Social Network Analysis for Startups – Finding connections on the social web   /Maksim Tsvetovat / Alexander Kouznetsov / O’Reilly Media / 2011-10-7

SNA techniques are derived from sociological and social-psychological theories and take into account the whole network (or, in case of very large networks such as Twitter — a large segment of the network). This book builds on these books’ foundations to teach a new, pragmatic, way of doing SNA. I would like to write a book that links theory (“why is this important?”, “how do various concepts interact?”, “how do I interpret quantitative results?”) and practice — gathering, analyzing and visualizing data using Python and other open-source tools.
