Press, Articles and Interviews for Networking Is Not Working

It has been one week since Networking Is Not Working was released. We are still #1 in a few categories on Amazon and I am incredibly grateful for all of your support.

I’ve received some great press and have had the honor of sharing my thoughts about the book with a number of media outlets. I put together this post to archive everything—or as a place to get started if you’re new to me and the book.


“Networking always sounds like a simple concept — but as we’ve all discovered, it can be a maddeningly mysterious and elusive reality. Three cheers, then, for Derek Coburn. In this terrific book, he explains why your efforts to connect may be falling short and provides an arsenal of effective strategies for building a productive network of colleagues.”
Daniel H. Pink, #1 New York Times bestselling author of To Sell Is Human and Drive

“Finally, a how-to guide that throws slick schmoozing out the window and focuses on building meaningful relationships. Derek Coburn’s book offers actionable tips for making connections that create value for everyone involved. If more people followed his approach, we’d look forward to networking, instead of dreading it.”
Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take

“Derek has removed the “work” from “network” with this book. For an introvert like me, he’s unlocked the secret code.”
James Altucher, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Choose Yourself

“Derek teaches simple yet profound truths that can transform the way you see networking.”
Mark Batterson, multiple New York Times bestselling author and Lead Pastor of National Community Church

“Networking is a totally essential skill that so many people get wrong or hate because they feel fake. If you want to create meaningful connections and authentic relationships read this now!”
Yanik Silver, founder Maverick1000 and author of 34 Rules for Maverick Entrepreneurs

“This is now THE book on Networking for this era of doing business. A must read for all CEOs and their key employees. Derek has forever changed my outlook on networking from something I hated and avoided doing, to something I’m now excited to do more of.”
Cameron Herold, author of Double Double
