This review is from: Networking for People Who Hate Networking: A Field Guide for Introverts, the Overwhelmed, and the Underconnected (Paperback)
When was the last time you read a business book that combined intellectual rigor, immense practicality and uproarious humor? If it's been a while (like forever) since you've read a book like that, buy this one. Devora Zack completely redefines networking - both how we think about it and what it takes to succeed at it. She backs her ideas up with encyclopedic wisdom, ranging from neuroscience to philosphy to, well, the Lemonheads. Not only does this book offer a new and helpful perspective, but it will make you laugh. Devora is just plain funny - casual, self-deprecating direct and irreverent. This is a wonderful book - and the only business book I'd call a 'page-turner.'
