LinkedIn Book – I'm on LinkedIn — Now What??? Second Edition (!!)

December 8th, 2008 | by Jason Alba |

Last week I heard that Amazon is now shipping the second edition of my LinkedIn book, I’m on LinkedIn Now What???, and just barely noticed (at 6:04am MST this morning) that the image on the LinkedIn book page now has the “second edition” image… HOW COOL)!  Happy About has been shipping the second edition a little before that… that’s always the best place to purchase from unless you get some extra-cool Amazon perks (free shipping, etc.).

Going through this second edition process was enough for me to think:

  • Oh my gosh! I have to do this every year???  That’s a lot of work (but I don’t like the idea of my work being outdated, so I know I will), and
  • If I ever write another book again, I’d like to write about something I can update once every three years… at the most :)

That’s okay though… it was a great experience and I do look forward to writing the third edition to see how far they progress between now and then.

To see what is new in the second edition, check out this blog post about what was on my mind when I was writing the first edition, and this blog post from the JibberJobber blog with some thoughts right after I submitted the final manuscript to the publisher.

Here’s something very, very cool:  If you purchased the first edition of my LinkedIn book, whether it was paperback or ebook, you can get the second edition ebook for free.  Complementary.  On us.  Here’s how it works:

If you purchased from Happy About, you should have (or will) get the ebook automatically (when you purchase from them you should have put your email address in the order form (I think)).

If you purchased from Amazon, simply let us know (use the JibberJobber Contact Us form) and we’ll get you a link where you can fill out a small, quick form on Happy About’s site and then get the ebook.

We expect to send out thousands of ebooks under this program, so please be patient (I don’t think they have ever done this before, and we’ll be taxing their internal systems :p). How many authors and publishers would offer something like this?  I don’t know, but I thought it was pretty cool!

Enjoy the second edition of this LinkedIn book, and if you have a few minutes leave a review on Amazon.com :)
