As for the book, the first several chapters are pretty much a sales pitch for importance of social capital and networking, which is odd since I've already bought the book. I was becoming concerned the book was a bunch of fluff but later chapters are a goldmind (see below). So I think the point of the early chapters is that change requires a lot of motivation. The author includes several good motivation techniques. For more, check out another book I like called "This year I will".
Social Wealth is a book full of excellent, actionable, information. Most of it flew by me listening to the audio. It was when I also bought the Kindle version that the extent of the information became apparent. (I still recommend audio fo the forst read through--especially the early motivation chapters). In Kindle, I have highlighted nearly every line of some chapters and turned them into Kindle flashcards to memorize.
Although some of his advice is common sense that we have heard for years, it often advice that we have either ignored or "think" we have mastered. All of us could probably use a refresher course and Jason provides a refreshing one along with new ideas we might not have considered before. This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to improve the quality of their life in any area.
I know how to have conversations with people, which this book heavily discusses. I was more interested in learning how to approach women for friendships, and realize I know what to do, just have to do it (i.e. what most of us all know on some level prior to reading these self-help books, we just want a boost of motivation). I have friends who are social influencers and invite me to hang out with their friends. I will be joining a team related to my hobbies. I also have no issue in networking with men and women of all ages.
It's a matter of doing, really.
But if you need help with conversation points, this is a good book. Wanting to figure out how to start conversations, YOU KNOW HOW, and this book doesn't cover it. It has some good point about networking for business and staying in touch, etc. The first half of the book also has a lot of motivational fluff which seemed wasteful.
What Carnegie didn't see is what Treu focuses on. This book, accordingly, has more depth. It's not only about meeting new friends and expanding your social network, it's also about a comprehensive philosophy and modus operandi on how to meet people easily - with a genuine intent, warmth, humor, and candor. As such, it's not really a self-help book per se. It's more about an over-arching philosophy that insists upon 'doing the outer work', as Treu puts it. He makes it very clear that if you're going to get anything out of this book, you need to put the work in. He thoroughly elucidates how to go about it, all you need is the willingness to follow through and do the work.
Never before in human history has humanity been so utterly awkward and distant when it comes to human interaction. This is a timely book that can put you leaps and bounds beyond the competition when it comes to social success in business, relationships, romance, friendships - but it's also about transcending a competitive spirit when it comes right down to the immediacy of a spontaneous, unique human interaction. Great stuff, 5 stars, highly recommended.
