From the Inside Flap
Did you ever wonder why some people are more successful than you? Why they always seem to get better deals, more sales, bigger promotions, or just live a better life? This is especially frustrating if you feel you are better qualified, have more skills, or offer a better product. Often you may be tempted to explain away their success as simple luck or the result of being in the right place at the right time.
Scratch the surface and you will discover that most of these highly accomplished people are just ordinary folks -people like you and me - who happen to possess highly refined networking skills.
Successful people do not achieve their success on their own instead, they surround themselves with a well-developed, sophisticated support network. Find out what they do. How they do it. And how you can be a Master of Networking.
