Fresh from #SuperEpic” Mighty Rasing delivers another book about a subject he really really knows. Social media is going leaps and bounds. Then it got out of control (sort of). And what better way to sort it all out by reading “Get A Life…Online”.
This book packs lots of meat to enhance you digital life. It has everything for the novice to the hardcore netizen. Mighty not only wrote a book that is readable because its Taglish but grasp the Pinoy context of being online. He knows the Pinoy culture, ethics and behavior that affect how we use social media. He tackled topics like useful apps, how share your talent online, how to use social media for a good cause. The serious issue of privacy and cyber bullying were discussed. All of these topics and much more for a 75 pesos book!
I enjoyed reading because knows well the online culture of Pinoys or making much of social media but also he shared his personal experiences of being a netizen. For someone who’s been there as one of the popular new media practitioner, stories of failures and success is inspiring to people who wants their voice be heard.
This great book helps us understand and engage the online (and also offline) life for every Filipino. If you love “#SuperEpic” then you’ll love this one too. Embrace the digital explosion Pinoy style with “Get A Life…Online”.

Book Review: May Powers Ka To Be #SuperEpic by Mighty Rasing

Fresh from the Manila International Book Fair (MIBF) comes a book from a prolific blogger, Mighty Rasing. You may know him as host of the “Happy Yuppie Podcast” (that addresses young professionals) and Family Matters over DZAS. And as you listen or follow him over his social media outlets, you’ll find his wisdom practical and indispensable. So it’s high time for him to release a book.

“May Powers Ka To Be #SuperEpic” is quirky book that is a cross between the Harris brothers book “Do Hard Things”, a pinch of John Maxwell, biblical principles, pop culture and some geekiness blended in Taglish (Tagalog-English) language. In the midst of it all, it has a vision and a heart of a youth worker that sees Pinoy youth’s that can make an impact to the society.

Reading this book, you’ll it will equip you to know and use your hidden “powers”. Every chapter has this reference over Marvel/DC superheroes (which made the fanboy in me happy). By doing this, Mighty’s book is not just another ‘How-to” book but an accessible and entertaining read. The principles he gave in this book really sticks to the mind and heart of his young and not so young (like me) readers.

“May Powers Ka To Be #SuperEpic” is a great book that is a must read for every Christian youth. I’ve already shared this book to my young people and I got a lot of positive feedbacks. Get this book if you want to have powers to make a mark in this society.
