Love is the Killer App: How to Win Business and Influence Friends
Three Rivers Press, 2003 - 225 pages
Are you wondering what the next killer app will be? Do you want to know how you can maintain and add to your value during these rapidly changing times? Are you wondering how the word love can even be used in the context of business?
Instead of wondering, read this book and find out how to become a lovecat—a nice, smart person who succeeds in business and in life.
How do you become a lovecat? By sharing your intangibles. By that I mean:
Your knowledge: everything that comes from all the books that I'll encourage you to devour.
Your network: the collection of friends and contacts you now have, which I'll teach you how to grow and nurture.
Your compassion: that human warmth you already possess—in these pages I'll convince you that you can show it freely at the office.
What happens when you do all this?
* You become a rich source of information to all around you.
* You are seen as a person with valuable insight.
* You are perceived as generous to a fault, producing surprise and delight.
* You double your business intelligence in one year.
* You triple your network of personal relationships in two years.
* You quadruple the number of colleagues in your life who love you like family.
In short, you become one of those amazing, outstanding people to whom everyone turns, who leads rather than follows, who never runs out of ideas, contacts, or friendship.
Here's the real scoop: Nice guys don't finish last. They rule!

Review: Love Is the Killer App: How to Win Business and Influence FriendsUser Review - Heather Geisler - Goodreads
Great book on why we should not have agendas - share what you know, who you know and show love! Sounds out there but really works - this guy worked for Mark Cuban - great insight! Read full review
This book by Tim Sanders helped me realize that the way of the business world didn't have to be the way I would live my life. The lovecat way which Tim describes and I so related to which seemed to work for me made me realize that the rough and tough world of business didn't have to be the only way. There is a better way and it can make the place feel welcoming and embracing, caring about the people as well as the work they do.
If you aren't sure about how work life is working out for you, this book is definitely worth the read!
Big thank you goes out to Pastor Billy who gave me the book as a gift.
