I noticed and appreciated the 5 principles of Momentum (agility through analytics, customer focus, integration, content curation, cross pollination) were each presented in a precise format:
Where the concept of the principle was colorfully presented and explained
~ Principle in in action
~ Next level
How the principle can be amplified (example: Agility to Growth Hacking).
How the reader can implement the principle
~ Best tools & practical tips for implementation
~ Examples of companies getting it right
~ Takeaway highlights of the main points of the chapter (love this)
The above-mentioned format is what I believe is the secret of the books remarkability.
To be completely honest, it was hard to imagine how Shama was going to follow up The Zen of Social Media Marketing (my go-to social media strategy book), but she did, with a vengeance :) If you have any interest in digital marketing, brand building, or getting ahead with content marketing, I give this book my highest recommendation.
Momentum presents a clear guide aimed at delivering marketing success. In less than a month after finishing this book, its principles have already been integrated as a significant guiding factor in my next project. I’ve taken it as a breath of inspiration in part due to the solid content within and having much respect for the author. Shama is an extremely talented visionary and leader who has followed her passion in life and continues to make a meaningful impact in the world through her work. If you have the chance to read this book, all I can say is don’t miss the out! #marketade
In her new book Momentum, Shama Hyder shares five essential principles to building your business and relationships, in the exponentially fast-changing digital age.

Not only will you be glad that you did, but your clients and customers will be happy too!
