Good effort

The author states his experience, skills, traits and basic tips. There are some interesting view points, but the narration (Got love for my French Canadians) was slow, odd and not connecting with me. Maybe you might though. There are basic primers and Networking is discussed at length. This just wasnt my jam. Good luck.

Practical, story-based and to the point

I met the author (this is the way I got this book) and he is as charming in person as he is his book. Clearly a good networker.
What I enjoyed most about the book is the story-based approach inspired from his personal experience or from the experience of people in his network. Couldn't find a better way to convey a message about networking than sharing stories from your network.
Far from pure theory, the author comes with practical experience from the business world on pretty much every content except Australia and Antarctica. I especially liked how this experience is put in context, as networking in South America may vary substantially than networking in Africa or Eastern Europe.
Last but not least, the book is short and to the point and the Audible edition is narrated by the author himself in a charming French Canadian accented English.
