Very little actual content
on October 25, 2010
This book has about 160 pages. Doesn't sound too bad. But first of all, the pages are small. Secondly, there are on average 10 lines per page, often less. Thirdly, many pages are blank or filled with unimportant screen shots. Taken together, the 160 pages would have filled at most 20 pages of a regular book.
For the content - this book focuses more on how to use websites than focus on the actual process of managing and securing your online reputation. The few tips given in this book are easily available online or through other, much better books. I flipped through this book in less than a half-hour and the only piece of information that was helpful was the list of websites where I can "claim" my online identity.
I cannot recommend this book for people who really want to learn something more in-depth about online reputation. If you have no clue whatsoever, this book might be a start but nothing more. As I said above, a big portion of the book is simply how to register with and use specific websites. I am glad I got a good deal on the book because it is not worth more than $5... A good ebook perhaps.
