Comment on this summary
5 years agovery good audio book
6 years agoLots of common sense advice, and worth-while to spend the 10 minutes to read this. The reader will pick up one or the other point on which you want to spend more time on.
6 years agoThis summary clearly explains what thos book has to offer. The usefulness of this summary depends on social media savvy you are. I have done social media or some years now, so it did not tell me much new things, but if you are inexperienced, then you might first want to read this summary and then decide whether you get the whole book. If you are not experienced, this summary is not enough to get you start really well, but it is great for you to evaluate whether you will benefit from whole book.
