Entrepreneur Gale goes beyond the male-female divide to describe how networks transform lives—but only if the individual is ready and available. Attitude comes first. As with most do-it-yourself-change tomes, an assessment begins the process (identifying barriers and goals), followed by the creation of one’s mission statement, or what Gale calls the funnel test, which means defining three critical focuses. In this era it is no surprise that values become her next step: that is, finding and connecting and learning from friends, family, and communities who share similar outlooks and objectives. Creativity, her third and final phase, is realized through storytelling and expertise. Exercises that make these phases more tangible, from a time-waste audit to a list of barriers, are featured in each chapter, as are anecdotes of individuals who have “broken through.” A very New Age and complicated guide to establishing your best self. --Barbara Jacobs

The core premise/promise of this book is that each person has a set of relationships that are of great value on many fronts, from the intimate to the professional; what is more, each of these relationships has the ability to have a profound trajectory, punctuated both by active "doing" but also by serendipity.
Porter discusses the notion of "give, give, get" in which relationships are not about transaction but upon heaping generosity on others.
While what I've written might appear mundane, one has only to sit in one business meeting, attend one business conference, or struggle through one business book to know that for most, relationships are means to and end.
This book should be ready by people across professions; anyone who needs a little light to be lit will benefit greatly from Porter's book.
Just be aware that only a third of the book is dedicated specifically to networking tips. The rest of the book is about positioning yourself to the type of person people want to connect to. It is incredibly valuable and should be a must read for anyone about to enter the workforce. It's worth knowing though that the book will require you to think about the 'big picture' in terms of your career.
It is a fantastic resource for your business bookshelf.
