I'm figuring you already read Guy Kawasaki's new book What the Plus, Google+ for the Rest of Us, but if you've been too busy to grab a copy, check it out here on Libboo.

Also thanks Guy for the mention in your interview in Social Media Examiner. We had a great time seeing you (and hearing you speak) at SXSW!  

Here's a little bit of the interview to get you interested.

Mike: Have you self-published this book?
Guy: I did, working with the folks at Libboo, mostly Halley Suitt Tucker, and an independent consultant named Shawn Welch.
I self-published because I wanted to hit a low price point—”less than a Starbucks grande latte” to be exact—and I wanted total flexibility to do any kind of licensing, sponsoring and whatever-strikes-my-fancy deals.
For example, Samsung is sponsoring 6,000 copies. Can you imagine trying to get that through a traditional publisher? Tim Cook (current Apple CEO) will retire before that will happen.
