    If you are even considering getting into Twitter, get this book!, September 13, 2010
    This review is from: The Definitive Twitter Guide: Making Tweets Work for Your Business: 30 Twitter Success Stories From Real Businesses and Non-Profits (Paperback)
    I started reading this book and almost immediately started saying things like, “I didn’t know that”, or “Well, that makes sense, why didn’t I think of that?”, or even a few versions of “Huh?”. The book isn’t written over my head, nor is it under my ability. Let me give you a better idea. I’m no genius. I frequently misspell frequently misspelled words. I’m no slouch either. I’m proud of the fact that I essentially taught myself much of what I needed to know in order to pass the tests that helped get me in a classroom. I guess I’m average.

    But in being average, I feel that I’m like a lot of people out there. I use Twitter, but probably not to the full potential. I have a blog, but I’m sure I could do more with it. Just like a lot of other people out there. Given that, I feel uniquely qualified to tear into this book and give it a good once-over.

    I think this book is essential for those who want to use Twitter for more than telling us what you are making for dinner. When I talk to young people, many want to start some sort of business. That’s great, and for those people I suggest finding ways to use Twitter to their best advantage. The Definitive Twitter Guide should be your first stop.

    This book is extremely well written, to the point that it could hold my attention long enough for me to read it, start following it, and get up here and write a bunch of words about it. If you are like me, young enough to use Twitter but old enough to be slightly intimidated by the tech, Shannon makes the information accessible.

    The PF guy in me wants to leave it at “buy this book”, but the teacher in me feels the need to jump in as well. Any of my students will tell you that I rarely give “A’s”. This is one of those times.

    Discover how to save a ton of time on twitter, December 20, 2010
    By 

    This review is from: The Definitive Twitter Guide: Making Tweets Work for Your Business: 30 Twitter Success Stories From Real Businesses and Non-Profits (Paperback)
    I first started on twitter as an assignment from a company. Pretty quickly I realized twitter was making a difference in the world and didn’t know how it worked. I wanted to make a difference So I started experimenting, I spent a ton of time and made a bunch of mistakes. All of this could have been avoided if I would have had access to this book. Get this book and save your time becoming a twitter expert.

    One of the best management resources, June 9, 2011
    By 

    “The Little Black Book of Management”, is a very much needed resource. Simply put, it précis 94 of the better known management tools, techniques and concepts that have proven effective across many industries, organisations and indeed, cultures.

    In some respects I found this an unusual book to review, as I did not have to read it. In fact, the author states in the introduction “No one should read this book; you probably haven’t got the time”. So, I took her at her word! Seriously, the whole intent of this book is to act as a reference source – a quick and easy way to access a well-used and workable management tool, concept or technique, quickly, as and when it’s needed.

    Turner does a great job of setting the book out in a way that makes access easy. There are two matrices (project and day-to-day) plus a detailed index that makes finding the right tool for the particular management situation, challenge or problem, easy. I can only wonder at the amount of time taken by the author to put this resource together, let alone the creativity in developing the matrices and page set-outs. Each topic is generally described in one page (including examples) with the second page given over to diagrams, activities or exercises for photocopying.

    All of the great management concepts are here – cause and effect, brainstorming, six-sigma, SWOT, learning styles, just-in-time; the list goes on … for 94 topics!

    The title, “The Little Black Book of Management” sums up this book very well. For me, unfortunately I felt the title may have influenced the final production of the book too much. The font size is small. In some cases (e.g. diagrams), it’s tiny. The book measures 125mm by 200mm. This means that getting everything onto two pages in an easily read font is virtually impossible. Increasing the size to 150 by 230 would have made a difference – the book could still have its title “The Little Black Book of Management”.

    Although the font-size was a slight detractor for me, the book is still a great book. I believe every manager should have one close by for those times when some structure, strategy or perhaps creativity is needed to solve a problem or provide some motivation. The book would also be useful for students and an excellent resource for management trainers. As a management development consultant and writer, I’ll certainly refer to it often.

    I don’t know what I would have done without it while I was earning my MBA degree.

    Amazing.
