Very Good

Most of the concepts related are generic networking tips but the strength is McKay's translation of the concepts into practical advice. His use of his own business examples gives the material a greater importance. Listening to the book is like getting advice from a successful uncle. I started networking before I even finished the book and the payoffs were immediate.

One of the best networking books

I have listen to other networking books, but this is the best one yet. Harvey Mackay does an excellent job of describing basic techniques for networking. His examples hit home with me when I think back to situations and how I could have handled it differently.
If there is only one book on networking that you buy, I would suggest "Dig Your Well Before You're Thirsty"

I did not finish the book. There is something terribly wrong with this one... it assumes a narcissistic manipulative way of dealing with people... listening to it makes me feel sick... one thing is dealing with people in a way that makes them feel good about them selves for altruistic reasons to make your company enjoyable for them and to encourage the best in them (for their benefit not yours), the other is to do that in order to gain benefits from them like a f***by parasite... in this book anything goes... condoning someone's immorral and hurtful behaviour as long as you get a benefit out of it is justified according to this author... disgusting... maybe I just misunderstood the whole thing, but this is the way I feel about this book... hope this review may be of benefit to whomever it may concern.
