Format: Hardcover
Ferrazzi's discussion of establishing a lifestyle of connecting with others is the benchmark by which other discussions of networking should be measured. Too many people think of networking has something you do frantically when you discover that you are out of work and are admonished to pursue the "hidden job market". As Ferrazzi explains, the time to connect is long before you recognize a specific need. In the future loyalties will be to social networks and not to employers.

The author's credibility in writing on the subject is very high as he draws extensively from personal experience in illustrating his principles. Initially I was a little uncertain as to the relevance for me of some of his experiences such as hosting dinner parties with well-known public figures. However, as I reread the book a second and third time over the last few months, I can see that he is a mentor on my bookshelf that I will continue to revisit as I expand my connecting skills and the personal relevance of these stories and guidelines increases.

This is a valuable resource not only for those who would like to leave their current comfort zone to expand networking capabilities. It also provides helpful advice on personal branding and increasing visibility. I very highly recommend it.

I don't normally read networking books fully - found most of them boring by the second chapter. Hard to put this one down. Super practical and full of real life stories of wins and fails by Ferrazzi. Excellent.

Format: Hardcover
Never Eat Alone is a rare, detailed glimpse into how those with no special access can connect to those they want to meet. For many people who are good at connecting, this activity becomes a way of life. It's a profession and a hobby. As such, connecting can become all consuming. Many will find that aspect of Mr. Ferrazzi's story to be unattractive. But I found his candor in this regard to be refreshing.

If you step back from his enthusiasm for connecting, the mental attitudes and processes he describes are just what everyone needs to use who wants to be better connected and accomplish more.

All of us know more than any one of us. If you take two equally talented young people in any field, the one who is better at connecting will live a more successful life than one who tries to go at everything as a lone ranger.

I have known dozens of master connectors. They all do some variation of what Mr. Ferrazzi describes in this book. Here is how I would distill those lessons:

1. Decide who you want to meet to further your objective of accomplishing more.

2. Learn more about the person.

3. Find what you can do to help that person in an area where they care.

4. Develop a strategy to meet briefly face to face.

5. Share what you want to do to help when you meet.

6. Stay in touch with more ways to help.

7. Attend events where other master connectors attend and link into fields which are not naturally yours by becoming acquainted with these master connectors.

8. Study those who are very good at this.

If you keep in mind the sheer pleasure of making a difference as you do this, you'll soon be a superb connector.
