This book was a good discussion about how other people (your network) can affect you, and vice versa. There were many real world examples and discussions of studies presented in a way that was very easy for a lay person to understand.
I enjoyed the main author's narration. It sounded more conversational because he knew what he was reading. Sometimes a third-party narrator sounds too robotic.

Would have been much better if the author had not read his own book. Author read books seldom work (unless you are Malcolm Gladwell) - reading for audio is as much of an art as writing the book. The book? I recommend Connected even though it is not a great book. The essential truth of the power of networks, and the science done by the authors to tease out their salience, are both sound and ground-breaking. Methodologically strong and epistemologically important. We need to think about our worlds from the perspective of networks. Connected proves that not every good academic can write a popular book based on their work. Can't blame them for trying. Advice...buy in paper....skim through...and share the ideas.
