I looked for reasons to give this more than two stars, but the truth is that the title of the book is misleading. I was very disappointed reading this, but I stayed with it because I decided I'd share my thoughts and hopefully save some folks some money, or at least have them think twice before purchasing. Now, while it's true that there are some good stories in here, that's just what this book is.
It's a book of stories - stories about how relationships served a purpose in certain instances or in certain peoples' lives. The first four or five stories are ok. There's some good information that you could use, although nothing at all that you could not find with a general five-minute internet search. Get to the sixth law - "Stretch yourself by building relationships with people quite different than you. Seriously, you should build relationships by building different relationships?
It goes down-hill from here Chapter seven - "Serious engagement needs a relationship" - again - not what this book is said to contain on the cover. And there are some theses put forth that require some missing research.

- A caccia di fantasmi (Italian Edition)!
But my main gripe here is that it doesn't help build relationships. It's way into outer space - nothing granular at all! The material in chapter 16 is gold - Vulnerability. But it's only a couple of pages and again, nothing at all approaching the granularity of a quality book from which you can learn anything of value. The most offensive material, in that it's not what I paid to read, is the material in chapter You're basically told a story about how you need to have a few serious followers instead of lots of shallow relationships.
This is again another example of false advertisement on the cover. If you have an afternoon and you want to read some decent stories, by all means, spend your money on this book.
Or better yet, go read stories for free on the internet. However, I assume you're reading this review because you want to improve your relationship building skills.uchsculrothscyc.tk/hoz-de-pelegrina.php

Trust me, this is not a good book for doing so. Steven Covey's material is much more suitable, granular, and apropos of good relationship building. This book contains the right combination of specific, actionable advice to help expand your network and inspiration to help you persist through the inevitable hiccups. Each chapter introduces a concept, demonstrates it with a story, then ends with suggestions for application.
The chapters themselves can each be read in a few minutes. However, the brevity of the text doesn't take away from its value. Personally, I appreciated the lack of fluff.

Each story in the chapters is drawn from the authors' wealth of experience. Jerold Panas, in particular, has amazing stories to tell from his decades of experience with some of the top philanthropists in the world. Some of the tales were quite moving - stand outs were a description of one of the author's fathers, and another that described the confrontation between a wealthy business owner and a parking lot stalker late at night in a crime-ridden section of town. This is a book I'll read again and recommend to my friends.
