Although the title makes it sound more "aggressive," the social tactics and advice given in this book is very useful for people, who have to network, or just want to have an easier time talking to strangers at parties. I read the book and then tried one of the tactics at a Xmas party that evening and it really worked! I ended up meeting a nice acquaintance, with whom I still keep in touch occasionally.

How to Work a Room includes very practical common sense ideas that can help overcome fear and shyness as well as offering encouragement for putting the ideas into practice. The author writes a book that would enable anyone, particularly someone prone to fright at large crowds, to walk into a room and connect with people. Her techniques can help people move into the mainstream of a business or social gathering and have a more satisfying time.
