Ferrazzi is a master at networking and building relationships. His book is very practical and concise, explaining to the reader methods for improving current professional and social situations. It was full of insights and useful tips that one could surely pick up and put to use...The second book was recommended by my boss. Another marvelous read. I think what I liked best about the book was it was focused on solving the hard to describe problems of organizing your thoughts, how to change the way you think to match the problem, and even how to manage your time / interruptions to get these things done. I have already started using some of his ideas by starting to use a personal/private wiki to organize my thoughts...I love the Pragmatic Bookshelf series.
