The principles, content and presentation were great & everyone should hear it, but the high light was that the author was talking (reading) to me. it was like it was a personal, focused conversation with your mentor. Thanks Bob

This a Mitt Romney type of story, like the comment if you need money for college borrow it from your parents. This guy is some sort of religious nut who believes that everyone has rich and powerful friends. This book is written for people who don't really need any help. His assumptions are ludacris and his facts are unsupported.
If you are not already well connected to a bunch of rich influential people...skip it.
Maybe, just maybe it is more about "who you know" than "who you are."
The book challenged me to pay more attention to my circle of friends and I have found HUGE value in my relationships both professional and personal.
It's not Who you Are... It's who you know!
Identify your 100.
No. I did like Bob's voice.
We all have 100 connections in our life. Turn to them for help.
Good job. Nothing special.
Yes. Nothing real new or earth shaking.
Common sense. But some good ideas.
You know the drill with self-help books - using cliches, anecdotes, analogies to fill in the space between a few nuggets of useful insights. This book has an endless supply of fillers but sadly no insights worth my time what so ever. Based on my experience of listening to scores of audiobooks in my library and scores of self-help books, this is the worst. I bought it based because of the good rating, but I should have noticed the strong presence of 1-star reviews and asked why.
There is help all around you.
The realization that whatever you need , there is someone close to you that can help. You just have to ASK!
First book of the new 2012 year and by far one of my favorites. I highly recommend it to anyone. Anyone who is a human being, male or female, should read this at least once. It has some vital stuff that can impact your life in a very positive way both in business and in your personal arena. Bob reads the book on Audio and is a joy to listen to. You feel as though you are getting the undivided attention of someone that has much to teach you. I can't recommend it enough! Read it, listen to it, get it into your everyday life one way or another!!
Bob is awesome! He reads the book and it is a joy to listen to. You feel as though you are getting the undivided attention of someone that has much to teach you. You can tell he has vast experience both personally and past down to him from generations before him. I hope he knows how much I appreciate him taking the time to write and read this book. It was inspiring!
I rarely get to do that. I use Audible and Audiobooks for when I'm driving and traveling so I can get more books in through out the year.
I truly enjoyed this audible recommendation from a friend. There are some strong practical points made on connecting with people and making a real difference in the world.
