Summary

Summary

Personal and professional networks shape everything we do. A chance meeting with an old colleague leads to a swanky new job; two businessmen collaborate online and cofound a successful start-up; a friend introduces a promising entrepreneur to a millionaire looking to invest. In this practical guide to discovering the rules of our superconnected world, the authors show that success is less about who you are than how you connect. With an eye toward business applications, Superconnect outlines the new rules of our densely linked society. At the core of the analysis are three simple network components—strong relationships, weak relationships, and hubs—that interact in surprising, counterintuitive ways. Understanding how these components mesh, and connecting unrelated people, is the way to achieve in today’s hyper-connect world.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Since Koch has been about equally successful as an entrepreneur and investor and as a business author, he is someone worth listening to.” Independent (London)
“A fascinating and enriching read.” Management Today (UK)
“Through lively case studies and stories, the authors explore how the Internet has changed links, the new rules and characteristics of a hyperlinked society, and how firms and individuals can benefit from the all-important weak links. Weak links, or casual contacts, are a crucial resource; requiring little work or effort, these relationships ‘deliver enormous dividends,’ and this smart and thought-provoking analysis explains how individuals and businesses can harness their power for almost any kind of professional advancement.” Publishers Weekly
