Never Eat Alone is a rare, detailed glimpse into how those with no special access can connect to those they want to meet. For many people who are good at connecting, this activity becomes a way of life. It's a profession and a hobby. As such, connecting can become all consuming. Many will find that aspect of Mr. Ferrazzi's story to be unattractive. But I found his candor in this regard to be refreshing.

If you step back from his enthusiasm for connecting, the mental attitudes and processes he describes are just what everyone needs to use who wants to be better connected and accomplish more.

All of us know more than any one of us. If you take two equally talented young people in any field, the one who is better at connecting will live a more successful life than one who tries to go at everything as a lone ranger.

I have known dozens of master connectors. They all do some variation of what Mr. Ferrazzi describes in this book. Here is how I would distill those lessons:

1. Decide who you want to meet to further your objective of accomplishing more.

2. Learn more about the person.

3. Find what you can do to help that person in an area where they care.

4. Develop a strategy to meet briefly face to face.

5. Share what you want to do to help when you meet.

6. Stay in touch with more ways to help.

7. Attend events where other master connectors attend and link into fields which are not naturally yours by becoming acquainted with these master connectors.

8. Study those who are very good at this.

If you keep in mind the sheer pleasure of making a difference as you do this, you'll soon be a superb connector. I recommend undertaking this task on behalf of something you are passionate about such as a charity you support.

One of the best parts of this book is that Mr. Ferrazzi is generous in sharing his mistakes. The world doesn't end for you as a connecting queen or king if you offend a poo-bah. You just pick yourself up and do better next time.

I liked his humility about his limitations in other fields. Peter Drucker would have approved of Mr. Ferrazzi's decision to work on what he has a talent and love for, connecting, rather than try to become more competent at things that are difficult and unpleasant for him . . . like quantitative analysis. The story about how he got his start at Deloitte is worth the price of the book.

Another strength of the book can be found in the excellent description of why people find President Clinton to be so compelling in person.

Skip books about networking and relationship building. Read Never Eat Alone instead!

Vor dem Kauf von "Never eat alone" war ich ein wenig skeptisch, ob es sich hierbei um eines dieser oberflächlichen Büchern mit ein paar einfachen Patentrezepten handeln würde, nach deren Anwendung man, Simsalabim, zum Meister-Netzwerker würde. Ich wurde, was das angeht, angenehm überrascht.
Zunächst gefällt mir an Keith Ferrazzis Buch dessen angenehme Einstellung, beim Networken zunächst mal nicht daran zu denken, was das Gegenüber für einen selbst tun kann, sondern damit zu beginnen, womit man selbst dem Gegenüber helfen kann.
Darüber hinaus sind seine mit Beispielen belegten Anregungen leicht nachvollziehbar und im Grunde für jedermann anwendbar. Was bei der Lektüre jedoch auch unmißverständlich klar wird, ist dass Networking richtig harte Arbeit ist. Dies verleiht dem Buch aus meiner Sicht einen deutlichen Mehrwert im Vergleich zu vielen Büchern, die nur allgemeines Blabla verbreiten. Ebenso wie die Tatsache, dass Ferrazzi deutlich darauf hinweist, dass alle Networking Werkzeuge ohne ein gewisses Mindestmaß an Substanz dahinter letztendlich nicht viel wert sind.
Insgesamt also ein gutes Buch, welches zum Nachdenken anregt. Das einzige, was mich persönlich ein wenig gestört hat, waren die recht häufigen Verweise auf die "New Economy". Aber das ist bei Ferrazzis Branchenhintergrund vermutlich nicht zu vermeiden.

Author Keith Ferrazzi is a master networker who claims that his Palm Pilot holds the names of 5,000 people who will take his phone calls. That’s a powerful claim. Starting as a self-made man of humble origins, Ferrazzi developed his social network by helping people and by developing and mastering the techniques for networking. Here, he shares his methods. His light, engaging and entertaining story will motivate those who want to enhance their social and business friendships. The author advocates generosity as the key to success. That’s a radical business concept, but he claims it works. It’s certainly worth a try. We recommend this book to people who want to be more social, make friends and expand their business connections. It should also prove invaluable for those who are sick of sitting at home on Saturday nights.

endless name-dropping and heroic self-congratulatory stories about projects with disputable outcome (where are those data discs integrated into drink-containers anyway?) - i could not and did not finish this book for poor writing style. i give it the benefit of the doubt though (2 points instead of none).

