Guy Kawasaki says in the Foreword:
If PR people don't embrace social media, they will be left in the dust. The concept of sucking up to a few major publications and offering exclusives to the one that promises the most coverage is a risky concept. 

For one thing, the major publications no longer "make" products and services; they often report on products and services that have been made. Trickle down is waning. Bubble up is the new game.

Thus, PR and social media are completely different. Where PR is about getting journalists to tell people to buy your product. Social media is about providing value. The goals, rules, and best-practices are not the same.

Or should they be? It's a brave new world and Social PR Secrets lights the match where most burn out.
