    "Very Good"

    Most of the concepts related are generic networking tips but the strength is McKay's translation of the concepts into practical advice. His use of his own business examples gives the material a greater importance. Listening to the book is like getting advice from a successful uncle. I started networking before I even finished the book and the payoffs were immediate.

    "Not Hands on Practical"

    I like Harvey's reading style, and I enjoyed his earlier "Sharks" book very much, but I found this book lacked practical substance. It's long on homilies about the benefits of having a network, and the pitfalls of not having one, but short on practical advice.

    I give it a C-

    "If you didn't think networking was important...."

    This book is both informative and entertaining. Although I believed that networking was important before listening to this book I soon realised that my own network isn't as big as it should be. I don't have that many people that I could turn to for the illustrious 2am phone call.
    I highly recommend this book to anyone. Networking can help anyone throughout their life.

    "One of the best networking books"

    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"

    "Great Book"

    I really enjoyed Harvey's book and have made a note to give it a listen about every 12 months. His tips and point of view on how to cultivate a cirlce of friends and associates is priceless. Harvey's reading is also very warm, much better than the average narrator.

    "Top Ten Business Books"

    Diligence may be number one but Networking is critical to success. Mackay doesn't offer gimmicks - he offers solid, practical, and sincere advice. He provides a number of personal illustrations that drive home his recommendations. Highly recommended - easy to listen to - absolutely worth the money.

    "Dug It !!!"

    Harvey presents a clear and concise path on how to network and the importance of cultivating your networking skills. Harvey really "digs into" the subject matter in an entertaining and easy to listen to fashion. Hopefully ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN etal don't try their hand at networking the Harvey Mackay way.

    "Good book, if slightly repetitive"

    I thought this was an excellent book, but at times it could be slightly repetitive. The main premise of the book is that you should work on meeting the people you will need in the future before you need them. So you should know a lawyer, because if you ever need one you don't want to spend the time researching which lawyer is the best one in town. Despite the repetition, it's got a lot of great information about networking that will be a big help for the novice networker.
