Genre: Self-Help

Wollen Sie im Leben vorankommen? Wollen Sie auf der Karriereleiter empor klettern? Das Geheimnis dafür liegt laut Networking-Guru Keith Ferrazzi darin, sich mit anderen Menschen zusammenzutun. Ferrazzi erkannte schon früh, dass sich sehr erfolgreiche Menschen von der breiten Masse in puncto Networking in einem Punkt unterscheiden: Sie nutzen die Macht von "Vitamin B" so, dass jeder dabei gewinnt. In "Geh nie alleine essen!" zeigt Ferrazzi die Schritte, die er benutzt, um mit den Tausenden von Menschen in seinem Adressbuch in Kontakt zu bleiben. Es sind Kollegen, Freunde und Partner - Menschen, denen er geholfen hat und Menschen, die ihm geholfen haben. Ferrazzis Art des Networkings basiert auf Großzügigkeit - er hilft seinen Freunden, miteinander in Kontakt zu kommen. Er unterscheidet stark zwischen dem echten Aufbau von Beziehungen und dem hektischen Visitenkartentausch, den viele heute als Networking bezeichnen. Schließlich destilliert er sein System in anwendbare und erprobte Prinzipien.
