An awsome read in simple language to the pitfalls of social meadia. Understand who see's your blogs and how you may be effected by statements you would have published considering benign then end up having to defend ones statement. Great book looking forward to your next one. Happy to read , Al

As a small business owner with a website, I’ve referred to this book many times. I can look up the question I have, I can read the answer and get a feel for how to handle different situations. It is so easy to understand! This is one of the few books I’ve read by an attorney who actually can explain things so that anyone can understand them. I highly recommend this book for anyone posting online or with a website.

Interesting and relevant read for business owners and consumers alike.
