  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brad | 11/24/2013

    " This book could have been half as long as it really was. The idea of networking is great but it cannot be taught. It is good to hear stories and see examples but you are your only teacher. If people don't like you then it is pretty hard to apply anything this book shows. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Troy Kuhn | 8/24/2009

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 2/5/2006

    " Easy read with lots of great insights. Takes the whole networking concept and puts a more altruistic spin on it re: what you can do for others, not what they can do for you. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mikedariano | 7/14/2005
