Review quote

"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." -- Daniel H. Pink, New York Times bestselling author of Drive and To Sell Is Human "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. " -- Larry Winget, television personality and five-time bestselling author of Grow A Pair: How To Stop Being A Victim and Take Back Your Life, Your Business and Your Sanity "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." -- Dianna Booher, author of Creating Personal Presence and Communicate With Confidence
