Format: Hardcover
Anyone who cares about democracy and the way we get information in the world today needs to read "Do the Right Things" by Hoggan and Littlemore. They clearly describe how public relations should be used (to "do the right thing"), how we can figure out what the "right" thing is, and how the principles of public relations have been misused to persuade the public that the global climate crisis is not real.

I've assigned "Do the Right Thing" as a textbook in my university public relations course. It's an easy -- yet dramatic -- read. My students enjoy the book and find the stories compelling. I've also read Hoggan and Littlemore's book "Climate Cover-Up: The Crusade to Deny Global Warming," which is a more-detailed approach to the same subject.

Reading this book will help you better understand how it is that the vast majority of climate scientists believe there is a greater than 90 percent chance that the earth is warming and that human behavior is responsible -- while most Americans do not. Why the disconnect? This book will help you connect the dots.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a great how-to guide explaining basic strategy, background, and the big ideas of PR. It includes tips for things like how to organize a news conference and how to use social media. I would reccomend it to anyone who is studying communications or PR (or interested in entering the field), running a business, or simply people who want to communicate well.

HASH(0x9b92b888) out of 5 stars Well worth the read for those who want to be wise to a wise society Sept. 13 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
Damage control, creative lying, spin - Public Relations has become a more and more tainted concept. "Do the Right Thing: PR Tips for a Skeptical Public" is a guide for public relations professionals who want to improve their own and their company's image in the face of a public which has been led through the motions so many times that they won't give most PR professionals the time of day anymore. "Do the Right Thing" is well worth the read for those who want to be wise to a wise society.
