Publisher's Summary

Do you know that key relationships have been specifically placed to help you in ways you never imagined? Do you realize there are special people who are not just happenstance acquaintances but strategic relationships to help you find the life of your dreams? Have you missed the simplicity behind this mysterious thing called DESTINY? Perhaps the real problem of finding your dream isn't about who you don't know, but whom you've neglected.

In The Power of Who! Bob Beaudine presents a revolutionary concept that will get you moving toward your dreams and goals in ways you never imagined. This audiobook challenges many widely held presumptions, including the importance of traditional networking. Instead he offers a different plan - a time-tested, unique approach. First Beaudine leads you to identify people within your group of friends and friends of friends who are the foundation for making connections. Then he takes you through what you want to accomplish in life and encourages you to dare to dream, to DREAM BIG!

EVERYONE should read this book

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

A silly treatment of a serious topic

Would you try another book from Bob Beaudine and/or Bob Beaudine?

No

What was most disappointing about Bob Beaudine’s story?

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.

Would you be willing to try another one of Bob Beaudine’s performances?

No

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

If you are not already well connected to a bunch of rich influential people...skip it.

Who do you know?

What did you love best about The Power of Who?

Maybe, just maybe it is more about "who you know" than "who you are."

What did you like best about this story?

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.

What does Bob Beaudine bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Love it!

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

It's not Who you Are... It's who you know!

The worst audio book and worst self-help book

Any additional comments?

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.

Ask and you shall receive!

If you could sum up The Power of Who in three words, what would they be?

There is help all around you.

What did you like best about this story?

The realization that whatever you need , there is someone close to you that can help. You just have to ASK!

EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS BOOK!

What did you love best about The Power of Who?

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!!

What about Bob Beaudine’s performance did you like?

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!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

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.
