"One of the most powerful tools for success and satisfaction is at our fingertips, unused: the social ties and connections that too often we let wither. Jason Levin compiles wide-ranging research with his own broad experience to demonstrate how we can reconnect with those we've known -- and then nurture those opportunities to advance our professional and personal lives."
"This book is for any woman who thinks about a friend or colleague she lost touch with, or any man kicking himself for not doing a better job of maintaining a relationship because life just took over. So, this book is for pretty much every human on planet earth.
Relationships To Infinity is brilliant in its straightforward explanation for why we need real social connections in our lives and our work, and offers up concrete instructions on how to set and achieve goals for being better about it. And as Jason Levin's friend and former neighbor, I know he practices what he preaches."
