The book is a useful tool for anyone who is not comfortable with the reasons to try social networking and maintaining several email accounts.
I never thought I'd say this about a non-fiction book, but there's a deeper theme within its pages: the importance of networking is more important than ever! The book's thoroughness goes beyond social networking methods; showing the necessity of maintaining technological literacy. Whether you need to update your "cyber saviness," or have only just realized its importance, this book is required reading. The good news? Mr. Palmer and Mr. Raffensperger have made "Overcoming the Digital Divide" a fast, understandable, and light read. I find myself returning to it again and again, not only to remind me of the virtues of technology, but also to inspire and motivate me professionally! If you're stagnate in your career, be it in job hunting, or keeping pace with the times, read this book!
The book is an easy, fast and enjoyable read that is written with subtle humor. I have been recommending the book to all of my speaker friends, including the "social media experts" who will learn a bunch about their own topic that they didn't know. If you have been avoiding the shift in social interaction that is inevitable, this book will bring you up to speed and allow you to stay competitive. My only complaint is that Palmer didn't write the book three years ago so that I could have established the digital traction that I have now.
By the way, Palmer's television show on Fox, "Shelly Palmer Digital Living" rocks!
