About: Chris writes to the individual who is looking to slowly integrate into the online world. His overarching theme is about being honest, create and share something of real value, and bring others along on that journey – mostly while doing so on your blog and Twitter.


The amount of his practical advice and where he points the reader to find value online is incredible. I think the most beneficial part of the book is how he reorients the reader to the real principles of new communication platforms i.e., sharing, authenticity, honesty, value, friendliness, professionalism, and collaboration.  


3+ Take-Aways:
1. “Write what you’re capable of sustaining.”
2. “If you’re not out looking for customers, don’t moan that you don’t have any.”
3. “The way to build relationships and get more business is to help other people get business.”
4. “Commenting is just as important as blogging.”

5. “Maintain a presence.”
