Reviews

"The most compelling parts of this book are the ones that look at the importance of developing and exploiting professional networks. As well as explaining network intelligence, or why your contacts' contact may be the best source of leads about potential jobs, the book also gives numerous tips - including ones gleaned from the world of online dating - about how best to broker effective relationships" * Economist *
"[An] extremely interesting and informative read" * Bookbag.co.uk *
"Rather than containing the usual tranch of aphorisms and advice on how to create lists of things you want to achieve, The Start-up Of You suggests arranging your career like a business ... We challenge you not to be inspired" * PA Life *
"It is the optimism of Silicon Valley that infuses this book: there is still hope for those striving to break into the charmed circle" -- Richard Waters * Financial Times *
"Being an entrepreneur isn't really about starting a business. It's a way of looking at the world: seeing opportunity where others see obstacles, taking risks when others take refuge. Whatever career you're in - or want to be in -The Start-Up of You holds lessons for success." -- Michael Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg, L.P. and Mayor, New York City
