works for business, consumer, non profit and more: where it works, how it works and how it can work for YOU.I now have all five editions of this book and like the first four, this one will soon be filled with my post-it flags, sidebar notes and the “action list” I create for myself while reading.Don’t just get it- use it!
