Work Smarter with LinkedIn is all about building professional relationships that will help you succeed in your current job or set you up with new opportunities. The book does not cover all the features of the website, but rather advises someone just starting out how to develop first level connections into real-world introductions and business.

I do not necessarily agree with this book's advice that every connection you make on LinkedIn must pass the "favor" test, that is every connection you make you should be willing to do a favor for. LinkedIn is a fantastic tool, and in many cases the more connections you have, regardless of their quality, the better. There is power in being an Open Networker and there is a reason so many LinkedIn users describe themselves as such. Though I do agree with the author that the more quality relationships you can develop, the more useful a LinkedIn profile becomes.

But overall this is a great introductory primer to LinkedIn. I would recommend this to anyone first starting out on the website.

It provided me with the basics I needed but I still don't understand the maximum usage of Linked]in. I'm rereading it to gain more knowledge and understanding of how to maximize usage of Linkedin.

Many people in my profession have LinkedIn profiles, but very few of us know why we have them, or how we can use LinkedIn to help us get more meaningful work. Creating a LinkedIn profile just feels like "something we should do". Alexandra Samuel's witty and readable "Work Smarter With LinkedIn" gave me many great ideas about how to use LinkedIn to build (and be selective about building) a network and how to target and go after the jobs I want.

This short ebook is not much longer than an extended weekend newsmagazine article. It was OK, but nothing special as far as I could tell. LinkedIn is basically an online database program that people can join and post their resumes, connect their resumes to oneanother, and maybe even develop some sort of networking relationship. It is also a place where members can showcase their skills and abilities through the "groups function" of the site.

LinkedIn has been around for a while. And there have been several books written about the site. So when a new book comes out on LinkedIn I read it not so much for good structure, good grammar, and reasonable content. Instead, I read it to see if there is something new between its covers on the subject. Unfortunately for the instant book being reviewed the underlying premise of the book is too simple, and there really was nothing new offered. I did not need to read this book to be reminded that the principle of "Garbage-in translates into Garbage-out" when it comes to building a database of networking contacts.

The outline of the booklet is simple: (1) Introduction, (2) Be picky or selective when allowing connections to your resume, (3) Be clear, diplomatic [polite] when dealing with your connections, (4) Be effective with your network, i.e., don't waste it or forget you have it to be used, and (5) Conclusion. Doesn't this sound like common sense? Duh? Well, it does to me. 3 stars!
