From School Library Journal
The Web 2.0 innovation LinkedIn (www.lindedin.com) has gained huge popularity as a professional networking tool and is often considered the key to success for businesspeople and job seekers today. In fact, all Fortune 500 companies are already part of this service. Butow (CEO, Butow Communications Group) and Taylor (cofounder, TalentPlanet) show how to use LinkedIn strategically to communicate and to gain competitive advantage. The 12 chapters supply detailed and practical instructions for functions such as registration, profile creation, and the management of contacts, leads, and recommendations. In addition, members are offered guidance about proper business etiquette and for using LinkedIn to its full potential, especially with regard to recruitment, job seeking, and business intelligence. Unfortunately, the many screenshots contained in the text are too small and, therefore, virtually unreadable. Nevertheless, this informative text is well written; because of its value to business and human resources professionals and to individuals developing their careers, it is recommended for all academic and public collections.—Caroline Geck, MLS, MBA, Somerset, NJ

Some information I can utilize straight away in my current position, some I will in the future and some may just lead to other avenues that will strengthen my recruiting and social networking en devours. A very useful read and I feel it could translate to many professionals looking to get more knowledge in today's Social Networking.
The context of the book is good, but the format is poor. I would skip this book and look for another. Very disappointed in this American Management Association publication.

Heavy users of LinkedIn will likely find this pabulum.
I did, at least ... Your mileage may vary....
