1. George Takei rocks.
2. George fans can never get enough Takei, and he remains in top form throughout the book.
3. Social marketers (or anyone with a business facebook page) will find it full of useful tips at a bargain price.
4. George is a promoter of social justice, and this is a cool way to send him some bucks to say thanks!
In this review, I will focus on reasons #3.
As someone who occasionally dabbles in social media consulting clients are sometimes surprised about things I suggest they do. For example, go see the movie "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never." It sounds crazy, I know, until you see how quickly that kid fills concerts without traditional advertising.
I have a recommendation for anyone learning social media, read Takei. Read "Lions and Tigers and Bears!" It is worth the price for the book for the first chapter alone, which does the best job I have ever seen of explaining how to think about your social media fans, even when you are trying to sell them something, even when you are trying to promote justice. Takei is a grand master on "selling the Takei way." Seriously, spend 10 bucks on the ebook if you have a business facebook page.
"Grand master?" You say. "You can't be serious."
I am totally serious. George has, as I write this, "5,396,628 likes" with "4,162,060 talking about this." Yet he writes an aweee shuuccks this is just little old actor me book. Make no mistake, he is a social media wizard. The cover of the book is totally appropriate for the content within.
Fans will enjoy the book. I hope others trying to do great things through the internet will also discover the Takei way. The world desperately need more people like him. Help us Takei, you are our only hope.
OK: Takei in the Star Wars world just feels weird.
So for writing, I would give it 4 stars, but I didn't understand a lot of it because the examples were unreadable. I couldn't finish it because I was too frustrated. Sorry, George. I will continue to read your posts on Facebook and give the odd positive comment there.I don't understand people writing all those negative comments. If they don't like GT's writing, they shouldn't visit his FB page.
It took me just a few hours to read, so not a heavy investment of your time. You'll have no trouble finding time to finish it. I couldn't put it down.
This book doesn't bring anything new to the table. While on Takei's previous book (oh myyy) he shares a lot of information on how the Facebook works and several tips for running a successful Facebook page, this book doesn't bring none of that. He only expands stories already told on the previous book.
The Kindle version is awful. The images are very small and have very low resolution. Even double tapping them you won't be able to read what is written on them. Either because the images are still too small or because the image has low resolution and when zoomed in the text gets pixelated, preventing you from reading it. Very poor quality.
Buy Oh myyy instead and skip this one.
