Let's face it: you're a little behind the times.

Maybe you've sent a text, Tweet or Facebook -- or at least know what that means -- but you just haven't mastered it yet.

And that's why you should check out the new book, Read Between the Lines: A Humorous Guide to Texting with Simplicity and Style.

The book dissects the condensed language of 2010 and beyond in simple terms, some of which will have you ROFL. A helpful SMS acronym translator is included, and an iPhone application gives you quick access to all the 411 you need to be considered happening in a world of CUL8R’s and ROTFL’s.

The reviews are in and many readers, such as Silicon Valley CEO Peter H. Jackson, have echoed such sentiments.

The book "will fast-forward your ability to communicate in the new world," Jackson said. "I thought I was an early pioneer in texting. By reading I learned more in thirty minutes than I had in five years of finger typing. More importantly, I learned how to look cool to my children. You need to get to the point, be clever, and figure out how to take advantage of the limited space (characters) provided by services like Twitter. The new world is here and you better get hip or get deleted.”
