Since many of you are just finishing up with ETS and heading to SBL, I thought I’d mention a book with many good suggestions about how to make the most of interactions with the people you meet at a conference and elsewhere. The book I’m referring to is Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazzi. In a nutshell, the premise of the book is that personal and professional success in life is about relationships. Keith offers great practical advice about how to build and maintain those relationships that will give you the opportunity to help others be successful and in turn have others contribute to your success. This is a must read for anybody who has ever sat by the sidelines wondering what the magic is that allows so many others to strike up a conversation and become fast friends with a complete stranger. At times his suggestions may seem a bit too deliberate or premeditated, but if you often don’t have the foggiest clue where to start, this book will give you some very practical ways to begin making the most of your social interactions. My good friend Peter Edstrom offers a more in-depth review of Keith’s book here: LINK. You may also want to consider Keith’s newest book, Who’s Got Your Back.
