I have read "The Art of War" several times and thought it would be nice to have a copy that I could listen to when driving. I was discouraged when the reader could not pronounce the author's name correctly. I was also surprised at the poor quality of the recording itself. Take the time and read the book, it will serve you much better.
I have listen to other networking books, but this is the best one yet. Harvey Mackay does an excellent job of describing basic techniques for networking. His examples hit home with me when I think back to situations and how I could have handled it differently.
If there is only one book on networking that you buy, I would suggest "Dig Your Well Before You're Thirsty"
This book is filled with useful information, it just take 9 hours to find it. I listen to audio books every day to and from work and this is the first one that I was not able to finish. The book seemed to drag on and on. I would put this lower on you wish list for now.
Being new to the management ranks I found this book to provide guidelines that all managers should use. When talking with seasoned managers their comments were "this is all common sense." Yes, it is common sense, but it is about using your common sense to get projects done. That is what this book points out to the listener.
