However, because these works are generally some years older and/or able to be reprinted as they are open source, the book does not bring the reader right up to date on the latest thinking and developments either by these experts or others. But that's true for virtually any book on this topic, and if you use this to teach or inform yourself, be sure to supplement it with work in journals, newspapers, recent conferences etc.
Overall, though, it was a great idea to pull this together, and is a much needed contribution to the field of social media.
Overall, the subject presented is interesting, but this book lacks depth and detail.
