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."

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!

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.

This Book

I did not know what to expect when I first started listening to this audio book. I have found that Bob and his unique way of writing really helps you explore the things you've been pushing off or avoiding to deal with. I definitely gleaned a lot from this informative book. I can confidently say I'm ready to pursue and go beyond my dreams. Thank you Bob Beaudine.

It really is all about WHO you know

I read this book as a follow-up to 2 Chairs because I liked Bob's writing style, and this book did not disappoint. He shows people that networking works well, but only if you do it the right way. Passing out business cards at trade shows and other functions is not nearly as effective as tapping into a network of trusted friends who can tap into their network of trusted friends to open doors and marshal resources. The book was also a great reminder for me to invest more time into developing closer personal relationships with others. If you're looking for a friend, they are hard to find. But, if you want to be a friend, opportunities are everywhere. Highly recommend.

Unexpected

I love business self-help books however when my boss suggested This book, I turned my nose up a bit...”sports Recruiter” I thought ‘I am not interested in sports recruiting nor do I want to hear about sports.’ I like sports but not to read/listen about them. This book turned up the volume of how I believe in the power of referrals. This now cements what I thought to be true BUT I was still making the effort to break into certain circles. No more chasing. let me love up my who and keep polishing my who friendships. I got who. My Who gots who, who has who etc.... Loved this book. Thank you!
