This is a great textbook on working a room. On this particular subject it may be even THE ultimate textbook. Susan RoAne covered everything from exhibits via high school reunions to funeral services. Wow, what a tremendous experience! Susan was on schedule for more meetings than I changed diapers (and changed a lot of them).

But this is not some boring textbook which can substitute for a soothing lullaby. Not at all. This book is packed with both fun and interesting stories. Most of them came directly from Susan’s rich array of experiences. That makes the book far from the dreadful image of a textbook.

First some areas where it may have fell short for some users. As a representative of a (relatively) young generation I found her explanations of different social platforms boring. I skimmed through these and went straight to more “meaty” parts. But someone in his sixties may feel exactly opposite.

I also find the book a bit repetitive, but I’m not the kind of guy who shun from repetition. It helps to retain the lessons longer.

Connecting is hard, but she makes it easy
Susan also writes vividly. When she admits that mingling and talking to strangers is hard, I wholeheartedly agree with her. I was a shrinking violet who transformed into a confident person, so I went through quite a lot. 30 months ago I couldn’t say “Hi” to a stranger.

When Susan explains how to make it happen, it sounds fun and easy. I vote for her methods. I verified everything she teaches; every trick from her arsenal, which I knew and used worked as she prescribed. And I got some interesting results too. Since “shrinking violet” times I built a couple of deep friendships by starting conversations on a train to work. I also spoke with strangers about life-death issues.

Working a room mastery
But it was just the introductory part of the book. From there the author goes into room-working and that’s where her mastery really shows. She has a knack for breaking high plane ideas into actionable items. Susan has also a tendency to make a list whenever possible. There are an enormous number of lists and action steps included. And after each chapter you will find a quick summary, again in bullet points or the form of list, which makes for easy reading.

It’s really amazing how she was able to systematize and distill such intangible topic as human relationships.

Her ideas comes down to common sense. You won’t find there any backbreaking manipulation techniques which can be mastered only by years of training. I appreciate that because of the following reasons:

Common sense is nowadays uncommon
I don’t really know what common sense calls for in many situations; for example I have never been on reunion or a trade show.

I loved Susan’s advice on working virtual rooms. I’m not too bad in working them myself. I’ve been noticed by several people with 6 and 7 figure income businesses and obtained their help. I recognized in her advice my approach: just be genuine.

Not one-read kind of a book
I’m sure I’ll be going back to How to Work a Room time after time. The structure of book makes it easy to find just a particular kind of “room” and refresh the lesson in your mind. Now, before any new event I’ll take this book and skim an appropriate chapter.

If you are thinking about any career involving face- to-face contact with people (and most of careers demands at least basic social skills) How to Work a Room is a must read.

As an introvert who has struggled in the networking scene, I love this book! It gives great practical advice for conversation, manners and has been updated to include social media tips.

This book was suggested to me as someone who has struggled with shyness. Never cared much for these types of books and I will honestly say only about half of it was applicable to me. But the parts that I could connect with where good. A lot was pretty common sense based but I actually used some of the tips and found them helpful so I recommend this to anyone looking for a little help in the "being social" department

There were so many tips and suggestions on how to conduct yourself in networking situations that I found myself reviewing the book periodically in order to add a new tactic to my Arsenal. But also help me see that there were some things that I was already doing right. The big takeaway is to have fun and to be more interested than others rather than pushing your agenda.

Whether you consider yourself an introvert or an extrovert, get this book and make the most of the interactions you have with people in any setting. Susan RoAne writes in such an easy-to-read manner with fabulous stories and examples throughout. This is for anyone who ever talks to anyone! Not just for business. You never know who you may meet or what you may learn by following RoAne's tips! I highly recommend How to Work a Room.

This book is direct and an easy read. The rubber hits the road, so to speak, when you make a plan and put the content exercises to practice.
Gets repetitive. After page 25, I got it, I got it. OK, I'm good. No really.
