Very Different than Never Eat Alone

This is a totally different book than Never Eat Alone. If you loved that one, you won't necessarily like this one and vice versa. I have to say I lucked into this book because Keith had become a networking guru after writing Never Eat Alone. I had garnered the success I had to date due to my networking, ability to meet new people, and also build relationships with people whom I previously had none, and an ability to keep in touch with people over time. However, I have felt despite my success and knowing so many people it has been a pretty rare occasion when I could bare my soul and show even my most trusted friends my deepest darkest secrets and fears that have been holding me back from achieving my goals and achieving my goals faster. The concepts in Keith's newest book are not rocket science...especially the 4 mindsets: candor, vulnerability, generosity, and accountability. But, after Keith breaks each concept down in detail it is amazing how rarely we practice all 4 openly and honestly with even our closest friends or advisors. So, besides sharing concepts, Keith gives practical advice on: *Goal Setting *Diagnosing Your Weaknesses *How to start conversations that will create the safe environment for such relationships *What to do to determine if someone is a potential lifeline for you *How to start a support group *How to run a support group (in detail) *How to bring these into the workplace Also, Keith practices what he preaches and bares his own soul in this book demonstrating the vulnerability. Without which it would have been difficult for me to share many of the fears and insecurities that I've needed to address but have been too afraid to share for fear of coming off as weak. Also, I've realized that due to this I also need help from my "lifelines" to hold me accountable since I am trying to tackle so many ambitious goals in my life. I have bought 3 copies for friends and I have already started having deeper relationships after practicing many of the concepts in this book

Back Support

I usually hate this kind of book. By page 20, the blinding insight is delivered and then the next 200 pages just repeat it. Not here. Keith draws you in quickly but then keeps deepening his points. By page 205, I was more absorbed than I was at page 20. (The profiles of various types of people whose personal glass ceilings get in their way (section 3) was priceless. I re-read it three times, then tried fitting everyone I know into one or more of them.) Keith uses an interesting device to keep the reader engaged: he makes you complicit in his own mentoring or "lifeline" process, as he calls it. Far from lecturing, he is often, and very appealingly, an imperfect student of his own insights. Severals times I found myself saying "Keith, you are doing it again...". Just as his treasured lifeline people must do. This quirk really makes his point and lets the reader immediately relate to the value of what he suggests. I read this book at an interesting time: finding myself at a personal plateau with no obvious mentors and, as well, being asked to mentor someone whom I had no clue how to help. This book was very provocative for me on both fronts.

Great book

Great book! Very inciteful and filled with practical knowlede, most of which you can put into use immediately. Who's Got Your Back changed the way I look at teams. Our culture has always romaticized the notion of the sole individual against the world. Keith shows how and why we don't have to go it alone, in fact it's much smarter if you don't.

Discover How to Create Relationships That Transform You

In "who's got your back" Keith Ferrazzi hits a nerve- even the most successful people in business have to admit - we have friends and family who love us but they don't understand our business - and we have business relationships that we often keep at arm's length. Keith provides an alternative - opening up and creating "instant intimacy." You may first recoil at the notion, but read on. He makes a powerful point - that when we open up, and ask people we trust and respect for candor and clarity, we win. If we don't we'll miss out on the opportunity to grow and achieve a far greater level of success. As an executive coach I will recommend this to clients and friends. A compelling read.

Valuable Perspective and Practical Techniques

In his latest work Kieth builds on the concepts of Never Eat Alone and provides guidance on nurturing authenticity into intimacy. Leveraging concepts Napoleon Hill's Mastermind Group, Ferrazzi goes several steps further to provide methods for creating deep relationships in an increasingly shallow society. Who's Got Your Back is an excellent read for any entrepreneur looking to work with and through others for mutual success.
