Jim Randel's THE SKINNY ON "Networking"

  • Nov 13, 2010
Networking is not one of the easiest things for me... or so I thought. After reading THE SKINNY ON Networking by Jim Randel I thought about that networking is something I do everyday without even thinking about it. It doesn't have to be an official "networking" event for you to network. It can be meeting people at a public place and where the conversation leads. It can also be the way you utilize the internet and social networking sites.

We always are talking, but the book helps you to see ways that you can make those conversations more productive for you personally and professionally.

Once again THE SKINNY ON has provided a service through its books that can have long-lasting results. Make sure to add this one to your reading list and your reference it often.

About this book


"It's my angry belief that most self-help and education book writers get paid by the word. Three and four hundred page books that could have been done better in 50 pages. Not so with "The Skinny On" series. These books kick rears and take names. Using entertaining writing, stick figure drawings and a comic book style layout, they use simple stories to quickly convey valuable information. Highly recommended. Author Jim Randel has created one of the best, most interesting series I've seen in a very long time." --Mercury News. The Silicon Valley Newspaper

"Who would have thought a book with stick-people illustrations could be so weighty? This one caught me off guard - tons of substance in a fun-filled one-hour read. I am very happy that someone persuaded me to read this book!" --Mike Goss, Managing Director, Bain Capital
