I am not someone who wants to spend too much time trying to figure out how to get the most utility from the yet unknown values of Social Networking. LinkedIn for Dummies made the start-up and key success factors simple to scan, do and look good. It took less time and was more clear than the other four books that I looked at before buying LinkedIn for Dummies. Worth the purchase price and the time.

LinkedIn for Dummies is diffinetly worth your time if you are interested in building a network of like minded people. It explains the neat little nuances and a few tricks you most likely would not even think of, and it walks you through the useful aspects of the many facets of LinkedIn. You can use this book as a guide and a great starting point to build your network for either professional or social resources. Networking is important in these times and LinkedIn for Dummies will make this effort easier that you would think.
