I am an avid fan of Jeffrey Gitomer, sales guru based in Charlotte, NC. Jeffrey has an excellent brand when it comes to sales and communication. Of course, his slew of little books are not exception. One of my favorites, which I recommend for networking is the "Little Black Book of Connections". This pint size wonder offers various tips for building relationships, developing a solid network and adding value!
