Never Eat Alone is the ultimate book on networking recommended as one of the best business books ever. But after first few pages, I was skeptical that this book will turn out to be another broad level guide about networking containing importance of relationships and fearlessness ultimately from which I will come out BORED. I can say instead I have come out wiser, clearer and more creative. The book is FULL of practical and usable tips and tricks which will go a long way in improving one’s connections if implemented. And Keith Ferrazzi knows what he is talking about. He has played the game, mastered the game and reinvented it as well. Whether you are trying to succeed as a businessman, want to be a CEO or even running an NGO, this book is a must read to at least take you in the right direction. It will open your mind towards the vast array of possibilities of how you can go about expanding your network.
So overall I am immensely benefited from reading this book as I plan to continue my struggle to come out of my shell and be comfortable with new people, making good conversations and enjoy in a group other than that of best friends and family. However, I do have these two thoughts in mind: Can drastic changes be made in personality traits and the other one being should I try to address my shortcoming or I should rather strengthen my strengths further.
