Format: Paperback
LinkedWorking has reinvigorated my passion for connecting with people to
the point that I found myself momentarily leaving the manuscript to visit
LinkedIn and try out a few new tips and locate new people to connect with.

Let's be clear that this is not a book for novice LinkedIn users. There are not screen shots and basic tutorials for newbies. The authors assume you get the basics of LinkedIn, but novice users can certainly extrapolate valuable networking skills from the book that will invariably work for anyone looking to become a better networker.

That's one thing I really appreciated about the book - it's ability to give you important networking tactics, how those tactics apply to LinkedIn, and then wash it down with a real life example from uber successful LinkedIn users. LinkedWorking does all of this without all the fluff and hype you're going to get from a lot of books on networking and connecting. It strips it down to the core of what is important, and included great suggestions such as ways to approach e-mailing busy people, and intelligent strategies to benchmark your success on LinkedIn.

If you really want to up the ante on your networking efforts and want to realize the power of LinkedIn as a tool to help you bolster these efforts, LinkedInWorking is a great place to start.

LinkedWorking describes an insider's view of how to maximize LinkedIn as a tool to connect and prosper personally and professionally. What I like most about it is:

- practical advice on how to build an effective network
- a specific plan designed to grow productive connections
- interviews with professionals who use LinkedIn to help them succeed

LinkedWorking is about creating value by building meaningful relationships and enriching experiences that go far beyond the web. LinkedIn is just the beginning.

I had found out about Lewis Howes from Jeff Bullas's blog who is a huge Social Media Blogger expert based in Australia. Jeff referenced Lewis Howes as an expert in LinkedIn network. I immediately clicked on a link [...] and began digesting information. After couple of hours my professional profile on LinkedIn network went from nowhere to number 1. That was something I could not believe my eyes.
I have ordered the book right away and was eager to learn the rest of the secrets from his book. This book is a must read for anyone who wants to bring their professional networking to a next level. LinkedWorking is full of real life examples of people who start with nothing and ended up with multimillion dollar businesses. And these real examples prove that Rome was not built in one day. People who achieved success using LinkedIn worked very hard to be where they are at. Anyone can get there step by step. Consistency is the key. I will implement every single advice that was given in this book.

PS: I had a privilege to meet Lewis Howes in person. He is super nice and down to earth guy. Lewis is a huge fan of Thai Cuisine.

I've read a lot of books about social networking topics and I've found that most of them are "here's how you sign up" type books and don't really tell you how to make money with it. LinkedWorking is different. This one tells you how to actually use LinkedIn for profit. Since getting this book, in less than 2 months I've gone from 300 LinkedIn connections to over 2000. My leads have increased significantly as well.

I really enjoyed this book. I like that I could put the tips and information to immediate use. I've been slowly building up my network in the past few days. I like the information about joining groups and answering questions.

Though the book is focused on LinkedIn, I think that the information is applicable to networking in general.

I also like that it was a quick read.

The only downside is a few typos in the book, but that does not get in the way of the message.

There are a lot of books out there that talk about using tools. LinkedWorking goes beyond the tool, and instead, walks the reader through networking and what it is, and how LinkedIn can add value to networking, and not replace it. Another differentiating factor of the book is the numerous success stories of others based on using LinkedIn. A must read if you plan to continue thriving in the digital age.

I was generally disappointed in this book. Very generic in giving assistance to improve LinkedIn Skills. The case studies were good but the book seemed like it was slapped together without any continuity. The book wasn't helpful at the level I expected.

Good Morning, Social Rabbit here with your guide to the world of social media.

Monday was so mental that it has slipped into Tuesday, so sorry about that readers. Today I am reviewing LinkedWorking: Generating Success on LinkedIn the Worlds Largest Professional Networking Website by Frank Agin and Lewis Howes.

This book is all about using LinkedIn effectively to produce results. Each chapter covers a different aspect of LinkedIn, it relates it to networking in real life and then gives an example of someone on LinkedIn who has had success with it. Below are some of my favourite bits from the book (these are all direct quotes):

* When you send an invitation you should always try to make it personal, or at least add some value to the message.... A personal touch always increased your chances of being accepted
* You never know which connections will come in handy in the future. This is why it is important to never pass judgement while on LinkedIn
* Everyone is a networking opportunity for you (and you are an opportunity for everyone). This is a powerful networking concept. As powerful as it is, however, there are limitations to it. The primary limitation is that you have no control over where this networking strategy leads. That is, you can never tell when you will come across a networking opportunity and when you do, you have little control as to what might be. You eliminate much of this limitation when you take it upon yourself to reconnect with people.
* This is the Golden Rule of Networking: Give first ... get second.
* Eventually what you inject into your network - opportunities, information, support, energy and additional contacts - comes back to you.
