A whole new kind of reality. If you like stories that are stranger than fiction, you'd probably enjoy these gems.

Who doesn't want to read about big business getting it wrong? This book will appeal to anyone who has ever been enraged, frustrated, or just let down by a company they thought they could trust. And that's probably all of us.
Many of the examples in this authoritative, but accessible, catalogue of catastrophe, are true David and Goliath tales of the little guy defeating the corporate giant.
But, where this book really scores, is that it isn't mere schadenfreude. We're not just smirking (or sometimes laughing) at the corporate blunders - we're learning too.
If you work in PR, marketing, social media, or have any kind of communications role, there are lessons to be learned from each example.
This is schadenfreude with a purpose. Highly recommended.

In the introduction, the author explains that this began as a slideshare presentation. Unfortunately, those roots show through.

Don't get me wrong, this is an excellent collection of case studies, it's just that I was expecting more.. more insight into social media. Instead, the book reads like a collection of back of the envelope analysis of individual cases - with just the barest of narrative attempts to link them together.

This would have been a great kindle single. Not because I begrudge the authors the couple of extra dollars- it would just have managed my expectations better. Having said that, if you work in the industry, or in marketing, this will be a very useful resource. If you don't, this is a good, fun look at corporations floundering in a world of newly empowered consumers.

I read this on an iPad2. For me, the video links were appalling - I had jump out of the book & search on YouTube. Hopefully this will be sorted, but for a book written by digital experts, it's a bad look.

#FAIL but for this book. We all know social media screw-ups but these in particular were not that great, instead they were predictible. The story telling of the cases is horrible (btw, we're talking about social media, story telling is important).
