The bestselling business classic on the power of relationships, updated with in-depth advice for making connections in the digital world
’Don’t walk . . . RUN to your closest bookstore. The most extraordinary and valuable book I’ve come across in a long, long time’ Tom Peters
Do you want to get ahead in life? Climb the ladder to success?
Master networker Keith Ferrazzi says the secret is in reaching out to others. As he discovered early in life, what distinguishes highly successful people is the way they use the power of relationships – so that everyone wins.
Never Eat Alone: Expanded and Updated lays out the steps and mindset Ferrazzi uses to connect with thousands of colleagues, friends, and associates: people he has helped and who have helped him. This form of connecting to the world is based on generosity; Ferrazzi distinguishes genuine relationship-building from crude glad-handing.
These practical, proven principles include: don’t keep score (make sure other people get what they want, too); ’ping’ constantly (reach out to your contacts all the time – not just when you need something); never eat alone (’invisibility’ is a fate worse than failure); and become the 'king of content’ (use social media to make meaningful connections).
In this classic, global bestseller you’ll discover the timeless strategies used by the world’s most connected people, from Bill Clinton to the Dalai Lama. And you’ll learn how to transform your own network, career and life.
