I've recently discovered this author and this is the 2nd book I have read. I really loved this book and so far have not been disappointed with the author's work. Just starting on another of her books....

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.

Good Info, OK Book, Bad Narration

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

The Book:
I've read this book and listened to the Audiobook and have to say that the info presented is of good quality, but the method of presenting the information leaves a lot to be desired. In writing the book, Mr Ferrazi has tried to present his views on networking and does a very good job of explaining how he has done this and been successful. However, he also tends to "drop names" and come of in a very "holier than thou" manner.

As a book, it's what it is...someone explaining how they have become successful at what they do and is worth the time to read. The reader will get some nice "nuggets" of information that can be used.

The Audiobook:
The narrator comes across as someone who is trying to act "high class" with a nasally voice and blue-blood attitude. There is something about his voice that has just turned me off from listening.

John and Jenny were just beginning their life together. They were young and in love, with a perfect little house and not a care in the world. Then they brought home Marley, a wriggly yellow furball of a puppy. Life would never be the same.

I was skeptical about this book at first...but after 2 minutes of listening, I was hooked. My wife and I listened to this book during a recent road trip and loved the story of the trials and tribulations of Marley and his owner. After listening, we were ready to go get our own "marley" :)

This is the only book that people should read regarding managing people, leading people and selling to people. All other books on the market just reiterate the topics in this book.
