There are a few interesting concepts in the book, I really was under the impression that you have to be an extroverted salesperson to really network, which is debunked in the book. It sounds like you should treat networking for a job similarly to day to day interactions with people when you are seeking the answer to a question or help with something. Sounds rather low key actually. I don't know how true it is, or if it's something that's common sense, but it was a confidence builder since I'm one of those types that is rather introverted and hates to network. However, I haven't tested out this concept yet.
I think what really got me was at the end of every chapter is his "journal" which attempt to portray real life examples of what he's discussing in the chapter. They are so painfully trite that I was cringing. The sample conversations for networking are also pretty bad.
He also does a fair amount of promoing his first book, which I found off-putting.
This book could have been helpful if it wasn't so drawn out, had better real life examples, and didn't hype his first book so much.
If you're curious about reading or skimming over the book I recommend you borrow it from a friend, or the local public library. I'm so put off by the author's writing that I couldn't pay for it.
