I saw this on Paul Hummer's list and wanted to check it out. I enjoyed reading it, but it wasn't quite what I was looking for. It was very practical and hands-on, but pretty basic, if you're someone like me who deals with data regularly. I was wanting something more theoretical or analytical, I guess. If you've never worked with data or social networks before, this would be a good starting point.

Concise and well-written (like most O'Reilly stuff) book on basic social network analysis, complete with (Python, Unix-based) code and examples. You can ignore the code samples if you want to just read the book (I was able to replicate some of them using UCINet, a network analysis tool).

Liked it. Recommended.

Good introductory book on social network analysis. Nothing too complicated, currently using this stuff for a work project, found it helpful enough.

Truly amazing book. It introduces startups (= beginners) to the great world of social network analysis, a sub filed in a wider field called computational social science. The book inspired me with many ideas. Very recommended read.

Good introduction to graph theory in general, but nothing spectacular. Still a very good intro and some good Russian stories & jokes...
