My recommended must-reads

Now the dust has settled and I’ve finished writing my dissertation, I finally have time to properly read the books I have dipped in and out of over the past few months.

Thank you to everyone who recommended I read certain books to help broaden my understanding. I’ve been asked by a couple of people to share the books I have found useful relating to internal comms and social media. So I thought I’d create a list on Amazon which can be viewed here.

Some of the most interesting information and case studies I found on how organisations are using social media came  from Melcrum reports and also people sharing their experiences through Twitter.

Which books do you find helpful to read around social media and internal comms? Do you have a top tip for a fantastic find? Let me know what you think of my Amazon list of must-reads and if there’s anything you recommend the comms community should check out.
