Are reciprocal links exchanges likely to penalize me ? Not so good ?

Google have said that reciprocal links could ‘meet’ naturally on the web.

We can imagine that Google is capable of detecting an artificial network of links and devalue the value of these links.

However, lots of websites have set up exchanges of links like type A->B/B->A and seem to obtain good results.
