The 'Brilliant' series of books are always very clearly laid out (I prefer the look of them to the very similar 'Dummies' books), so the advice is easy to flick through and navigate. The tone of the book is generally right, with the right level of advice without stepping over the line and patronising the reader.
I still don't enjoy networking, but at least I now feel that I am moderately capable and competent at it now. It is probably one of the most up-to-date books on networking too, with a chapter about online networking, which is conspicuously absent from many of the other networking books I've come across.
The book proposes very practical actions to follow up and act on to improve one's networking skills and habits. As there is almost 20% of the book length taken by full blank pages, the reader will find plenty of room to scribble down and collect personal thoughts and ideas within the book without having to grab an additional notebook. A good way to keep things organised and information together.
I really recommend this book to anyone who wants to advance themselves in any area of their life. There are some wonderful life secrets in this book. Just reading the book has made me feel part of humanity again; I'm much more positive about what I can achieve by sharing my vision and goals.
I have been really fortunate to hear Steven speak - he is such a genuine person with a huge heart for people. I cannot put into words how much I have been inspired by his presence and wisdom.
This book has all you need and more to start building a network that really works with and for you. You should definitely read this book!
Yet above all, perhaps why I really like this book is because it reminded me what life is about -about connecting with people, ideas and that feeling that you are part of something bigger than yourself!
This book deals head on with the most common disease today -that feeling that we are alone, separate, and unconnected. It quickly dispels all the ugly myths that surround networking -networking is manipulative, etc. and quickly starts to offer hope to anyone embarking on networking and more importantly offers practical tools to transcend any blocks that might be stopping you from forming meaningful relationships in your life.
Buy and read this book! It will help you make the changes that you want in your life. Enjoy!
