As far as networking goes and making your contacts count I have yet to find a book better than "Make Your Contacts Count (ISBN: 0814474020). But the instant book being reviewed touches on the material that book covers and includes some information about online networking, too. Two other books that cover online networking that have received some praise are: "Happy About Online Networking" (ISBN: 1600050158), and "The Savvy Gal's Guide to Online Networking).
As I read "Smart Networking" I couldn't help but be reminded of another book I read a couple of years ago: "Get Slightly Famous" (ISBN: 0972002170). I think if you are serious about networking and becoming skilled at it, then the book being reviewed and all the books I mention in this review would be wonderful reading. Read one book on a subject and you may get something out of it. But read three or more books on a subject and you can consider yourself an expert.
I don't know that I would recommend the instant book being reviewed as a stand-alone tome on its subject matter. But it is a good book. And a worthwhile read. 4 stars!
