More About the Author

I am the author of eight non-fiction books about both business and women's health, one novel and one short story. I've also edited one anthology of winning entries to the Hysteria 2012 Writing Competition. I'm also a social entrepreneur and the Founder and CEO of one of the most influential websites for women having a hysterectomy. The Hysterectomy Association has been online since 1996 and morphed into itself in 1997. Over the years it has supported millions of women by providing them with impartial and timely information, as well as giving them access to a support network that spans the globe.

My day job as a social media strategist means I try to remove the mystique and fear from social media for the clients and businesses I work with. The biggest bulk of my work is in delivering the Social Media Professional Development training programme I've created, a job that regularly causes me to re-evaluate what I know and thinks about the way the Internet works.

If you'd like to meet me, you can often find me lurking at conferences, seminars and presentations either on or off the stage.

I live in rural West Dorset with my partner Steve and have no kids, dogs or cats and have no plans to acquire any either.

The book is easy to read and will give you a good understanding of how Linkedin works and how to make good use of it. I would not regard it as being excellent value for money though because you would expect a lot more content for a £14.99 book.

Although I had a LinkedIn profile prior to purchasing this book, I found this book extremely insightful with its handy tips to build and strengthen your profile. With the increasing use of social media, this book is a step by step guide to help get the best out of LinkedIn both from a personal and professional standpoint.

The perfect book for anyone wishing to use Linkedin properly. Lots of tips on how to build the most effective profile, and also what NOT to do (which actually turns out to be quite important in some instances!). I have recommended this book to friends who I know are on Linkedin but not using it effectively.

I don't know about you but I have been 'on' LinkedIn since just after it started. Everyone I knew in business was busy loading up their CV and like them I did nothing with this fantastic networking tool. I kept meaning to update my profile, answer questions and start discussions and again like so many others my main problem was knowing where to start. The great thing about this book is that it really does make LinkedIn EASY. I was able to follow what is in effect a workbook, which takes you through each step, explaining the relevance and importance of each thing you need to do to get to a really useful LinkedIn profile. The screenshots and examples make everything easy to find and gave me the confidence that I was doing it correctly.

So, you have a complete profile and now what? Well this is where I think the author demonstrates that she actually uses LinkedIn rather than just knows a lot about it! At the back of the book are a series of 'recipes', formulae for everything from building a business to finding a job. Each one guides the reader on how to best make use of LinkedIn's formidable reach.

This book is a great investment for anyone who wants to make LinkedIn really work for them and I strongly recommend it.

I was looking for a well structured enriched user manual for LinkedIn, but this is not the one. The few screen snapshots are unreadable on a Kindle.

The book is easy to read and understand, and very useful to a LinkedIn novice. Even for the more experienced user there are still a few gems to be discovered. After all, there is a difference between knowing a programme or social medium and getting the most out of it. The book is also a useful reference to check now and then to make sure you have not forgotten a 'trick'.

Reading this book I was kind of pleased to see that I already knew most of it. However, the book did bring some useful tips and 'tools' to my attention that came in useful during my jobhunt - to get the most out of my network (1st and 2nd degree connections) and the companies I was interested in.

Being the medium that it is, LinkedIn is likely to change and modify itself over time, and therefore the book will need an updated edition or addendum. But then, this is valid for any book regarding a fast changing medium or tool (e.g. internet or computer software). Most of the principles and functions are likely still to be found in newer (layout) versions of LinkedIn.

I'm fairly experienced with linkedin, but there were a lot small details in the book that I had'nt used on linkedin.. Linkedin is easy enough to just log in and get going, but the strength of the book is how it takes all the dispirate elements of linkedin and structures them into a sequence of insights and to do's. It's worth buying even for relatively advanced users.
