"If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original."

I was introduced to this book by David Meerman Scott and the cover and title alone caught my attention almost immediately.

From what I've gathered in reading DMS's post on LinkedIn as well as the brief research I did on the title, it seems to go much further than what the platform is looking to do. Instead, it's from the accounts of members of the Facebook team on how the company stays ahead of governments, politicians, and businesses to go much further than just a social media platform.

I highly recommend you check out his original post on the book on LinkedIn from David: An Ugly Truth digs deep into the insider details behind the algorithm and other aspects of Facebook.

My favorite line from the post: 

"While I am just getting started (the book released yesterday), it is superbly written. To me, An Ugly Truth reads more like a thriller than nonfiction."

Would love to hear what others have to say and if you pick it up, what your thoughts are of the book later on!
