Reviews

A sound, well-written, and authoritative guide on how to do (and interpret) personal network research. The book nicely links personal network analysis to broader methodological approaches. I really like the boxed research case examples. I recommend this book and will use it both in teaching and professionally. --Barry Wellman, PhD, Director, NetLab Network, Toronto, Canada
