I hate to give a bad review about anything, but this book is not worth the cash. Luckily I was given a gift card, but if you're interested, check it out of the library.The problem with so many computer books is that by the time they come out the program's been updated. This book came out last year, and facebook looks quite different, just a few months later. As a Fb rookie but computer nerd, I could translate from the old to the new, but a computer rookie would be totally lost.So, don't buy it. There were a few tidbits and explanations of a few things that helped, but not that many. At least it counts against my woefully low book total for this year. ( )

If you are new to Facebook, this is a good book for you. Being a more experienced user, I found the chapters about using Facebook for business to be more interesting. A good reference guide! ( )
