You have close friends and acquaintances. Your close friends and acquaintances jamew have friends and acquaintances, that may or may not over lap with yours.

Connected: The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks

Those people also have another set of friends and acquaintances. And here’s a.chdistakis kicker, that third layer, not your friend, or your friend’s friend, but your friends friends friend can affect your daily mood, the amount of exercise you hicholas, whether or not you smoke, your involvement in crime, all sorts of things. The book sets out to prove it.

Along the way you also learn about things like why you probably only have somewhere between close friends.

How these are to a degree biological factors hardwired into you. Most interesting of all is how the ripples just fade away at the third layer, over and over again throughout their studies and their testing. The book was just filled with highly interesting facts about how your network influences you. Also, how you can influence your network. It also matters the type of network that you have. Are you connected to lots of people that aren’t connected to each other, weak ties, or are you connected to lots of people that are all connected to one another, strong ties.


Each of these types of networks influences you differently. Your behavior within a network is probably following one of three paths; cooperator, you’re willing to help others, free rider, you’re letting others do the heavy lifting, enforcer, you’re making sure everyone follows the rules. Your behavior is also likely to shift between those roles depending on who you’re interacting with and when. In short, a fascinating book.

I do have a nit to pick with it though. At the end of it all, I have a great set of information about what a strong network would look like. I get a good sense of why I would want to have a strong network.

Nothing about how to really get a strong network other than making sure my friends are connected with my friends and that my friends, and as much as possible their friends and their friends, are all on a positive path. I’m sure that’s easy to work out. Guidance around this network thing would have been nice. I found this book quite interesting. It was not easy to read but interesting enough to keep me engaged. The numerous illustrations very helpful in understanding the points being made in the book about the impact of relationships being interconnected and the impact that this has on our lives and decisions.

Also, the point made by the authors about the impact others have on us and the impact we have on others was intriguing, especially that “You do not have to be a superstar to have this power. All you need to do is connect” p. Our connections can thus either help promote or degrade the common good.

How important it is to know that we can make the world better through our connections with others promoting things of value such as truth, beauty, and justice those traits upheld by the Greeks. There is value in building community. This is a very considerable piece of work and it’s has deep implications for understanding human behaviors.

This book is pretty dense and well organized. The authors build up the definition of what a network is and our role in a network. The importance of networks. The implication of technology. Finally they walk us through several examples. There’s a lot to learn here. Its not one of those lighy easy going business books.

As long as you’re prepared for that you’ll get a lot out of this. I was looking for more on the impact of Facebook and the implications of SnapChat. What this book did cover about pre-Facebook era and the rise of Facebook was insightful. I read this book when it was first published in but am only now getting around to re-reading and then reviewing it. Since then, the nature and extent of social media have expanded and extended far beyond anything that Tim Berners-Lee could have imagined twenty years ago when he developed his concept of the worldwide “web” of electronic connection and interaction while working as an independent contractor the for European Organization for Nuclear Research CERN.

Presumably Nicholas Christakis and James Fowler, co-authors of Connected, are amazed by the growth of networks of various kinds since they published their book. As they observe in the Preface, “Scientists, philosophers, and others who study society have generally divided into two camps: This book is the result of what Christakis and Fowler have learned thus far from their research and I think they make a substantial contribution to a discussion of a question that has continued for several thousand years: These are among the dozens of business subjects and issues of special interest and value to me, also listed to indicate the scope of Christakis and Fowler’s coverage.

I eagerly await breakthrough insights in months and years to come that increase our understanding of metacognition even more. During a conversation near the conclusion of the book in the Reading group Guide, Nicholas Christakis and James Fowler are asked this question: Is there anything exciting coming to light? Why do we help each other so much compared to other species? What is the reason for the spark in love at first sight?
