Richard Koch has started several valuable network ventures and is the author of The 80/20 Principle, an international . This is a well written book about network theory and the power of lose connections. Like all of Richard's work, he does a masterful job of explaining in very clear simple terms why this matters and how it applies to our lives. I especially liked the case studies, including a fascinating description of the Apostle Paul's role in successfully propagating Christianity. Another chapter that stopped me in my tracks - I read it three times - was the one on how it applies to the problem of poverty.

This book explains how to have a successful career.

I have read several of Richard's books and I think they all have one thing in common: They take a big idea that you may have come across or heard about, and then they make you realize that you haven't paid proper attention to it. In this case, that big idea is that *we are under-using our weak links*. Weak links are people we know, but don't meet with too often. Superconnect gives you plenty of advice for how to (1) increase your network, (2) use it more effectively, (3) be more liked/join the right groups, and (4) increase the serendipity in your life.

Highly recommended. I found the first 30% of the book especially good.

Richard Koch has written another great book that takes a complex hypothesis and breaks it down into simple, easy to understand concepts that those of us who are less gifted can understand. Human relationships and networking has become one of the most important drivers for our development as a human race and the most advanced animal. Contacts and links between people connect us all and it is how we use these superconnectors to our advantage as to whether or not we become successful in getting what we want and need. Great book. I would recommend all of Richard Koch's books beginning with the 80/20 Principle which changed how I viewed everything in business and my personal life.

Brilliant book with practical, actionable steps. The insight that "network stars > plan vanilla stars" is pure business wisdom. Read the book to see what I mean...

A well written book with lots of examples demonstrating the significance and importance of weak links and networks in our society.

I haven't started this one yet. It's on my list. It came highly recommended but the stack of books I'm tackling is large.

This is a jewel of a book, and goes very well with Richard Koch's practical masterpiece, "The 80/20 Principle". I have applied the precepts of increasing my "hubs" or contact groups and have seen powerful and happy results in less than 3 weeks! This author has the unusual capacity of writing fun, easy to read books that are deeply transformational and very practical. You see results FAST. Any single chapter is worth the price of the book. A must for any success seeker and a pleasure to have in any library. This is the PERFECT lunch companion book. I dare you to buy it, you'll be very happy you did!

Richard Koch, famous for the marketing of the 80/20 principle, initially identified by V.Paretro, now, together with Greg Lockwood, exploits and diffuses Granovetter's ideology of "The Strength of Weak Ties", the famous paper that initiated a whole new chapter of social science ideology. In this very nice and easily readable book, Granovetter's principle of the sociological importance in the modern connected world of weak ties, is integrated to a new way of considering society as a network of spokes and hubs. Actually, the extreme originality of this work, because, original it is, resides in the combination of a well accepted idea with the ongoing evolution of communication technology.
The book is structured in thirteen chapters that address many already known and discussed issues such as the concept of the Small World, the existence of Superconnectors (individuals that have the capacity of making many weak ties and utilizing them to raise interpersonal relationships), Hubs and their meaning at individual and societal level, the importance and real meaning of Cyberspace, the detailed description of the importance of Networks in society, how Business relates to all these issues, and how Business has contributed to build sociological principles that may apply to our singular existences. A last chapter is dedicated on how networks and superconnectors can actually act in reducing poverty both in first world and third world realities. Each chapter has a summary of the state of the art of the issue and is followed by a number of interviews and personal experiences of various active members of society, which make the reading very vital and stimulating.
Basically the concept goes that weak ties work better for expansion of job opportunities and the evolution of society than strong ties, which often limit and trap initiatives and creative thinking. But as a corollary to this initial concept, the authors also explore the importance of Hubs in the diffusion of ideas. An enlightening historical example is that of Paul (for Christ) and Lenin (for Marx) as creators of hubs that actually did the marketing of the ideas invented by the predecessors.
This book is conceived in the context of business world, however it can be useful for anyone at every level. It incredibly gives a push towards a major opening up of mentality and social behavior and positively affects the way we think.

Fascinating and powerful book that shows how success is never simply down to your intrinsic talents or worth, but whether you are able to use the power of `hubs' and `networks' to achieve your aims.

The hubs that we choose to get involved with (for example, the company that we work for) are crucial for our success. Join a fast rising firm in a growing industry, and it will be difficult not to do very well.

Smart people choose jobs, activities or places to live that will expose them to a wide range of people and ideas, because they know that one of these `weak links' can be the source of their own defining idea or enterprise. Once upon a time we lived in villages where we knew perhaps 100-200 people. This small world limited our opportunities in every way, whereas today our lives are richer because we are exposed to people and ideas from everywhere.

The book is full of great tips on business strategy, as you would expect from Koch. One of the surprising things he notes is that online business is more monopolistic and concentrated than regular commerce. In search engines, for instance, there is really only Google, in online communities there is now really only Facebook. Thus the creation of such hubs, with their vast promise of wealth and influence, is the obvious goal of the entrepreneur. In such ways we can use network effects to our own advantage - but if we are not aware of network and hub theory in the first place, we are flying blind.

Many of the ideas Koch talks introduces us to are counter-intuitive, but once we own them we have a tremendous advantage.
