A primer on the social network LinkedIn and an introduction to Windmill Networking.

“Want to know how business really works in LaLa Land? Read this book”
–Liz Smith, wowOwow.com
“LaPorte’s lenghty narrative is the definitive history of the studio, an achievement of dispassionate reporting in the genre of corporate decline-and-fall…Hollywood, with its penchant for sunny publicity and an obsession for secrecy, is a notoriously difficult business in which to uncover the truth…Most reporters are not up to the task. LaPorte is… The Men Who Would Be King will be required reading for anyone interested in the story of DreamWorks.”
“A thrilling ride… The bumbling and infighting are just too good, and sad, to resist… We’re privy to some serious dirt. LaPorte has clearly done her homework… The sheer scope and depth of The Men Who Would Be King impresses. No hissy fit escapes LaPorte’s gaze. Every time Geffen has a meltdown or A-list stars like Russell Crowe throw trantrums, LaPorte is there to capture it.”
The cinematic saga of DreamWorks where three Hollywood legends — alternately friends and rivals, brilliant and savage – created a studio which proved that in Hollywood business is always a grand performance.

This is a great book about networking. Networking is not thought in Business Schools and this book fills a void in this area. It was $8.59 before. This represents a saving of more than 20%.
An extraordinary book! It can take you and your business to a whole new level of success. –Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul
In many ways, success at networking is the uncommon application of common knowledge. Most people understand that networking is important to their success—they just lack a step-by-step process to get the results they want. Almost no one really implements a comprehensive methodology that will build a business through networking. Thus, the need to network is “common knowledge,” and the development of the methodology required to be successful at it is the “uncommon application.”
By reading this book, you will experience the true essence and meaning of networking. The 29% Solution gives you the answers to two conflicting questions that a business owner or salesperson faces every day: How can I tend to my existing clients while at the same time network for new business? and, Should I place higher value on my current clients or on new clients?
