Format: Paperback
Happy About Online Networking is a quick, smart and focused guide to building a network online. It is built on the basic fundamentals of networking (either face to face or online). I found it to be a one stop shop for how to do ALL networking right, and a much needed guide to using various online networking sites more efficiently, especially LinkedIn. I had no clue what to do with my first LinkedIn invitation. For me, after finishing the book I was able to immediately apply tips to identify which invitations to accept and decline & why, reach out to my network to get a business problem solved and connect with past colleagues.

The book is also excellent for anyone just getting started with online networking such as a recent college grad or someone launching a new business. I also think it would be extremely helpful for someone looking to retool/rebrand him or herself. For example, my husband has been with the same employer since he graduated college nearly 20 years ago. This book has all the resources for him under one cover to refresh what he learned about networking in college, as well as tips to help him seek out resources in a new industry and then highlight his new professional persona online.

I have worked with Liz in her past roles as a VP of HR and Exec Director of a large list-serve community. She draws on these and other elements of her rich and extensive background to stress the fundamentals of networking (especially with a focus on job hunting or building business contacts) and apply it towards accomplishing objectives online.

The environmment I worked in with Liz required saavy networking in an ever-changing environment to get things done.

Format: Paperback
If you're reading this review, you can learn from this book. If you're reading this review, it means that you're participating in the online world.

The question to ask yourself is, do you know the right way? Whether your a beginner or advanced networker, there are bits of information you will use from this book. Liz Ryan did a great job synthesizing the essence of online networking.

I consider myself an advanced online networker. I practice a lot of the techniques Liz espouses in her book, however, not all. In reading through her various top-10 techniques, inevitably, 20% of her tips were ones that I've either thought about and had not practiced or haven't realized I should be doing.

As a beginner networker, this book is filled with nuggets to be read, digested, and practiced.

Great job!

As an independent distributor for a gourmet candle home business, I was looking for information that I could use to build my business online. This is a great book to give you a starting point on where you should go, what you should do, and who you should network with on the web. I recommend this book for anyone just starting out with online networking and wanting to get their feet wet.

Format: Paperback
This is one book that is of the 'how to' genre but very accessible.

I finished it in one evening and every day find tips within that I use at work with corespondance. Looking forward to reading Liz's perspective on other topics, in the future?
