(CLOSED) Connected Book Giveaway

Do you ever wonder how we are all Connected to each other? I have found a great book that will. Written by two gentleman with PhD's that did a lot of research to find out why and how our social networks can shape our lives.

Is our social network the reason we picked our current spouse or partner. Can your friends friend determine your happiness? According to Connected this can be factors of your life. Not only can people affect your life but so can others emotions. Remember the old saying you smile and the whole world smiles along with you. Well it may just be very true! How about this saying our parents would say "This hurts me more than it hurts you". Oh yeah so remember that one, maybe they had it kind of right?

Along with or one on one friends the book also talks about being political and hyperconnected. The hyperconnected one really intrigued me especially with social networking being so big these days (case in point my blog). I think my favorite part was the "From Six Degrees to Facebook".

A very interesting book of course with lot's of facts and research but still interesting. You may not "buy into" everything it says but some of it does make a lot of sense. At least it's something that makes you think and evaluate your world. I love books that make me think and ponder it's like a the book gives you homework.
