This is a fabulous book with tremendous examples. Ivan Misner has written several books from his experience founding BNI, and I think this is his best. If you are BNI, this book is essential.

But to get the most out of this book, you really need to do the worksheets that a part of it. Unfortunately, there are no Word or Excel versions of these forms to make it easier. Which is why I probably never finished doing the worksheets.

This guy is supposedly really good - I just found it hard to read. There are lots of other great books out there that can teach you how to do the same stuff - faster and more efficient.

It is a great read, though. Enjoy.

Great way to systematize your networking skills. This method will keep everything in focus and help develop relationships better than on the fly.
