Stacey has kept it simple and easy to understand. Plus she gives you diagrams so you know exactly what she is referring to.
In addition, there are a few bonus resources that are extremely helpful if you are not familiar with Hootsuite, Buffer and Manager Filter.
After reading this book, I'm feel very confident about Twitter.
I really like the fact it goes straight to the point and doesn't have any fluff in it.
The author does an excellent job in covering all the features and tools within Twitter itself as well as highlights some very useful 3rd party tools that add extra functionality, which is mostly accessible for free.
Definitely a useful reference guide and I also like the fact the author comes across as extremely genuine and promotes ethical and courteous behaviour on Tweeter.
I categorize the book in 3 sections: Beginner Basics, How-To, Advanced Topics.
The first part of the book starts with the absolute basics. If you don't have a Twitter account and don't know how to start, Stacey goes step-by-step helping you to get your account activated and explains all the terminology needed to understand Twitter-talk. Since I already had an account and had been tweeting for a while (albeit not very well!), I skipped this part. But, I could tell there was a lot of really well explained basic information while I skimmed through it.
The How-To section covers the ins-and-outs of tweeting and the all important etiquette involved.
Areas covered are:
Retweeting and Favorites
Starter ideas for what to post
@mentions, @replies, and direct messages (etiquette is very important here!)
Lists - what they are and how/why to use them (she gives great examples of how you can build relationships using lists)
Finding people to follow
How to be retweetable
When to post
The last section deals with more advanced features of Twitter. Once you get comfortable with Twitter and want to increase your presence, there are a multitude of widgets, apps, and general suggestions for managing your account that Stacey discusses. I'm not at that point yet, but it's good to know that I have the book available for when I'm ready.
Website widgets- one great widget you can install is to display your Twitter feed on your website
Linking to individual tweets - used when you want to reference a tweet in your blog, Facebook, etc.
Managing followers and who you follow
Promoting your Twitter account
As you can see, this book covers a wide variety of Twitter topics, but is done in a fashion that is very do-able. I felt much more comfortable with using Twitter after I read this book and in the 1 1/2 weeks since I started applying her suggestions, my Twitter followers have increased quite rapidly. More important, I'm having fun with it and I don't feel the least bit overwhelmed.

You can start at the beginning or search for the specific topic you have a question about or want to learn how to accomplish. So settle in with a cup of tea, a notepad and pen, your editorial or marketing calendars and your daily agenda or planner. You will want to make lots of notes and schedule action items.
Now that I have read the book through once, I am going to read it through again to make link notes, write out the examples so I can make a template to follow and check out the resources she has suggested. Finally, I will do another read through and schedule each daily-doable in my date book as an action item.
The way I see it is that in 30 days or less I will be a Twitter master. Oh...and Stacey, I can't wait for more of your Daily-Doable books.
I particularly like the format which is mainly comprised of a series of 30 daily "doables". Stacey basically walks the reader through the most important essential tasks and operations that are really pretty much required to Tweet properly. Some of these have helpful diagrams and screen-shots that are additionally helpful. Several of the "doables" are extremely useful and would not have been apparent to me even if I had been on Twitter a long time.
I would recommend this book for anyone new to Twitter as well as current users who think they may be able to tune-up their basic skills.
If you are new to Twitter, this short book will have you up and running with a solid understanding of how to tweet using some nifty tips that will have you looking as though you have been Tweeting for years.
I highly recommend it as a quick read for busy people who are considering or re-considering Twitter as a tool for social or business engagement.
