So since summer is here, the entire graduate school business environment is on a sort of pause. This pause has allowed me to utilize my time and do something I've been procrastinating on for quiet a while, reading business related books.
Perhaps one of the best books I have read so far is, Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazzi. This book is an eye-opener for anybody and everybody. Not only is it a book about how to properly network, and the right way to go about it, taken out of context it can be interpreted as a step by step guide to properly building your network.
Furthermore, this book is motivational. Be warned, after you finish reading it (even if its at 2 am) you will want to get online and start updating your address book and managing your contacts.
