Here are some books that I have found particularly interesting, useful or in some other way
deserving of comment.
Crisis Proofing, by Tony Jaques

on crisis preparedness and response by an issues and crisis management expert

the inner workings of Buzzfeed, Business Insider, Gawker and other blogs, and their
influence on the mainstream media
Exposure, by Michael Woodford
