Thanks to my participation in the Leaders of Tomorrow mentorship program, I’ve received a free copy of Work the Pond! Use the Power of Positive Networking to Leap Forward in Work and Life. Although it has a long title, the book itself is actually pretty short – about 200 pages including the index and the appendix.
During the holidays, I finally had the chance to read this book. One thing I’ve noticed is that this book is radically different from many books about networking. Now, granted, I haven’t read that many networking books — Who can blame me, though? They’re usually super boring! — but I think I’ve read enough to actually say that Work the Pond! is beyond the typical. Here are 5 reasons why.
