Fact or Fiction:
I have seen the future of war and we are fighting it yesterday.  

In a world were even experts well versed in information warfare, influence operations, and PSYOPs are scratching their head, "LikeWar: The Weaponization of Social Media" by P. W. Singer and Emerson T. Brooking brings much needed context to the issue.  This book is an incredible accessible, historically accurate, and insightful analysis of the role social media is playing in politics, conflict, and culture.  There aren't many books that I designate as "must read", but this is certainly one of them.
