As we approach the 90-day point from its publication, I am so happy my book is being reviewed so favorably by consultants, entrepreneurs, coaches, attorneys and mentors.
Yes, of course, I carefully chose the reviewers to give a wide-angle view of how the book can help so many people in all walks of life, not just attorneys, though it is published by the American Bar Association. Each is an author and well-recognized for their expertise. I am privileged to count them as peers.

Marc carefully explains each section of LinkedIn and discusses how to best approach and maximize one’s time and energy.

“Having written several career books for lawyers and legal professionals over the years, I know many of the rules business people take for granted have to be rethought when applied to members of our profession. That’s especially true of LinkedIn and other social media venues. There are a lot of things nonlawyers can do to market and promote themselves online that could get us sued, sanctioned or disbarred if we attempted them. In this book Marc Halpert has done an amazing job of helping lawyers understand not only what social media can do for them, but how to use these tools in an effective, professional and ethical manner. If you are a lawyer or legal professional, read this before you read anything else about LinkedIn and social media marketing.” — Cliff Ennico, attorney and author of Partner Track, The Legal Job Interview, and The Crowdfunding Handbook
“LinkedIn is a hugely powerful, global network of business professionals. When used properly, it can propel your career and your business in ways most people can’t fathom. Marc’s new book, is quintessential Marc: succinct, easy to understand with the specific techniques you will learn framed underneath the big ideas you need to understand first. While “LinkedInTM Marketing Techniques for Law and Professional Practices” has specific and highly useful tips and techniques, it can provide excellent value for anyone who wants to use LinkedIn to build their business and enhance their career. Marc Halpert, can and does. He has built a thriving business that helps business professionals and companies used LinkedIn to find jobs they would have never found, attract new clients, source top talent, promote new ideas and products, and much more.” — Mark Monchek, Chief Opportunity Officer, Opportunity Lab, and author of Culture of Opportunity: How to Grow Your Business in an Age of Disruption
