3.0 out of 5 stars What about the sacrifice?, 26 April 2009
This review is from: Never Eat Alone: And Other Secrets to Success, One Relationship at a Time (Hardcover)
Never eat alone is a well written, interesting guide on both the benefits and mechanisms of Networking. I particularly like the authors confession as to never having attended a networking event. I can sympathise with this - the networking events I have attended in the past have involved a string of people trying to sell me things.

One of my concerns though, is this guy networks 24/7. In one area he mentions the breakdown of his marriage - perhaps he is a bit networking obsessed and should consider a more balanced measure of success.

Still, a great read with many good suggestions. I have two massive stumbling blocks with networking - fear of talking to strangers and procrastination. I'm sure if I could overcome the first the second would follow - and I'm not sure how much this book has helped me with this.

I had the same problem many years ago. Then a close friend suddenly died. Didn't seem like my (mostly imagined) fears really counted for much on that scale. It changed my whole outlook. I've never really been that frightened of meeting new people, speaking in public, or taking on big challenges ever since. The nearest book to that change I came across was "Feel the Fear and Do it anyway."
