I'm skeptical of CEO's who write business books. CEO books are are often written out of vanity; to establish a historical document that THEY existed. David Bradford's book defies this kind of self aggrandizement. While this book was hatched from a highly successful CEO (true to David's obviously other-centered nature) the book is about YOU...for YOU...to enrich YOU. Bradford is a teacher and encourager who divulges practical tactics to be a better business person - but more importantly, a better human being. Want a better life? More friends? More money? Read David's book today. And, have your children read the book...BEFORE they unwittingly develop habits that will hamstring their life-growth. (I also bought two copies for my sons)

I am a long time friend and associate of the author, David Bradford, and have had the chance to observe these steps and stories in action. I've been wondering when he would write this book and am delighted to see that it is finally here. These are powerful principles. I've seen them work for David and I've seen them work for many others. It is astonishing how much good can come from learning to network naturally and proactively, without an agenda of "what's in it for me". I would recommend this book for everyone, regardless of your professional role or aspirations, and that you find the opportunity to meet David in person at one of his upcoming engagements as well.

This book is fantastic. I'm struggling to put it down every time I read it. From David's storied examples to his top tips to help you it really is a book that will eventually (if you apply the lessons) help you to Up Your Game.

Having met David in person last year at Ardingly Convention in the UK I can honestly say his personality shows through this book. I genuinely believe that if you do what he teaches in this book you can be hugely successful too.

I completely recommend this item.

"Up Your Game" is a great book that changed the way I thought about networking. I wasn't much of a networker because I didn't want to come off as self serving. However, this book presents networking the way it should be taught from the beginning-- a way to help others and establish mutually beneficial relationships. I really enjoyed "Up Your Game" and look forward to applying the principles in my nonprofit career and in my personal life.