Was soll ich sagen. Das ganze Buch klingt nach einem leicht zu durchschauenden Egomanen, der versucht einer Bande von asozialen Losern gegen Entgelt zu erklären, wie man richtig Klinken putzt. Taugt nicht mal als Lektüre zum drunter einschlafen...

Dieses Buch gehört aus meiner Sicht zur Pflichtlektüre für alle, die beruflich voran kommen möchten. Ich gehe einen Schritt weiter und behaupte, mit den Anregungen aus dem Buch könnte das Privatleben auch befriedigender sein.

Ja, es geht um eine Lebenseinstellung und darum, wie man Beziehungen pflegt. Wir haben alle schon mal gehört, dass Beziehungen, Netzwerke sehr wichtig für den beruflichen Erfolg sind. Jeder stellt sich aber etwas Anderes darunter vor, wie es in der Praxis aussehen könnte. Für manche ist Netzwerken, Leute zu finden, die einem weiterhelfen. Für andere ist es einfach die Anzahl der Kontakte über Xing und Co. In diesem Buch geht es um qualitative Beziehungen, die mit Liebe gepflegt werden. Es geht nicht darum, etwas zu bekommen, was man haben möchte, schreibt Ferrazzi. Es geht darum, etwas zu bekommen, was man haben möchte und dafür zu sorgen, dass auch die Menschen, die einem wichtig sind, etwas bekommen, was sie möchten. Klingt das kompliziert? Nein, zeitintensiv ist es. Es scheint sich aber zu lohnen, wie man an Ferrazzis Beispiel feststellen kann.

Er kommt selbst aus einfachen Verhältnissen- seine Mutter war Putzfrau, sein Vater Stahlarbeiter in einer kleinen Stadt in den USA. Seinen Universitätsabschluss macht Ferrazzi an der Eliteuniversität Yale. Einen Harvard MBA hat er selbstverständlich auch. Beruflich zählte er schon in seinen Dreißigern zu den Durchstartern mit einem Netzwerk aus Washington bis hin zu Hollywood's VIP-Listen. Es war dann auch kein Wunder, dass sein Netzwerk es ihm ermöglichte, dass er u.a. zum "Global Leader for Tomorrow" auf dem "Davos World Economic Forum" gewählt wurde.

Das Buch könnte auch als eine Karrierebibel verstanden werden. Keith Ferrazzi gibt erstaunliche Einblicke in sein Berufsleben und verrät seine Erfolgsgeheimnisse. Angefangen von der Geisteshaltung, dass die Beziehungen aufgebaut werden sollten, bevor man sie benötigt und dass jeder seine eigene Mission (Leidenschaft, was einem besonders wichtig ist) kennen sollte. Es beinhaltet auch ganz praktische Tipps mit anschaulichen Beispielen- z. B. wie man mit den sogenannten "Gatekeepers" umgehen sollte, um an die Leute zu kommen, die man erreichen möchte.
Egal ob man Berufsanfänger oder gestandene Führungskraft ist, wird jeder von diesem Buch etwas lernen können.

‘Never Eat Alone’ written by Keith Ferrazzi back in 2005 is one the business books that somehow survived the test of time because what the author was talking it’s still valid today in business only by yourself, without the people that surrounds and supports you, and what could be a better place for socialization than the plates during lunch, summer, autumn…

The edition released this year is not only way for publisher to get some more money, but actually it comes with updated content both in content and scope, therefore as result the book is now 400 pages long compared to the original 300 pages.

In the very beginning author presents two crucial things – networking became one of the common used words these years, seen as inherently human pursuit that drive human development and collaborative economy; and second, he presents a formula of success in life as combination of the people you meet in your life and the things you do together.

The author in introduction chapter emphasizes the main goals of his book such as creation of fulfilling, authentic, effective networking strategy, building and aligning social capital in order to achieve ambitions goals, combine strategy and serendipity to keep in constant contact wide a wide network of people, and others.

Book is divided into five main chapters, listed in order: The mind-set, The skill set, Turning connections into compatriots. Connecting in the digital age and Trading Up and giving back, that each speak about the particular aspect of becoming successful maintaining the relationships with people in your vicinity.

Overall, the book provided the many details which together make a decent guide of own network improvements and personal soft skill virtue of relationship building.

I read the second bok (Who has got your back) and wanted to read hist first one.

I was highly disappointed. The book is basically a story how great Mr Ferrazzi has mastered his life. Yes, there are some hoints what you can do, but basically he does a self-praise on 300 pages.
