Keith’s second book about good networking, this one focuses on forming a few very deep relationships of people who will tell you the truth even when it’s difficult and who will help you when you need it.
Of course, the same goes for them — you’ve got to be prepared to tell them the truth and help them. Keith cites studies showing that Americans and other busy Westerners have fewer and fewer close friends in this atomistic age. His is a single-handed crusade to reverse that decline, and more pow Keith’s second book about good networking, this one focuses on forming a few very deep relationships of people who will tell you the truth even when it’s difficult and who will help you when you need it.
His is a single-handed crusade to reverse that decline, and more power to him. May 21, Douglas rated it really liked it Shelves: Keith’s first book was much better.
I am already really open, blunt and vulnerable with a number of people, so i found that a lot of what Keith was recommending, I already was doing. It is great advice. I particularly like how life is about giving. Its true and something I’ve only recently discovered. I like the attitude that Ferrazzi exudes in his books.
He seems very forthcoming and earnest. He seems to really want to help. I thought his first book, “Never Eat Alone”, was an excellent book on networking. This book is a different take on networking.

It is more of a book about teams and groups, especially groups of personal advisers. He really, really likes this idea. I wasn’t as sold on it, given that I’m not a high level executive. His examples start off relate-able, like Weight Watchers an I like the attitude that Ferrazzi exudes in his books.
His examples start off relate-able, like Weight Watchers and AA. But then he goes high level, talking about Young Presidents Organization, group sales, and the like, about halfway through. This was a bit beyond what I need and what I’m willing to do. It was also obvious, since he stated it time and again, that his company was willing to help companies create individual relationships. I usually don’t appreciate books that are long marketing rerrazzi, but again, he had the right attitude, he offered some generally useful advice, and he kept pointing out free stuff on his web site that sounded like it might be of use.
Nov 29, Hiep Nguyen rated it liked it. Sep 09, Cara marked it as to-read Shelves: Adored this at first; now I’m stuck. I don’t want to read it any more, probably because the idea of trying to establish these relationships seems exhausting and difficult now, whereas at first it seemed like the magical solution to all of my problems.
Really no risk here. Abck we hear the truth, at least we can work on it and do better. Steps to get more keiyh in your life: What do you aho May 04, Adam Jacobson rated it liked it. I got this free at an EO sho organization conference in DC.
Got to hear the guy speak also better known for the bestseller never eat alone which I think I’ll buy. The idea is provocative – who do you have who really pushes you to improve?
My answer is not enough people. There’s a fefrazzi whole in the mi I got this free at an EO entrepreneur’s organization conference in DC. There’s a gaping whole in the middle of the book. In both his public presentation and in his book, he stresses the importance of being vulnerable and relationships. Yet for all his stories about his family and his famous friends for a guy who says he’s ksith on not bragging there’s an awful lot of name dropping in the bookthere’s no indication that the man has ever had a significant other and certainly no sense of children.
Which is a personal choice. But keitth it’s a sign of our culture where a guy talking about vulnerability and relationships doesn’t have woh key ones of his own. I do want to read his other book – Never Eat Alone. Perhaps because I start from a place which says being able to be alone with ones thoughts occasionally is the key to remaining balanced.

This is a solid book, yet it is difficult not to compare it to Never Eat Alone: The most interesting part of the book are the Four Mindsets to build what Ferrazzi describes as “lifeline relationships”. They are vulnerability, candor, generosity, and accountability. He provides tips on how to build each mindset and then create groups that reinforce them among members.
If you are an entrepreneur or business owner, y This is a solid book, yet it is difficult not to compare it to Never Eat Alone: If you are an entrepreneur or business owner, you will get a lot more out of this book. Many of the discussions in the book are focused on these roles.
Since I am neither, I found them somewhat interesting yet not terribly relevant. Overall, pick this up if you are a big fan of Never Eat Alone or run your own business. Jul 26, Joseph Serwach rated it it was ok. His first book, “Never Eat Lunch Alone,” was a classic. This starts out as strong or stronger and some important points and revealing candior — was thinking of making my kids read it – then unfortunately it drifts off into 10 tips kind of stuff that seems to be promoting his business.
The coda is good, the beginning is strong. Jul 05, Stephanie rated it liked it. I am only reading this one because I have to listen to Keith speach, plus work gave me the book for free. So far its not the type of self help book I read but it’s interesting.
I finished the book and it was interesting and motivating but really not my type of book. Jul 07, Jeremy rated it really liked it.
Who’s Got Your Back
I found the book to give good advice on picking your team of advisers. Building a team of people to push you through to the next level is an important aspect of career development.
My team is a mix of vot, family, and co-workers. Jul 13, Brian rated it it was amazing Shelves: Well thought out and with lots of clear, actionable advice. A great sequel to Ferrazzi’s first book. Jun 30, Peter rated it it was ok.
His first book was better. Oct 15, Derek Iannelli-Smith rated it it was amazing. Another great book by Keith. As it is somewhat dated, many of the “resources” web related stuff are not aligned or even in existence anymore.
