Take the Stress Out of Networking with David Burkus

His newest book, FRIEND OF A FRIEND, offers readers a new perspective on how to grow their networks and build key connections—one based on the science of human behavior, not rote networking advice.

His TED talk has been viewed over 2 million times and he is a regular contributor to Harvard Business Review.
