Publisher's Summary

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.

Ferrazzi's form of connecting to people is based on generosity, helping friends connect with other friends. He distinguishes genuine relationship-building from the crude, desperate glad-handling usually associated with "networking". In the course of the book, Ferrazzi outlines the timeless strategies shared by the world's most connected individuals, from Katherine Graham to Bill Clinton, Vernon Jordan to the Dalai Lama.

Chock full of specific advice on handling rejection, getting past gatekeepers and more, Never Eat Alone is destined to take its place as an inspirational classic.

    "An unbearable narration"

    The narrator of this audiobook spoke at an unbearably slow pace. This book's subject matter, while informative, is not complex. Were this book about a more technical topic, the narrator's very slow and deliberate pace might be justified. However, this narrator tested my patience. I couldn't tollerate it anymore after 15 minutes and just gave up. However, I did later read(skim) the book at the library and found the content mildly helpful.

    "Like a giant Christmas dinner"

    Let me start off with the worst fact about this listen: this book is huge! Burnt to CD, I'm left with 9 disks shimmying around my car. With all of the audio that is there, there really is some great things to hear about networking. It starts with building, and moves to refining. A great get for anyone who commutes, and commutes far.

    Story
    "Motivated to Reconnect"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Never Eat Alone to be better than the print version?

    I never read the print version but I'm going to buy the book because I like the information.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It reminded me how easy networking can be and how we do it on a daily basis without even trying.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    N/A


    What did you learn from Never Eat Alone that you would use in your daily life?

    I'm going to make an effort to truly use the linkedin contacts I have. The book reminded me that just because you know the names of people doesn't mean you know them.


    Any additional comments?

    Good listen, reminds you that everyone is important and everyone knows somebody.

    Story
    "Great read for advancing your career!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book I found to be novel, insightful, and a must read for anyone who works professionally, runs their own business, or for those who just want to meet others. It's the first book I have downloaded that I think I will listen to repeatedly. I work in the social services field and I will definitely be using his suggestions in multiple ways.


    What other book might you compare Never Eat Alone to and why?

    It's truely novel. The only other book that I think is as good of a read is the 4 hour work week. It's not really similar but it's equally as useful.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the description of what one should do at a conference.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Its self help there is no reason to make a film about it.

    "Excellent Book"

    The content of this book is great! And, although Keith Ferrazzi does a good job reading his book, his reading pace was a little slow for me and didn't hold my attention as well as I personally would have liked.

    If you apply the lessons learned in this book, your life, and career will never be the same.

    "I have to admit that this is gold"

    The concepts explained here are truly a guide on how to live a life. I believe that relationships are at the core of everything, and Mr. Ferrazzi did a phenomenal job by putting together all these concepts, ideas, and action plan to make the best out of our ability to interact with people.

    I am convinced that if i put to practice everything thought here, i would be successful.

    "Core Knowledge for Social Networking"

    Amazingly well done. Inspiring to say the least.

    6 months later, after being new in a new town and a new high end position, after using his principals, I can say it was a solid success.

    It opened my eyes to 'Networking' Not just for business to get sales, but for friends, contacts etc. This has turned me slowly into a Super Connector and the power when you connect people is truly amazing. Now my Social Calendar is full, to full in fact. New friends are accumlating and I am reaching out to help others with this very book.

    This and Dale Carnegies 9 Principals puts you on a solid core.
    I also reccommend Psycho-Cybernetics.. with these 3 you are in control of YOUR LIFE !



    50% soild facts and techniques, 50% Spiritual on living a life for others, it strikes the right balance.
