  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shelli | 2/8/2014

    " I couldn't finish this book. I dreaded going to sleep each night because I *had* to read another chapter from this book before turning out the light. It's just not that interesting. Yeah, I get the point that you need to network to get ahead, but seriously, this guy is *way* too aggressive for my career choice. I don't really want to be CEO of my company, so I don't really feel the need to network with people for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. When do you get to have some time for yourself and your family? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 2/7/2014

    " Useful information for anyone looking to expand your circle of influence, for whatever reason - new career, new job, new social circle, etc. None of it is brain surgery, but can be just the thing some people need to get started down a new path. The author's style seemed a little obnoxious at times, but like all books of this genre, the best path is probably to treat it like a buffet: take what works for you, take a few chances and try a few new things that initially make you wince, and leave the rest behind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Xavier Shay | 2/4/2014

    " Fascinating mostly to see how Ferrazzi structures his life to always be connecting with people. Not a life I want, but still picked up some good advice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy | 1/14/2014

    " Business book about relationships and success. At times it almost came across as manipulative, though I don't think the author intended that. I think he really was sincere, but the reader needs to be careful to keep the proper intentions as well. Good ideas in the book, for both self-employed and corporate employed alike. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vaughn | 10/27/2013

    " Ferrazzi's thesis is that networking is important. But we already knew that. He then goes on to share a few nuggets of knowledge, which get watered down by the repetitive nature of his examples. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ash | 3/2/2013

    " If you don't take anything else from this book, take just this one piece of advice. When networking, instead of thinking what the person can do for you, turn it around and think what you can do for this person. Makes the connection much more genuine even without you trying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helene | 1/16/2013

    " Ferrazzi has a lot of good advice in this book, but after awhile it became redundant. Guess he wanted to beat home the point that making connections is well worth it. "
