Chris Brogan, Jim Kukral and Jake McKee Review the Book; Plus More Coverage and Interviews

It’s been quite a while since I did a book coverage summary post, so I have a lot to highlight. First and foremost, there are a number of new reviews.

Chris Brogan, Jake McKee (Community Guy) and Jim Kukral all reviewed the book. Jim’s review was a video review and you can watch it on his blog. Chris Brogan’s review was mentioned by Heidi Miller on Talk It Up!

Dr. Jeffrey Barlow, of the Berglund Center for Internet Studies at Pacific University, reviewed the book for their electronic journal, Interface. There were also reviews posted by Brandon Eley, Book News and Rico Mossesgeld of Contract Worker.

I have new text interviews with Community Spark, as well as Josh Klein, in addition to a podcast interview with Startup Spark. I also participated in a private, live text based chat event with 30 plus assorted bloggers of the b5media blog network, providing advice on how to promote your blog via forums and how to create communities around your blog.

The book was mentioned on phpBB Guru, a Russian phpBB support community, Slashdot and ivanpino.COM. It was also mentioned by Lee LeFever of Common Craft and Jason Falls of Social Media Explorer and included in AMACOM’s Book Blast newsletter.

Finally, Alejandro Reyes of, mentioned in book in a short video on his Twitter and at the beginning of an episode of his Successfool.TV web show.

Thank you to everyone who has shown an interest in the book!
