The core premise/promise of this book is that each person has a set of relationships that are of great value on many fronts, from the intimate to the professional; what is more, each of these relationships has the ability to have a profound trajectory, punctuated both by active "doing" but also by serendipity.
Porter discusses the notion of "give, give, get" in which relationships are not about transaction but upon heaping generosity on others.
While what I've written might appear mundane, one has only to sit in one business meeting, attend one business conference, or struggle through one business book to know that for most, relationships are means to and end.
This book should be ready by people across professions; anyone who needs a little light to be lit will benefit greatly from Porter's book.
