Gripes with the book
- Its more about why one should network, rather than specific methods of how to network
- The book alludes to all these famous personalities but one somehow gets the feel that quite a few passages are deliberately inserted not for their relevance but so the individual's name can be inserted on the front cover.
- The marketing of this book is overzealous
I was about to give up on this book until I got to Chapter 9. There were some very helpful tips that pointed out what I was doing wrong and where I needed to improve. But as with anything, networking takes practice. I would check this out from the library before buying.
I also didn't like the books tendency to be repetitive to a fault. For example a lot of the articles tell you not to be a "bore." This is an important fact, but I am smart enough to get it the first twenty times.
I enjoyed this book, but it didn't help me much....although it did allow me to write a review with a lot of buts.
If you are a new student to networking, Master's is a "must have" for your personal library. If you are a seasoned 'networker,' chances are you'll recognize the incredible job the authors have done in bringing together over 90 of the world's foremost experts on the subject of networking and building relationships.
Master's of Networking soundly reminded me that we all desire to build quality relationships with people. We all want to like, be liked, know and be known and perhaps most importantly, trust and be trusted by others in our day to day business lives. Masters of Networking shows how.
In a day and age where our businesses are increasingly dependent on high-speed, high-tech gadgets and various means of the newest methods of mass communications, Master's of Networking will give it's readers plenty of sage advice, fantastic stories and valuable insights into building trust and building business with other professionals.
As another favorite author and mentor of mine, Jim Rohn, is known to say, "You cannot succeed by yourself. It's hard to find a rich hermit."
The stories presented by the contributing authors are a great testimonial to the power of developing and "working" a network. Misner and Morgan prove that they know how to network with the most powerful people in the business and motivational world--proof that networking works if you work the network.
And, if you haven't read them yet, pick up Misner's first two books: "World's Best Known Marketing Secret," and "Seven Second Marketing" and learn from the master.
Most powerful, however, is the information provided by the BNI Directors. These people are in the trenches of networking, day after day, and offer you a perspective that the big names cannot. They live networking and you should pay special attention to their insights. After all, when was the last time you received networking training from an individual that does it for a living?
