If you do any sort of networking in your job, this book is for you. Lederman, a professional trainer and coach, realized the key to networking is likability and in her 11 Laws, outlines the ways you can ensure you make strong connections. Like all business and self-help books, a lot of the advice seems like common sense, especially to extroverts who are good at networking anyway. However, taken as a whole, the 11 laws can inspire you to be open to every potential new contact. Lederman does a great job supporting her laws with stories from her personal networking successes.

I know several introverts who fear professional conferences because they know they should be doing more networking but just don't know how. I'll definitely be recommending this book to them. It gives you confidence and reminds you that networking reaps wonderful benefits not just for your professional life, but for your personal life too. I'm attending a mixer next week and can't wait to try out some of Lederman's advice.
