What are your PR “must reads?”


As PR pros, we all do our fair share of reading. Me? I read the Wall Street Journal, CNN, and various local publications. Esquire and Golf Digest. And, of course, I read my fair share of PR and social media blogs. Where I fall short–at least lately–has been my book reading. You know, those hard-covered repositories of information and insights? 

Sure, I read some non-fiction and an occasional Vince Flynn novel, but what are today’s “must reads” for PR pros? Instead of sharing what I think you should read, I enlisted the help of my trusted PR colleagues. Here’s what they had to say (interesting to note that very few of these suggestions were actually traditional “PR” books).
