    Good book although somewhat dated

    The writers openly admit books covering internet tools change quickly and tips/hints die or irrevocably altered. Such is the case here. In fact, the book should have LinkedIn in BIG, BOLD letters with the others being small and little - it would mirror the content in this book. Over half the book is LinkedIn and the remaining half divided unevenly between the remaining three. And the Google+ section, when this was written, could be summarized as "The newest member with great potential because Google is giant. So no real hints how to use it but we think it will surpass all others in potential." Facebook and Twitter sections are certainly better but far less potent than the LinkedIn parts.
