🎨 Impressions

I read "Never Eat Alone" by Keith Ferrazzi pretty quickly because it's a great combination of storytelling and practical tips on networking and building relationships.

Unlike other books on networking, this one didnt feel like it was filled with sales mumbo jumbo or that I needed to act like a clown to attract the right people. Instead, Ferrazzi presents the idea of building relationships as a win-win situation for everyone involved.

One of the things I liked the most about this book was authors take on the importance of genuine relationships, rather than just collecting contacts. He stresses the importance of giving back and being a valuable resource to those in your network, rather than just expecting something in return. This mindset shift can lead to more authentic and meaningful connections.

I really enjoyed reading this book. There were no "aha" moments, but it was a great reminder of the ideas behind building a long-lasting professional network. Overall, it was a refreshing take on networking and I'd recommend it to anyone looking to improve their connections in the business world.

How I Discovered It

I came across "Never Eat Alone" by Keith Ferrazzi while watching a book review video on YouTube. The title caught my attention and I was initially intrigued by the thought that it might be about psychology and negotiations. But when I learned that it was actually about networking, I was a bit skeptical. However, the review video emphasized that this book is different from other books on networking and that the author, Keith Ferrazzi, is a true expert on the subject.

Despite my initial doubts, I decided to give it a chance and I am glad I did. The book exceeded my expectations and I have no regrets about reading it. It provides a unique perspective on networking and building relationships, and it's not just a typical book about networking.

Who Should Read It?

I can recommend "Never Eat Alone" by Keith Ferrazzi to anyone who is nearing the end of their university studies. As someone who has been working in the digital/IT industry for over 8 years, I found that many of the tips and concepts presented in the book were familiar to me. However, if I had read this book around 6-7 years ago, it would have greatly expanded my understanding and approach to building beneficial and long-lasting relationships. It is a great guide for anyone who's just starting out in their professional journey.
