Do you want to get ahead in life? Climb the ladder to personal success? The secret, master networker Keith Ferrazzi claims, is in reaching out to other people. As Ferrazzi discovered in early life, 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 lays out the specific steps - and inner mindset - he uses to reach out to connect with the thousands of colleagues, friends, and associates on his contacts list, people he has helped and who have helped him. And in the time since Never Eat Alone was published in 2005, the rise of social media and new, collaborative management styles have only made Ferrazzi’s advice more essential for anyone hoping to get ahead in business.

Say something about yourself!
Loved it but it just seemed liked it kept repeating a lot of the same information. I would have preferred a shorter version I suppose.
It's not too often that I don't finish an audiobook but this one became unbearable! The narration came off as super arrogant and I imagine that was helped by reading about how wonderful the author is for hours upon hours. As someone that enjoys listening to audiobooks to improve my interactions with people and to provide new ideas and perspectives, I do not recommend this one.
For me, the content was the same old same old. Nothing new, just old ideas and concepts presented from a different author. I was looking forward to some new ideas and suggestions but in my opinion the author never produced. Mostly common sense suggestions - meet lots of people, make then feel important, help them so they will help you.
This is really for people that need a VERY large network.
Most of the book can be summarized as be nice to people and donate your time now for future benefit.
This book is all about the importance of relationships. I don't think there was a moment in my life where I would disagree with the thought that relationships are important, but this book convinced me that if relationships are in fact important then I should be investing not only a lot of time in them but a lot of thought and effort as well. The author gives you a ton of interesting stories to show you ways that you can invest in relationships in thoughtful and helpful ways. I don't necessarily 100% agree with every single thing said, but there are so many great nuggets in his book that it is well worth the read.
Kieth Ferrazi presents the secrets the Ivy Leaguers use to stay elite: a deep sense of responsibility and effort towards developing and maintaining personal relationships. Ferrazi shares his background from a working class family and the efforts his father took to initiate his sons career and social development. Ferrazi uses simple language and interesting success and failure stories to show how he has made friends and influenced people. A good read that most will learn from if they so choose.
This book is fantastic! It gives great outward and inward principles on how to truly develop long term, and thus rich, healthy, relationships of all kinds. Never Eat Alone is not only concrete in it's ideology of success through love integrated networking, but also incredibly practical in it's applications all the way down to when to send an email versus when to make a call... Great for all readers
Read this at the right time in my journey and was great. Helped me solidify and polish certain skills I need to run a successful consulting business
I could not believe how arrogant the author is, name dropping right and left, fixated on who went to went to school when. Maybe he gets better after one hour and five minutes. But that is when my gag reflex kicked in. The narration was fine.
