Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"Networking." Ugh. What is it about the word that makes women squeamish? We say we don’t have the time, we don’t know how, or we just plain don’t want to. Yet study after study has shown that interconnecting, meaningful relationships are crucial to our professional and personal success. And here we are, fabulous at forming social networks with family, friends, and even neighbors, but suddenly possessed with stage fright when it comes to building the networks we desperately need to reach our business goals.

Table Talk is not a one-size-fits-all networking book. It’s specifically tailored to women and our unique concerns, obstacles, and lifestyles. With its real world tips and best friend style, Table Talk teaches women to use the skills we’ve got to build the relationships we need to move ahead in both work and play. It introduces a lifestyle and language about creating connections that will change the whole landscape and have everybody talking.

Concise and conversational, Table Talk offers concrete advice on how women in all industries can put the skills we already have to work building our careers. It begins with the premise that women are excellent at communicating and building social networks but that we hesitate or stumble when using these skills to further our goals. Table Talk then bridges that percieved gap between women's exceptional social skills and what we think of as "networking" by offering practical and easy methods of table talking. For example, sending an article of interest on to a friend. And the point? We do this anyway! It's just like sharing with a close friend. Table Talk teaches women to cultivate relationships in ways that incur minimal stress and provide maximum benefit. Every woman, whatever her professional and personal goals, needs to Table Talk!

This book is for every woman who has ever cringed at the thought of "networking," yet known that it was something she needed to do. Not only do the authors offer practical advice for elegant ways to cultivate mutually beneficial relationships, they do so in a breezy style that makes the book a pleasure to read. I particularly appreciate the authors' recognition of the different ways in which men and women network, and their focus on improving women's professional relationships.
While the book is geared for professional women who are cultivating clients, its lessons translate more broadly. As a writer whose first book came out last year, I plan to use the lessons I've learned through Table Talk to help me develop a broader network of publishing contacts.

Save your tuition money and buy this book instead. Not only does this book tell you how to build a successful network, it helps you do in a way that fits the individual. I've read many books on the subject, and none of them hit the nail on the head like the authors of this book. Networking should be fun, natural, creative, and an extension of your personality -- not someone else's. Read this book and it will all be pefectly clear. I highly recommend it for a new grad.

Empowering and funny, too! It's a slim volume that's an easy read and yet still provides good advice without being intimidating.
I really did feel inspired after reading this book. The authors give you practical tips that are scaleable to your actual life, so you can do as much or as little as you're comfortable with and still feel good. The book made me look at my existing relationships in a new light to see potential connections that I can work on now and in the future.
I like the way they redefine the mentor/mentee relationship. Too often we see mentorship as a one-way street, but the authors emphasize that both parties can and must benefit from the relationship.
This would be a great book for young women entering the workforce. (There are some tips here I could have used when I left college!) Also great for women contemplating (or being forced to contemplate) life/career change.

In this economy, networking is essential but that doesn't make it appealing. "Table Talk, The Savvy Girl's Alternative to Networking" is a phenomenal resource for the young, urban, professional woman. Most women tend to shy away from the mere idea of networking - I am one of those women. But Solar-Tuttle and Danielson make it easy and appealing for women by having us do what we already do so naturally - create connections by communicating with other women whose company we enjoy.
With its humor and hipster style, the book is an ideal read for the commute into work on the bus or train. I literally flew threw the chapters. The sound advice provided in "Table Talk" will help any woman further her career at her current company or make the leap to her dream job.
