    Who do you know?

    When this book was first recommended to me via Dave Ramsey on his daily show, I thought to myself "is Bob Beaudine kidding me? I REALLY already know everyone I need to know?" But because I value Dave Ramsey, I decided to read the book. Let me assure you that the title and subtitle of the book is NOT all there is in the book. It's not like the book has a bunch of blank pages. There is a lot more to this than the title. Mr. Beaudine writes a very stimulating book that you need to read if you plan on being successful. It's a quick read so I don't want to hear that you don't have time. If you care about your future, read this book.

    Looking for "Who" in all the wrong places...

    "The Power of Who" puts every "how to" business book on its ear, because this is a LIFE book that works for business. What a meaningful read.

    Great Book!

    Bob Beaudine inspires a renewed look at our relationships and our approach to success. A must read. In part, it is about doing what you love, being passionate about everything you do, building genuine relationships, and asking those who are already in your cheering squad for help when you need it. You will remember his stories long after you put the book down. This book gives us foundational principles- simply stated and warmly presented. This is indeed a book you will want to share with your ¿who¿ or anyone who has forgotten there is something greater waiting right around the corner.

    Using your friends

    The main theme of the book is that old-fashioned networking is just that, "old-fashioned". You already know all the people who are going to help you accomplish your personal dream whether that includes a new job or not. People help people that they know. Mr. Beaudine is a man who places executives for a career, therefore, most of his examples are in the job obtaining category but his knowledge overlaps into any area where you have a dream. I must admit that for the first couple of chapters I felt like I was in Whoville with Dr. Seuss, Mr. Beaudine does use the "Who" factor a lot but once I was used to it, the annoyance disappeared. He uses many illustrations that make perfect sense like the character of Jimmy Stewart in "Its a Wonderful LIfe" who ended up asking his enemy for advice rather than his friends. Or the person who used a reference in a resume who mis-pronounced his name when called. Not exactly a "good" reference. His statement that "Everyone has a "WHO" network, a community of friends" really sums up the theme and he expands on this theme throughout the whole book. <BR/><BR/>I found that this book had some really good information for someone who was wanting to find a new position or look for ways in which to accomplish their dreams. Information on a source that is often overlooked by everyone. 4 stars

    Looking for A Job?

    If you are looking for a job or know someone who is, here is a good tool to help. In fact, if you have a job but would like to pursue your Dream Job, this is a book you need to read. This hardback 5-1/2" x 8-1/4" self-help book contains anecdotal stories illustrating the author's guidelines. Chapter 8 alone is worth the price of the book.

    SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

    The Power of Who, is quite simple, life changing. It is not possible to read this book and not come away with a new outlook on how to live your life, both personal and professional. It is brilliant.

    WANT TO GET HIRED FOR A JOB YOU LOVE?

    If you ever wanted to know what a top executive recruiter knows, this is the book ¿ The Power of Who. Beaudine may find more people in the masses jobs with this book when he explains, "... people hire people, not resumes." Everyone should take to heart these questions a perspective employer will ask about you, "#1 Do I know you, #2 Do I like you, #3 Do you understand my needs, #4 Are you the best for me in my particular situation?" I read the book on an airplane trip and was constantly writing notes about the key people that could actually lead me to a job I'm passionate about, rather than networking, linking, or making "friends" that don't really know me. His approach to identifying your authentic network ¿ the people that really care about you ¿ made great sense and had excellent examples of benefits.

    A MUST READ FOR JUST ABOUT EVERYBODY..very entertaining & very useful in life. I just wish I would have read this book 20 years ago.

    I have read numerous books from a wide range of authors. If there is no other book you read in 2009, this is the single book that will help you through these troubled times.

    A Powerful Read!

    In a life filled with work and a growing family, time to read a book is at a premium. However, making time to read this book was one of the best investments I made in myself this past year. Bob Beaudine has created a compelling read that is concise and incredibly insightful. The power of the book is in its common sense approach. Mr. Beaudine doesn't rely on complex theories or high minded concepts. He keeps it simple, direct and focused on results. <BR/><BR/>Mr. Beaudine's advice is based on years of real world experience dealing with top executives in a number of fields. Despite his expertise in dealing with A list executives, his strategies work not just in the C suite but on the assembly line as well. Thru out the book he weaves in great stories that engage the reader. My favorite is the magical round of golf with his dad. Even if you aren't in business this book will give you tons of insight on getting the most out of the relationships in your life.<BR/><BR/>Once you start this book, you won't want to stop. The only reason I didn't finish faster was my wife commandered the book(shortly after giving birth to twins) and refused to turn it over until she was done.<BR/><BR/>Get your copy today and unleash "The Power of Who".

    You Got WHO! You just don't know it yet!

    I love that this book makes you think about the people that really matter most in your life. Your entire life; business, personal, church, they all revolve around your WHO.<BR/><BR/>The Power of WHO will help you realize that you already know all the people you need to know to be a better businessperson, a better father and a better person. It is that good and that simple.<BR/><BR/>After reading Bob's book it changed the way I looked at my friends and my co-workers and made all those relationships better. Even more impressive was the way it changed my relationships at home. <BR/><BR/>This book is a rare gem that combines common sense with good business acumen. There really is a little magic in this book. Don't miss it!
