An advocate for personal branding and consummate believer in networking, I have been a LinkedIn® citizen since 2007. ([...]) I use LinkedIn to share, learn, and continue to foster relationships. Virtually, that is how I first met Richard Lowe.
Richard has published a wide and sweeping overview of LinkedIn that will prove invaluable to newbies, or to those who wish to revisit the "mechanics" and how-to's. Overlooking the few grammatical errors and misuse of words, this is a quick and easy read packed full of information. I look forward to the second edition when it is time to update "Focus on LinkedIn".
