I finished “Friend of a Friend” by David Burkus a few days ago. It’s a look at human connections, how they happen, why they happen, and how to make them happen. It’s more of a scientific research based take than networking books, but the conclusion and prescriptions tend to be the same as those types of books. In a nutshell, humans have a fairly limited number of people we know, like, and hang with (our network). Then, there are some humans who have networks exponentially larger than average. Those with the larger network tend to make more money and enjoy higher social status. Cultivating a large network requires work, lots of it in the beginning and less as time goes on. Shared interests and activities tend to be the best way to cultivate a network, which means you have to get out and interact in order to grow and maintain friendships. Once you have a large network, all sorts of seemingly random opportunities present themselves, but they’re not random, they’re a direct effect of the network. “Friend of a Friend” is a great reminder that nothing in human existence is more important than relationships.
