Does the word "networking" make you cringe? Maybe that is why many shy away from the very skill that can help them personally and professionally. In Nonstop Networking author and personal marketing consultant, Andrea Nierenberg, reveals unique and easy-to-use strategies for linking-up with people in order to achieve mutual personal and professional goals. Based on five simple steps, Andrea’s system is different from other networking techniques in that it focuses on comfortable and familiar techniques for building relationships and not on handing out business cards and asking for referrals. Readers will discover positive ways to network anywhere, any time and the secret of how to build relationships that will improve their life, luck, and career. Learn twelve techniques to use when approaching a room full of strangers, master eight sure-fire communications skills, discover the types of people you need in your network (and that may already be a part of your circle of contacts.) Are you shy or introverted? Learn networking techniques that capitalize on your natural abilities. Are you anxious about keeping track of all your contacts? Andrea presents an elegantly simple system for organizing and staying in touch with everyone in your network. Easy to read with many examples of personal success stories throughout, Nonstop Networking is a must have for recent graduates, job seekers, career changers, consultants, entrepreneurs, or anyone with a personal or professional goal to achieve.


"Nierenberg offers several techniques for approaching a room full of strangers and the communications skills necessary to approach them. The book makes a special effort to show those introverts how to use their personality traits to advantage."

- San Antonio Express-News

"To get a feel for this process, start by being helpful to others. Set up others with job search resources and see what it feels like, says Andrea Nierenberg of Manhattan, author of ‘Nonstop Networking’ and a frequent speaker on college campuses."

- Newsday

"Make sure that when you send holiday cards to clients this year that you take a minute or two to write a handwritten note, urges Andrea Nierenberg, author of Nonstop Networking (Capital Books Inc.)"

- Fortune Small Business Newsletter

"Andrea Nierenberg, author of Nonstop Networking: How to Improve Your Life, Luck and Career, says one of the most important rules of networking is, don’t ditch a person in the room just because he or she doesn’t appear to be a useful contact. People-hopping is never pretty."

- Associated Press

"Why waste time on the road? Build business relationships while waiting at the airport, on the plane, or at hotel check-in, suggests Andrea Nierenberg, author of 'Nonstop Networking.'"

- Successful Meetings

"Networking to find a job is increasingly hard work, so it is easy to understand the appeal of landing a job interview while standing in line for a movie or over a steam table at lunch time. But for Andrea R. Nierenberg, president of the Nierenberg Group, a Manhattan marketing consultancy, taking advantage of any chance meeting is a form of networking. ‘Networking is a state of mind,’ said Ms. Nierenberg, author of ‘Nonstop Networking: How to Improve Your Life, Luck and Career’ and the forthcoming ‘Million Dollar Networking.’"

- Coeli Carr, The New York Times

"You've got the social aspect of networking figured out. You've got functions on the calendar, business cards in hand and referrals to make. But at some point, you need to organize your contacts to make the most of your efforts, says Andrea Nierenberg, author of ‘Nonstop Networking.’"

- The Courier Post

"Networking is simply an overused and poorly understood term for exercising good people skills and building good relationships. It isn't something to be whipped out when you need a favor. ‘It's like flossing your teeth,’ says Andrea Nierenberg, a New York business-development consultant and author of ‘Nonstop Networking.' ‘You can't do it once and expect it to work. You have to do it consistently to get results.’"

- Perri Capell, The Wall Street Journal’s College Journal
