It's clear that David Bradford walks his talk. This book is chock full of incredible stories from David's own career where he's put the principles he outlines here into action. The wonderful truth is that these principles really are "timeless" - almost common sense, yet David presents them with a fresh perspective. Anyone from a college graduate just entering the job force, to a seasoned executive has something important to glean from this book.

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.

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 CEO books are are often written out of vanity; to establish a historical document that THEY existed.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)
