150-WORD BOOK REVIEW: Reputation Economics by Joshua Klein

reputation_economicsSometimes there are times when reading a business book is a good thing, other times when a novel is a more palatable option.

I read Klein’s book when I was at a business conference and really could have done with a novel, but even under those circumstances, I thought this book was a marvellous summation of today’s over-digitised times.

Klein knows his shit, knows his companies and understands that personal networks are the new currency. While I don’t believe that Klout ratings ever consistently help with upgrades and the like, there is enough knowledge here to make this a book to ‘bookmark’.

Probably not best read at a conference or late at night, but perfect for that commuting buffer between work and home.

REVIEW: 8/10
