Product Description

Review

'This is not an "easy" book. It is a genuine original. It will-should-must change your life. I know Tim Sanders - and he and this book are for real. Believe it. And become a (wildly successful) "lovecat."' (Tom Peters, author of IN SEARCH OF EXCELLENCE and )

'Aretha Franklin knew the secret: RESPECT. Tim Sanders knows how to spin it. In business, you get ahead by helping other people get what they want - it's simple, it's obvious, but it's so easy to forget. Love is the Killer App reminds us that maybe...looking out for #1 is not the way to get ahead.' (Seth Godin, author of PERMISSION MARKETING and UNL )

'Tim Sanders shows us that being a "lovecat" is a great business strategy and I whole-heartedly agree. This book teaches us the value of relationships in the workplace, and it's rich with practical, effective strategies for enhancing and developing them.' (Philip C. McGraw, Ph.D., author of LIFE STRATEGIES )

'Tim Sanders' fresh new look at what truly drives the business world should spark a new trend in offices and corporations around the country. Instead of focusing on technology as the driver of success, this dot-com executive looks at people. He celebrates an inquistive, compassionate spirit, and has a simple, powerful message that should resonate in every corner of our work and personal lives.' (Faith Popcorn, Founder of BrainReserve, Inc., auth ) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
CONCEPT

The principles of this book have been covered before, but the simplicity and context with which they have been delivered makes it truly memorable and fun to read. Furthermore, the references to other great books on a wide variety of subjects is a real benefit. In essence, the book is about LOVE BUSINESS - the act of intelligently and sensibly sharing your intangibles with your bizpartners. These intangibles are separated into 3 key themes: knowledge, network and compassion. Get this all going and you're a LOVECAT - and it's worth committing to becoming a LOVECAT with your bizpartners. As Tim says, it's the difference between having people's time and their attention - like ham and eggs. The chicken is involved, the pig is committed.

BACKGROUND

Knowledge

Tim describes knowledge as everything you have learned and everything you continue to learn. He suggests that news gives you awareness - a measurement of today - whereas books give you knowledge - a measure of yesterday, today and tomorrow. Awareness is finite whereas knowledge is forever. He suggests a four-step programme to help make knowledge work: aggregation - getting the right books; encoding - effectively annotating and commenting on the content of the book as you read each section; processing - assimilating the content of the books you read, knowing its `Big Thought' and maybe writing a review on it; and application - the employment and effective sharing of the knowledge you gain with your colleagues and bizpartners.

Network

The benefit and need for networking in the 21st Century is generally well understood. As Tim says, our future success will be based on the people we know.

Having read "LOVE is the Killer App" from cover to cover, I can't believe we have gotten so far way from what our grandparents and parents taught us. Be nice. Say thank you. Look out for friends and colleagues. Keep your word and Share!!
Tim Sanders has got it right with a beautiful book that is elegantly told. His book speaks volumes to our personal and business world. The Golden Rule applies more than EVER. This is a deeply inspiring book that I hope changes the world one reader at a time. I loved it's message.
DO GOOD and walk lightly across the business landscape. A wonderful book for the 21st Century.

Format: Paperback
the book spells out a three part plan that helps you build your personal brand, through buliding knowledge, building a strong network, then shareing that knowled along with a strong dose of compassion. An excellent book that distills down the thoughts and feelings of this old school love cat, Biz Love is the way to realy make your personal value grow, but not because you want to grow your personal value, but because you want to spread the love. Read this if you want to trully enjoy your professional life.

Everything that successful people around me are doing suddenly seem to make so much sense! Be generous, be brave. In the work place, everyone is so careful about sharing information. It is in sharing information and understanding each other that we could achieve even greater things!
Share your knowledge, share your network, share your compassion! Let your business associates know that you are there to support them and celebrate their success! The office would be such a friendlier place with more love cats!
