I just finished the book. I must say it was fantastic. I think it simpy reinforced some basic beliefs I held, but didn`t necessarily encounter often in the coporate enviroment I came from.
The main point of the book is that to succeed in business, one method is to be what the author calls a "lovecat." I`m guessing this is the term used because it is kind of the opposite of a "bulldog." By being a lovecat, you use your knowledge, network, and compassion in your business life. This has to be sincere though, and that sharing your knowledge, sharing your network, and showing compassion is a good thing and will help you and those around you.
It is in some respects a book about business karma. In the words of Earl (not sure if you watch this show), "if you do good things, good things will happen to you." I don`t want to water this book down into the simple phrase above, however, because it is much more than that.
You can`t expect that helping others connect though, will ultimately help you. The book has some wonderful examples of how using the lovecat system has changed the authors life and other`s lives.
Hope this gives a little better synopsis.
