Money well spent

This book is an excellent tool for meeting and networking with total strangers any place . To me it's better than a seminar and far less money

Helped get me out of my shell.

This is a good book for someone who can act on things. I was shy most of my life and worked hard to earn a degree from a good school only to fear talking to people so I sent back to work in a factory. I did not know how to switch gears and mix in a business setting or others where I did not know people. It really hurt and I was determined to get over this. I found this book over 12 years ago and really took it to heart and figured that I would try to do some of the things the author was talking about and just kept building for there. If you can learn from book and try to act on them within reason when you do not have the answers yourself then this book might help you. I give it to my up and coming staff as part of their development if I think it will help them in social/business setting. While I still have a big shy side no one reallyknows it unless I tell them and I speak on a pretty regualr basis to various business and other groups.

Own That Room ...!

One of the greatest things about reading a book is that you can ask yourself for answers to questions that when you find the answers, your life will be better.This is one of those books. I remember years ago, before the first time that I read this book, I wondered about charismatic people, and how they really do it.This book is the answer. "How to Work the Room," is not just a great title for a book, it is also a great anchor, to guide you to focus upon all the social opportunities in one room, for the entire time that you are there.We all must network, to have others open doors for us, because this goes much further than our trying to condense an entire career into 5 seconds of introduction - it won't work. Here are some wonderful things you might learn:1. You have just been introduced to someone at an event. And the introducer has left you with this personFor some, this can be awkward. But for those who read this book, you might begin by deciding that at the very least, you have in common the person who introduced the 2 of you. So you could say, "How do you know Sally?" This will get a conversation started.2. You are going to a networking function, based upon the recommendation of someone who attends the same type of group, but in another city. And you have some hesitationsA great way to be prepared is to spend a half hour the day before, writing down what you are going to, the purpose of the meeting, the time to be there, how long, and a few other notes. This will put you in a great frame of mind to connect with others there.3. You think that small talk is phony, and you hope nobody will try it on youSmall talk is appropriate for networking meetings. It also prevents you from having to come up with a lot to say. With small talk, you are actually opening the door to find out what others are interested in. Which will help you to keep the topic on them, and away from you. And this will keep you relaxed, not to mention welcomed in their eyes.This book has many hilarious examples that everyone can relate to, and use to practice owning that room.

Fear? What fear?

This book is fantastic! I have been searching and searching for the perfect book to help me when I have to go to a meeting or attend a function where I know NOBODY! I have to deal with the public all the time...and sometimes it isn't easy! In fact, just yesterday, I had to attend an event that required me to chat with four different groups as they came to our facility. I was able to do it without fear, and actually enjoyed it. I just felt better, having some ideas as to what should I do next?I would recommend this book to anyone who hates attending these kinds of events. You can do it.... Susan RoAne writes so simply, that anyone will benefit from her humor and suggestions.

The Ultimate Networking Book

Susan RoAne has done it again. Her latest (and I believe greatest) version of How to Work a Room delivers the nuts and bolts of how to work huge crowd, or small group. Her tips on working the Internet are excellent. This is a must have for your personal and professional growth library.
