Networking for People Who Hate Networking

Networking for People Who Hate Networking: A Field Guide for Introverts, the Overwhelmed, and the Underconnected

Devorah Zack
San Francisco: Berrett-Koehler Publishers, 2010

Shattering stereotypes about people who hate networking (most of us), and myths about networking (just a lot of small talk, big numbers, and constant contact), the book shows how the very traits that make people networking-averse can be used very effectively in a full range of career and professional development situations. Introversion and shyness can be strengths, if you know how to use them.
