WEINER BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT
Mark Weiner, former chair of the Commission on PR Measurement & Evaluation, has authored a new book entitled Unleashing the Power of PR: A Contrarian's Guide to Marketing and Communication. "One of the great myths in the field of public relations is that PR, driven as it is by relationships and creativity, is impossible to measure," says Weiner. "To the contrary, public relations in today's business environment is as much science as it is art. This book demonstrates and documents how public relations can be used as a low-cost, high-value alternative for achieving meaningful business outcomes."
Congratulations on the book Mark – I look forward to reading it. -DB
