Publisher's Summary

Abandon the networking-for-networking's-sake mentality in favor of a more powerful and effective approach to creating and enhancing connections.

Stop networking. Seriously, stop doing it. Now. It is time to ditch the old networking-for networking's-sake mentality in favor of a more powerful and effective approach to creating and enhancing connections. In Superconnector, Scott Gerber and Ryan Paugh reveal a new category of professionals born out of the social media era: highly valuable community-builders who make things happen through their keen understanding and utilization of social capital. Superconnectors understand the power of relationship-building, problem-solve by connecting the dots at high levels, and purposefully cause different worlds and communities to interact with the intention of creating mutual value.

How can you become a Superconnector? Gerber and Paugh share instructive anecdotes from a who's who roster of high achievers, revealing how to systematically manage a professional community and maximize its value. Of utmost importance is practicing Habitual Generosity, acting on the knowledge that your greatest returns come when you least expect them, and that by putting others' needs first the good karma will flow back to you tenfold. Gerber and Paugh also explore winning strategies such as The Art of Selectivity, a well-honed ability to define which relationships matter most for you and decide how you will maintain them over time. Full of helpful advice on how to communicate with anyone about anything, Google-proof your reputation, and much more, Superconnector is a must-hear for those seeking personal and business success.

Mixed Messaging

The authors go between an implied and occasionally explicit “what’s in it for me” approach to a giving but wise attitude toward relationship building. They use a wide variety of sources and anecdotes, but there primary foundation seems to be Adam Grant, particularly his work in “Give and Take”. Though this book much more focused on becoming a valuable connector of others than is Grant’s publication, I found “Give and Take” expresses a much more consistent and compelling approach to reach the same end. Over all the book was just ok. Helpful in cases buy lacking or incongruous in others. The most useful piece for me was the section on why and how to build an personal website found at the end of chapter 15.

Very Long Ad

Giant advertisement for the author's company. It became very repetitive after the first couple hours.

Ends Strong

If you are a student of building relationships, the first half of this book doesn’t have a lot of value, but it ends strong with how to use today’s technology in the already established concepts of effective networking. It’s definitely worth a listen, if you’re trying to understand how to apply today’s social media world to real relationships.
