Reasoning about a Highly Connected World" and thought the group might appreciate. I was introduced to the book via a coursera class on social network analysis, last year. While dated by digital lifecycle standards (2010), it's an excellent baseline. I should also note that some of the modeling presented in the book is a bit off, especially when you apply new open source algorithms not available to the authors at the time of the book's publication (eg r:statistical). Should you choose to dig in, please let me know as I'd love to discuss application of the concepts.
