Book Recommendation: QR Codes Kill Kittens

I took my oldest son (Timothy) to a book signing in Brooklyn Friday night…and of course while we were killing time waiting for the event to begin we browsed the shelves for new and interesting books.

One of the ones I ended up picking up was a really quick read called QR Codes Kill Kittens.

It’s basically a picture book showing off a ton of examples of businesses doing really stupid things with QR codes and social media.  Essentially a guide book of what NOT to do.

It’s a really quick read, very entertaining (many laugh out loud moments), and lots of useful advice is actually packed into the small captions, opinions, and stories the author shares throughout.

If you’ve got 30 minutes and looking for a bit of ‘business entertainment’, I recommend you pick up a copy.
