I had high hopes when I purchased this book. The reviews were numerous and glowing. But I have to say its a disappointment. I suppose if you are selling commodity products, or undifferentiated services, some of this advice could be helpful. But overall it seemed caught in a time warp, tired and old advice. Then I went back and looked at the reviews and saw that many were over 10 years old. No wonder it seemed dated. If you're just starting out, or your industry, business or customers are not tech savvy, or your customers are not wise to these gimmicks, then this book might be OK for a starter. I just have to believe there's better stuff out there.

I am brand new to the "network marketing" arena. I have spent my entire adult life working as a Registered Nurse and have just recently switched gears and started up my own business. So, networking is new to me and so completely out of my previous realm. As a nurse, I never needed referrals! People were bound to have babies... whether I asked them to or not!

Mr. Burg's book came highly recommended to me by one of my business colleagues. Am I ever glad I listened to this recommendation! This book is very well written. It is clear, concise, and to the point. Even for a novice networker, like myself, the concepts presented here are easy to follow. It just makes sense that these approaches would work. Bob teaches people how to be non-intrusive, how to play nice in the sand box, and how to get the referrals in a professional manner. This is the thing I love most about this book. Not only does he show you how to network, he is also teaching people how to be true professionals.

Lastly, I have to say that I know for a fact that Bob not only teaches others how to follow these concepts... he actually uses them!!! As I was reading, I had a question about where I could purchase the notecards and scratch pads he talks about. So, I went to his website and was unable to find the information I was looking for. Well, I decided to click on the "contact me" icon and ask my question. Within a few hours, I had a personal response from Bob in my email inbox. I was impressed beyond words that he took the time to personally respond to me AND he did it in a timely manner!!!! To me, that spoke volumes about the man behind the book.

I will definately be recommending this book to others in my organization. I believe this is a must read for anyone that depends on networking to fuel their business!!!!

In "Endless Referrals", which I refer to constantly (I am a 15-year veteran in the financial services industry, and do not cold-call, so all my business is based on the generation of referrals), Bob Burg states what some would call the obvious: concern yourself with the welfare of others first, and it will come back to you in a big way. I believe this to be true, and Burg provides several strategies - mostly through the use of questions - designed to break down barriers and build rapport in a short period of time.
In garnering referrals, I often go point-blank with many of my clients, asking them the traditional "Who do you know....?" question. However, this is obviously not useful when meeting someone for the very first time. That's where Burg's strategies come in handy. That's not to say that this book doesn't contain ideas geared toward those you know already; it does.
I bought two copies of this book and gave one to one of the rookies in my office. My copy is highlighted from start to finish. I refer to it constantly. The book is an easy read, an enjoyable read, and an excellent source of extremely useful information.
The only requirement: You must ACT, and apply the ideas found within. If you do, nothing should stand in the way of your gathering many new sources of business.
I recommend this book highly - and I've read many on this subject.

People think they're networking when they hand out a business card and slap a new acquaintance on the back. However, true networking is all about getting people to "know, like and trust" you. After all, says Bob Burg, this is why people will buy from you. How do you become one of these esteemed people? By encouraging people to talk about themselves. By being the first one to do the referring in a relationship. And, by using Burg's easy-to-apply strategies for attracting and qualifying prospects, getting first appointments and following through. Burg constantly reminds us that if you help others selflessly, you will reap the benefits. In fact, he argues many of his points long after you are nodding your head in agreement, but the points are usually well worth making. If you want to become a high-powered networker rather than an occasional networker, we recommend this book to you.

I just finished my first read of Endless Referrals and it is already having a positive impact on my business. Bob's advice is solid, easy to understand, and easy to implement.

Before I finished reading this book, I ordered my thank you note cards. The response to these cards has been incredible. I've sent them to people I meet and have gotten positive feedback from several people. One person told me that I must be special because nobody takes the time to write a note. I also send them to people I already know as appropriate just to say thank you - be it for lunch or advice.

I'm now reading Endless Referrals for the second time, this time with a highlighter at hand. In fact, I'm probably going to buy a second copy - one for the office and one for home. I plan on continuing to implement Bob's ideas.

I've contacted Bob directly and have gotten very helpful feedback from him. I look forward to learning more from Bob in the future.
