    Keith Ferrazzi is a master networker who claims his secret is merely reaching out to other people. And what distinguishes highly successful people from everyone else is the way they use the power of relationships, so that everyone wins. In Never Eat Alone, Ferrazzi presents the specific steps and mindset he uses to connect with the thousands of individuals in his Rolodex.

    "Good, but self-glorifying"
    Overall

    This book has some good content. It's obvious that Ferrazzi is good at networking and has learned how to meet people--especially since the entire book is peppered with name-dropping and annoying, at times condescending, self-praise. Every time I listen I get the feeling that his overarching message is: "one day you could be great, maybe even half as great as I am." I kept expecting after the first chapters for him to tell some stories from other points of view--maybe historical or from great business men, but it never happens. "I" is the most commonly used word in the book, Ya-ya the most often mentioned company (he was the CEO). The narrator's slightly nasal voice doesn't help with the tone of the book either.

    All that having been said, there is definitely some good advice and reading this book provides real motivation to start forming better relationships. For example, I think his advice to look for what you can give to, not get from a relationship, is excellent.
