Editorial Reviews

Daniel H. Pink
“When it comes to connecting with others, some of us are naturals. But those who aren’t — thank heaven for Susan RoAne . . . If you want to learn how to enter a room and build a network of people you can help and who can help you, read this book.”
Larry Winget
“I read this book 25 years ago and it helped me tremendously. The updated version makes it more relevant and useful than ever . . . I can’t imagine trying to navigate successfully in the business world today without this amazing tool. ”
Dianna Booher
“Walking into a roomful of strangers? Pleasant? Productive? Profitable? Fun? From tradeshow suites to virtual ‘rooms,’ RoAne promises a lot—and delivers even more! There’s no more critical skill in today’s marketplace than becoming the connected communicator. Highly recommended.”

    The 25th Anniversary edition of this book continues to be a classic. Susan RoAne describes straight forward but often underutilized social graces that can be used to increase business and networking opportunities. How to Work a Room provides necessary tools that can be used in all social settings to meet the demands of having conversations in uncomfortable situations. The book gives helpful hints to get through the initial stages of the process. The chapters are laid out in an instructional and informational style with excellent examples and stories to support the thesis. This belongs on everyone's top 10 books to read this year. A must read.
