    If you have ever flown in an airplane, used electricity from a nuclear power plant or taken an antibiotic, you have benefited from a brilliant mistake. Each of these life-changing innovations was the result of many missteps and an occasional brilliant insight that turned a mistake into a surprising portal of discovery. There are countless books that tell you how to avoid mistakes. Paul Schoemaker, founder and executive chairman of Decision Strategies international and research director of Wharton’s Mack Center for technological innovation, shares critical insights on the benefits of making well-chosen mistakes. Based on solid research and insights from more than 100 organizations, he provides a roadmap for using mistakes to accelerate learning for your organization and yourself. This book is a great read. If you’re doing social media and you’re trying to be perfect, get over it – you won’t learn how to improve what you’re doing. This book will help. www.amazon.com/gp...

    Measure What Matters I've had the pleasure of writing a book with KD Paine on measurement over the past year - where we merged two concepts - the Networked Nonprofit and Measurement. So, I've read this book cover-to-cover many times. It's a cookbook of measurement techniques for social media filled with helpful case studies, step-by-steps, and great advice.
