Although networking has become a vital tool for landing the right job and climbing the career ladder, many people would still prefer to watch rather than take part in office politics. Are you one of them? Are you an introvert?
If you answered "yes" to most of these questions, chances are you're an introvert. Some of these personality traits might be standing in the way of your success, but it doesn't have to be that way. Dr. Frederica Balzano can show you how to succeed as an introvert.
Just finished the audiobook “Why Should Extroverts Make All the Money?”. It was a little repetitive but it was worth going through. The author talked of the networked world we live in and the importance of building connections and managing your own career. In many ways, through the examples, the book was geared to those starting their own businesses and in particularly consultancies. Yet, it is useful for just about anyone who has introverted tendencies. I’d give in 3 out of 5 stars. Would have given it 4 out of 5 but I felt it was 1-2 hours too long. Hours 4-5 in the audiobook were the best.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Balzano "get's it", so I wouldn't say the book misses the mark. But geez, how many subliminal other agendas can an author have that "seasons" the topic of their work?
If this was the only book for Introverts on Networking, then buy it. But it isnt. So, I recommend "Networking for People Who Hate Networking: A Field Guide for Introverts, the Overwhelmed, and the Underconnected" by Devora Zack
