I bought this book to help me with my networking experience, and to boost my confidence. Knowing that someone else (and probably everyone else) is going through the same difficulties and discomfort when beginning to network is reassuring.

Did I learn anything from it? Yes, a bit, but the most important factor is that it reinforced what I already knew, gave me guidance on how to improve on my networking skills, and has helped with my confidence as well.

Is it a 'join the dots' guide to networking? Only to a small degree. There are no instructions on how to 'do this, or that' to get things right, but as each of us are individual what works for one person may not work for another. I think the mix of guidance, ideas, pointers and suggestions is just about right and will be truly beneficial to networking beginners.

Will it make you a networking superstar? No, only you can do that through hard work, determination, and by getting out there and doing it.

Good book, good read, and I dip into it here and there when I need a boost.

Thanks Stefan, I appreciate the effort you put into this.

Networking for dummies - my 40 second review

Whether your a Networking Virgin or a superstar, if you want to know how to make your online networking work find something to lift your results which are already satisfactory, or you wish you knew what to do after you have eaten your Sausage and beans at 8 in the morning, this book is absolutely for you! Stefan combines humour, real life experience and his phenomenal expertise to enable you to transform your business. Get this book, it will change your life, and I truly believe it might change your personal as well as business life too!

Want to know a bit more? Here's my review insight...

It was 2.15am this morning and my finger swiped across the screen of the kindle for the last time for my first read of this amazing book!

The emotions which flooded me were many and varied. I have learned you can't change the past and to dwell on it serves no one. So I only allowed the strong wish I had "read this 15 years ago - that my world today would be so different" to stay with me only momentarily.

It has however excited me for the future. Even as someone who is currently working for an organisation, and one that has little understanding of the power and importance of online networking. It has reignited my passion, excited me with what is possible and given me a stash of new tips and tricks.

This is not just a book, it's a toolkit. I am rarely seen to read a book again but this is one of those books that as things progress I look forward to referring others to this awesome book and to coming back to it again and again in the future. Thank you Stefan, your an amazing giving man this is an amazing book!

I've been going to business networking meetings for 3 years now and never really got as much from it as I would like to so decided to see what this book had to offer.

I really liked it. Much of it is common sense, you know the kind of common sense that is so obvious when someone points it out to you but you hadn't spotted it yourself. I read this from cover to cover although you don't have to. I've already started to do a couple of things differently since reading this and I can see myself dipping in to it from time to time to grab more tips that I can integrate. I'm feeling more confident when I walk into a room these days.

All in all a very readable book and I would honestly say that everyone who does any kind of networking will learn something from it.It's true in competitive sports and I think true in networking the difference between 1st and 2nd place is a tiny margin. This book can help you to get that edge.

Easy to read and advice that everyone can apply to their own situation. The way the book is structured means it's just as easy to dip in or out or to read in short sections as it is to read straight through. There's plenty of advice for novice networkers but just as much for those who have been successfully attending events for years - there's always something to improve on and this book helps you to look at things from a different perspective, or reminds you of those things you've forgotten or have let slip. Great advice often seems obvious once you read it but for some reason you've not previously realised it.

Business Networking for Dummies is a brilliant tool to help you review and improve your networking skills - well worth taking the time to read.

This book is not a pillow, nor is it a coaster for your coffee mug or a pretty decoration for your shelf Which is what happens with many business books. They're lugged around for a while to read before going to sleep or when you're on coffee breaks, then sit on a desk, finally gathering dust forgotten on a shelf. It would be a huge mistake to do that with this book.

If you are new to networking, read this book. If you've been networking since the dawn of time, you definitely need to read this book to drag yourself into this century.
