    Explode the delusions about networking!

    This book by Dr. Misner, Mike Garrison, and Mike Macedonio is truly exceptional. It blows away the myths about networking. It clarifies the powerful impact that a strong, closed contact network can have on any business. It is an outstanding read. You'll never look at word-of-mouth advertising and referral networking the same again.

Truth or Delusion not only dispels myths that truly waste professional's time when they are out networking, but it also gives them simple, effective nuggets that those professionals can use to dramatically improve their effectiveness. Even better, it does it in a way that makes this an incredibly enjoyable read as well. I not only am recommending it to my clients and colleagues, I also am giving it to my top clients. And to the authors...thank you sirs!

    Clears up common misconceptions about word-of-mouth networking

    This is a great book for clearing up networking misinformation commonly out there. You hear people say, 'It's not what you know, but who you know.' That one is revealed in this book as a delusion! I won't spoil it for you, but there is a great explanation on how to correct that common delusion that makes a lot of sense. There are 48 more of these 'truth or delusions' in this book! It is a fast read and quick to apply. Well done!

    Everyone Should Read The Book - Truth or Delusion? Truth!

    WOW!!! I loved this book. Being an Executive Director of a networking group, I teach people how to effectively and profitably network every day. This book has just moved to the top of my arsenal of training tools. It is laid out in an insightful and easy to read format. Some of the myths of networking were easy to spot as delusions, they are just common sense. Others were a bit surprising. This book is a MUST read for anyone who networks in any capacity, but most especially for those who want to network their way to profitability.
