    Good read! I found this book to be very well composed, an easy read, easy to understand and very insightful. If you want to improve anything on your profile, you will appreciated the step-by-step instructions for changing certain parts of the profile. But I would also highly recommend another book I think would be even better A must read!!!

  2. Essay Expert Extraordinair! Brenda Bernstein and The Essay Expert are, simply stated, hands-down, the most thoroughly knowledgeable, accurately articulated, and professionally executed service of it’s kind. The e-book, “How To Write A Killer Linkedin Profile…And 18 Mistakes To Avoid,” gives you the resources to accomplish exactly what it advertises, and is a direct and concise reflection of the experiential knowledge base that the author possesses. You are getting exactly what you’d expect, only more so. I couldn’t recommend it more.

  3. surprising mix of efficiency and depth I only budgeted a brief time to reading the book so far, but managed to transform my LinkedIn profile. I’m usually a skeptic about these kinds of books and hope other social media guides will copy the style here:1) The book gets you exactly where you need to go as far as LinkedIn as a website, so you don’t waste time looking for buttons if you’re not spending your life at LinkedIn.2) But then the advice comes in short, sharp but highly intelligent pieces, relevant to exactly where you are. She really knows what she’s talking about, and puts the right piece of advice on the right page.Not many authors smart enough to be subtle also do the work to be organized enough to match each edit button on a website. Where another book you might read a chapter of general advice and then stumble around trying to figure out what it means for you, here I’d read a paragraph and make a useful change, then repeat, all very quickly.
