Great book, too much focus on Twitter...

Any additional comments?

I found this book quite helpful however from about midpoint on, it just seemed to be all about Twitter. Nothing wrong with that but there's more to the world than Twitter.

My brain hurts - but in a good way.

Not only has this book stretched me to consider my personal platform in a new way and resourced me with tools, tips and methods to action a whole lot of things that I'd been previously been to overwhelmed to attempt but it has introduced me to Michael Hyatt himself. His brand is brilliant! His resource chest is deep and he is generous in his openhanded sharing from it.
Could not recommend it more highly to anyone who writes, says or makes anything (ever) but particularly to those looking to take next steps in turning a "sense" of purpose or possibility into something more tangible and achievable.
