About the Author

Colin Wright is the author, entrepreneur, and full-time traveler behind the blog ExileLifestyle.com, where he writes for an audience of nearly 2 million readers, on topics ranging from philosophy to publishing, long-term travel to all-in entrepreneurship. He also speaks and teaches workshops internationally, generally on work/lifestyle-balance, the business of being a creative person, branding, modern publishing, and how to do what you love for for a living.

At 24, Colin was running a successful branding studio in Los Angeles and living the 'American Dream,' when he decided that dream wasn't all it was cracked up to be. After scaling down his business and getting rid of everything he owned that wouldn't fit into a carry-on bag, he hit the road and began a lifestyle focused on new experiences and novel perspectives. For over four years, he's moved to a new country every four months based on the votes of his readers.

Colin has been featured in an interviewed by hundreds of TV shows, magazines, newspapers, podcasts, blogs, and other media around the world. He's written both fiction and nonfiction bestsellers, and is probably one of the biggest book geeks you'll ever meet.

I'm known as a connector/networker and have read a lot of books on the subject but often feel dissatisfied. I don't work in a corporate environment, nor do I want to connect in a way that makes me feel uncomfortable.

Colin focuses on friendships first and being valuable. It's not gor everyone, but it's a way of networking that will resonate with most people. It pretty much describes my own approach - something I've been struggling to articulate.

He also covers the very real issues you will face when you combine work and friendship, such as sex and excessive drinking. This is the type of advice that can really help your career in the long term, and it's available for less then $1.

Loved it - brilliant work!

Basically, a guide to the author's unconventional/modern/gen Y view on networking, business, and related topics.

There was some interesting points, and I think it's worth the 99 cents for the author's energetic perspective on life and business alone. I found myself wondering at a few stages whether it was worth the time to read it, though... at times it all just came across a bit self congratulatory, repetitive, and/or obvious. Some savage editing might have condensed the valuable points and made the whole thing a bit more worthwhile.

I think that young people really interested in business, self promotion and personal branding will find this a moderately entertaining and worthwhile read.

This book was written from an extrovert`s perspective, and for extroverts. As an introverted person, I feel uneasy with making best friends with people that I just met, or even with inviting some one for coffee. Therefore, most of the advice in this book does not apply to myself.

Like all the endorsing stories about people from all different areas of life and their way of networking.
I like how it tries to discern real useful networking from the "corporate" soulless networking that I've always hated that is only small necessary talk just to convince people to take your business cards and then annoy them with phone calls.

The book's strong points lie in its ability to encourage and motivate a reader to become more active in their networking as well as its ability to clearly define a plan of action. The author's cadence and word choice really make the reader feel as if these themes are acheivable. This point is also boosted by the short inserts that contain real life examples from the author's friends and associates.

The book falls short in the way of giving you sample talking points or effective opening remarks. The absence of such suggestions give the feeling that the author doesn't understand that not everyone innately knows how to W-O-O. In that regard Dale Carnegie's books, though old, would present a nice complement to this reading.

Fresh! Great out of the box and real advice on how to network right. Honest. Recommended for people who need to get their butts into gear like me, got me moving fast and in the right direction (I quit my job yesterday morning and I already know now where I am going, who I am meeting and how greatly because of this short and fun book). This book will get you asking yourself some cool questions about who you really are in this world and what you came to offer to others and how. The author is a young brilliant and generous mind, I emailed him and he responded within hours, cool dude. Get it and don't look back!

I first bought this networking guide in its PDF form. Since I liked it soo much, I had to buy it for my Kindle as well.
And I still luv every minute of it - Colin's a tight connector with a huge network, and his guide is a VAULT full of
genuine tips and tricks.

It's well-designed, super-practical and entertaining like hell.
Learning about creating your network has never been so much fun !
The idea to feature dozens of networking-savvy people is a smart move as well - the featured peeps range
from over-the-top extroverts to shy introverts - so any personality type is covered here.

Highly recommend this to anyone wanting to build a powerful network the genuine way !

Colin has an ability to recognize the truth about some of life's more challenging situations, aka meeting people when you feel awkward about it; and as a result he is able to write with conviction. His authoritative assesments of all the querky scenarios involved with networking in our ever growing social and global community provide valuable tools for anyone who's trying to navigate the new road rules of doing business with friends as well as just plain making meaningful relationships out of what could have been just a handshake. The fact that he's also included some great stories from like-minded entreprenuers make this a very interesting [and quick] great read.
