  • Networking for People Who Hate Networking: A Field Guide for Introverts, the Overwhelmed, and the Underconnected

    Devora Zack, an avowed introvert and a successful consultant who speaks to thousands of people every year, found that most networking advice books assume that to succeed you have to become an extrovert. Or at least learn how to fake it. Not at all. There is another way. This audiobook shatters stereotypes about people who dislike networking. They’re not shy or misanthropic. Rather, they tend to be reflective - they think before they talk. They focus intensely on a few things rather than broadly on a lot of things. And they need time alone to recharge.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes. The book provided some interesting insights on the characteristics of extroverts and introverts.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Indifferent. This is not a story book.


    Which character – as performed by Karen Saltus – was your favorite?

    The question makes no sense. There are no characters in the book.


    Could you see Networking for People Who Hate Networking being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Of course not. Maybe as a documentary.

    At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.
