  • 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.

    What made the experience of listening to Networking for People Who Hate Networking the most enjoyable?

    6 Thumbs out of 5 -- This humorous, fast paced, light hearted but info packed book is a masterpiece of the elusive-obvious. Introverts can easily be more effective networkers than Extroverts. We Introverts (yes, I ping the I-meter on the Myers-Briggs) are connectors and not just collectors of business cards. This book is 4 hours of and 1 minute that is well worth the time of anyone who relies on relationships to accomplish their work.

  • Why Should Extroverts Make All the Money?

    Shy people and introverts generally avoid actively propelling themselves into the public eye. They would much rather work quietly behind the scenes. But is that enough? In our age of increasing workplace competition and seemingly relentless self-promotion, some experts assert that it will be the more "extroverted" personality types, those who speak out at meetings and give charismatic presentations, for example, who will succeed in the business world. But why should extroverts make all the money?

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Balzano "get's it", so I wouldn't say the book misses the mark. But geez, how many subliminal other agendas can an author have that "seasons" the topic of their work?

    If this was the only book for Introverts on Networking, then buy it. But it isnt. So, I recommend "Networking for People Who Hate Networking: A Field Guide for Introverts, the Overwhelmed, and the Underconnected" by Devora Zack

    How to Be a Fierce Competitor is the definitive “how-to” guide for understanding how to spot opportunity and then capitalize on it. This practical resource for business leaders and managers shows exactly how the savvy few who rise to the top stay focused and alert.

    What did you like best about How to Be a Fierce Competitor? What did you like least?

    I listened to this little book last night & today and suggest that it is worth hearing or reading. It has many gems, but they're mixed amongst some rigid and work-a-holic clods. I'm a fan of Jeffery Fox, so I'd like to give this one four stars, but fairness says three stars out of five. Fox could benefit from reading Covey more.
    This is a good book to listen to on a 3 hour drive with nothing better to do.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jeffrey J. Fox again?

    Absolutely.
