Some of my friends call it “The Orange Bible”. My children call it “that book you always bang on about”. I call it the best book you will ever read!
Don’t get me wrong – I love my classics: Jane Austen, Shakespeare, the Brontes, and so on, but this book will change the way you see all your relationships. And if you don’t, you will miss the opportunity to build your connections in a way that ensures your future.
It is called “Never Eat Alone”, by the genius Keith Ferrazzi.
His argument is that every single person you meet, in whatever context, is a potentially useful and valuable link, to be treasured and “fed” with kindness and generosity.
Eventually, according to Ferrazzi, and absolutely in my experience, this kindness and generosity will come back to you, but not necessarily in the quantities or directions you expect…
I will say no more, as you need to read it. BUT, look out for more book recommendations in upcoming issues of BecomingGlobal monthly. If you want to make sure you don’t miss out on other priceless advice, please sign up here.
