Simply just average. Don't expect too much here,

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book is just a big collection of tips on making friends. There was nothing I could call groundbreaking, not even innovative for that matter.

The author seems to be someone who read how to make friends and influence people and decided to make it shorter and more "wired". The last third of the book is all about how to become part of an online community.
