Book Giveaway: Humanize!

What better way to kick off the holiday season than with a giveaway? And not just any giveaway--an awesome one.

My friends Maddie Grant and Jamie Notter recently published Humanize: How People-Centric Organizations Succeed in a Social World. I was fortunate enough to review a few chapters while it was still being written and was totally bowled over by how smart and awesome it is. And seriously--I'm not just saying that because they're friends; this book goes well beyond the now run-of-the-mill social media book. Humanize addresses the deep organizational changes that companies need to make to become more human not only to succeed in social media but to succeed in business. The book is chock-full of ideas about why and how organizations can become more human....and it doesn't just stop at ideas. It includes detailed action plans--including dowloadable worksheets--you can use to explore where your organization is now and where it could be in terms of being more human, and concrete steps on how to get there.

Seriously--don't just take my word for it--check out the reviews. Or, better yet, read it for yourself when you WIN A FREE COPY! ; )

Here's all you have to do. Leave a comment with your name and either Twitter handle or email address so I can contact you if you win. That's all. I will pick a winner Tuesday evening, December 6 at approximately 9 pm. Why then? Because Wednesday, I'll be at the ASAE Technology Conference & Expo, as will be Jamie and Maddie, so if the winner happens to be there too I can bring the book, thereby not only saving myself from having to mail it BUT giving you the opportunity to get it autographed by the authors. And if you're not there, well, I could get it autographed anyway before I send it.

Don't want to wait? You can buy it on Kindle or Nook today (not affiliate links or anything--you know I am too lazy for that).

Thanks and good luck!

Update: And the winner is...
