Format: Paperback
This is the introduction to BNI, the world's largest business referral and networking organization. Dr. Misner traces the history, growing pains, and innovations that have resulted in the best system for growing your business through referrals. Existing members should read to understand the organization and prospects should read so they will be compelled to seek out the group in their area. The other books in the series should be read subsequently so as to gain the greatest benefit. My involvement in BNI has been the single-largest contributor to the growth of my business. Read this first and then the others that follow so that you can claim your benefit, too!

Format: Paperback
If you are a BNI member, you'll receive this book as part of your MSP training. It is a somewhat interesting background on the growth of BNI, the development of the culture, the approach of Givers Gain and the importance of the BNI system. If you are not familar with BNI, the book won't make a lot of sense. A good background for the BNI member, not all that useful if you aren't.
