I think Ross Walker is a great guy and has indeed accomplished a lot and I enjoyed reading about his career path. Nevertheless, I feel this book is really short (amazon says it is 41 pages long, and in the kindle it definitely felt like a quick read). It would have been a great book had it been complemented at the end by Pfeffer's own comments(though it is him narrating I believe, but in a very descriptive/informative style) and then a "how to do it yourself" guide.
At the end there are a few questions that Walker himself has answered , but some questions did not help me. At the beginning of the book you get the impression that Walker is going to teach you what to do, but he doesn't. His story is quite detailed, and it does explain what he did and who he reached out to, and the book contains many people's opinion on Walker's path and self-conduct throughout the book.
I have given this a 3-star rating because I had high expectations of this book. This is NOT like Jeffrey Pfeffer's previous books like "Power". It is a good read, but I think it is quite overpriced. I feel disappointed since it is too short, and definitely feel that I spent more money than I should have. Nevertheless, if you can easily afford it, you might want to take a chance and read it. It is a good story, it is good information, but it does not live up to my expectations and is indeed overpriced.
Therefore I wouldn't recommend it to someone wanting to learn more about networking. I am not aware of other good networking books, as most seem to have some negative reviews. If you do want to learn more about organizations and power perhaps, Jeffrey Pfeffer's book "Power" and Robert Greene's "48 Laws of Power" are both outstanding.
