If you thought this was a self development book on motivating you to get better position in terms of networking this is not that book Well not uite Still a lot of big ideas to implementThis is where an economics writing for sure written by an economisteconomics professor of Stanford University collides with social issues of networking ranging from making friends and dating and choosing college to contagion of disease to banking system and world s socio economic ineualityAs an International Political Economy student I truly enjoyed this book I ve learned a lot from 僕の愛を知れ!
