    Overall

    I have to say, I purchased this book, The Art of Mingling (from Audible) with a bit of skepticism. The reviews were mixed, and the one even sited that the techniques were "fake" or "simplistic", but I decided to give it a fair shake because there were very positive ones as well.

    I had an upcoming event in my company where I was supposed to be the best in my area, we were to represent our stores, along with 35 other people, most of which have never met each other. I knew we would be doing a group presentation as well.

    I am a naturally shy person around people I don't know. I don't think I handle rejection well, and so I rarely take those risks. Once I know you though, I think I am a bundle of fun! I listened to this book and I have to say I used the advice to great success. I was able to meet all of the people at the meeting effortlessly and it felt amazing. For the first time I worked a room, and it could not have been better timing. (A party with vice presidents and CEOs, several levels above me!) I found the exchanges to be genuine, and I even found myself remembering names and information I never remembered before.

    All things being even, the advice is simplistic, but it gives you some tools to be able to find those conversations and people you can spend some time getting to know.
