How To Network Awesomely – A Book Review

Colin Wright, the author of Network Awesomely, the book I’m going to talk about today, could be easily substituted to my blog post about being a digital nomad. I mean, the guy lives in a different country every two months, blog about his experiences in some of the most remote corners of the world while still maintaining his brains in one piece. If you still don’t believe me, go check out his guest post on my blog.

Now, what’s the thing with this ebook? Why is this important enough to talk about it today? In one simple sentence: because it’s packed with value. And if you want to know more than one simple sentence, relax and sit down, I’ll tell you all about the 4 points this ebook won from my part. 🙂

A Networking Ebook Written By Many Authors

The first thing that will really hit you when you’ll read this ebook is that it’s written not by a single author, not by two authors but by more than 20 well established bloggers. Exactly, you will find more than one opinion, from one guy. Which is kinda makes sense since we’re talking about an ebook on networking. Which reminds me that I’m one of those 20 bloggers in the ebook, with a short fragment of what I’ve learned from more than 10 years of doing business (and I’m the shy type, if you’re wondering). There are a lot of other well established bloggers and I will randomly select only 3 names (don’t want to upset anyone) just to give an idea: Johnny B. Truant, Diggy from and Oscar del Ben from Freestyle Mind. That’s the first big point that the ebook wins from yours truly.

Simple, Workable Advice

The second point the ebook wins is on the content layer: a part the content provided by those more than 20 bloggers, what Colin writes is not rocket science. It’s simple, workable advice that can be applied from the next second. If you’re wondering, Colin was also on the “bad with people” side, but he managed to get over it. Don’t expect diagrams or flip charts on this ebook, it’s all about direct interaction and simple things.

Appealing Design

I confess that I was a little bit shocked when I first read the ebook. Because it didn’t look like an ebook at all. It looked like a nice magazine. And then I realized that since Colin is a big advocate of lifestyle design, the ebook should have taken the form of a lifestyle magazine too. So, be prepared for a little bit of visual challenge, on the “nice and appealing” side of the word “challenge”. And that would be the point number 3, of course.


I won’t say more. The ebook is 20$ and for a package filled with so much valuable info, from so many sources, I really think Colin did the best he could to come with an affordable price. So, if you’re into the networking game, or just want to go over your social shyness, go grab the ebook now. You can thank me later. 😉 By the way, that was the 4th point.
