Wenda I totally agree....


message 2: by Alex (new)

Alex Makarov Exactly! 5 page essay would be more useful and without this huge time loss


message 3: by Alicia (new)

Alicia Spot on review!


message 4: by Marvin (new)

Marvin Spent way to much time on who he knew and who knew him. Can't recover the time wasted from reading on how important he makes himself to be.


message 5: by Nathan (new)

Nathan Bullock This is a perfect summary of how I felt about the book!


message 6: by Chad (new)

Chad Too much bragging that I quickly lost interest in the overall message of the book.


message 7: by John (new)

John Stafford well said, I feel the same!

Asad Khan haha this is exactly what I was thinking while reading it, I opened up goodreads looked up the book and here was your review.
I will still finish it :)

Malaak "I'm not sure how many times it's necessary to congratulate yourself in your own book about how great you are"


message 11: by Craig (new)

Craig Kissho couldnt finish it

Elliott Beach The contents could not be summarized just as effectively as a 5 page essay, because it would lack the colossal weight of evidence Ferrazi amasses in favor of connecting and mentoring vigorously.

Pol Thank you for your honest review. I was about to read it but you saved me precious time ;)

I didn't mean a literal 5 page essay would be wholly sufficient, but I still stand by my review that anything useful was overshadowed by him tooting his own horn and vastly overstating the importance of a large network. Mentors are important and connecting is important but so is talent, hard work, and experience among others. The entire book comes off as incredibly ingenuine.

Nickelaos Totally agree. This book could be a small article, not more.

Steven Dietrich I haven't read it, but there is one review to the positive that the book amounts to more than negatives. What about the 'colossal weight of evidence' Ferrazzi provides for connecting and mentoring? Does that make this book desirable or not?
