The skills discussed in Life Skills were originally lessons about how to network effectively. The author,
Larry James, used them in his speeches on the subject of networking. As he traveled around the country,
he realized that these skills applied to all areas of life, not just networking, and were relevant to everyone,
not just to networkers.
The book is based on the premise that a sales professional (anybody who networks for a living), or anyone
interested in improving their quality of life, succeeds only as they are able to better themselves and build
strong personal and professional alliances. No matter what your level of expertise, this book will deliver
state-of-the-art techniques that you can immediately use to start building better relationships and improving
your alliances with your customers and friends.
Life skills really are common-sense guidelines written for people who want to be the best they can be.
And they are for everyone - whether you are in sales or management, a mother, a father, in school, out of
school, a dropout, or a household executive! Basically, no matter what or where you are in life, you will
find that Life Skills can make a contribution to you personally and professionally.
