I have been a fan of the Dummies series for years and I recently started doing more SEO/ORM/ and online marketing for a start up I work for. I bought the book to help me understand more in depth about QR codes and how to best place/market them on materials we send out. To be honest the book is well written and gives you a great outline. The reason I'm giving it 3 stars is because you can find all this information online for free. I'm a person that likes to read hard copies of materials so I bought this for that reason. If you know nothing about QR codes or how to market them then please by all means buy this book. But if your a computer research junkie then just search and read through several QR and entrepreneur sites for tips and tricks.

Within 15 minutes of starting to read Joe's book, I, a late adopter if there ever was one, had downloaded a reader to my phone and my iPad, connected with one QR (Joe's own website), and began to see how QR Codes might be useful. I write about nonprofit organizations so wanted to get up to speed about how nonprofits can use QR Codes for promotion, fundraising, volunteer work, etc. I wasn't disappointed. Joe's background is in nonprofit so he included plenty of examples of how QR Codes fit into charitable work. I highly recommend the book...a plus is that it is a quick read.

I have to admit, when I sat down to read 'QR Codes for Dummies' - I thought it would be, well, boring. I thought I had a good handle on what QR codes could do - but I was wrong!

Yes, I knew I could board a plane with a QR code, but I had no idea I could scan a QR code to dial a phone number or 'Like' a Facebook page!

Do you know why QR Codes are more effective than a barcode? Yeah..I didn't either but you will after reading this book!

And if you're targeting millennials, you'd best read this book to learn how this target group is using QR codes. Same goes for women (and men).

Learn how to create your own QR codes and what to look for in a generator, including how to create those artsy QR codes.

Also included are practical tips on making your site mobile-friendly and what consumers expect from QR codes as well as what may be the most important chapter in the book - how to PROMOTE your QR code. If that's not the most important chapter, it might be the chapter on measurement - who knew there were so many data points to gather and analyze? Waters does a thorough job explaining the how and why of code analytics.

Not sure how you might use QR codes? Waters outlines many ways different individuals and organizations might utilize this technology...from teachers to job-seekers, fundraisers to just plain fun.

The 10 Practical Uses for QR Codes is also a treasure trove of ideas, the final one is unbelievable!

Overall, a solid, quick read that will definitely answer any questions you have about whether you should use QR codes, how to do so and how to determine whether they've accomplished what you wanted.
