Susan McPherson, Founder and CEO of McPherson Strategies, has announced that her book “The Lost Art of Connecting” debuts this month.
Editor’s Note: The following announcement is from Susan McPherson.
I am excited to share with you some big news: my new book “The Lost Art of Connecting will be out this month! Imagine launching a book all about the importance of building deep, meaningful connections throughout your career during a global pandemic when we have been socially isolated for 11+ months. Well, that’s me.
My book, The Lost Art of Connecting, joins the world on March 23rd (McGraw-Hill). This labor of love offers readers a practical guide to reclaiming the power of human contact and features 30+ interviews with a host of characters ranging from Baratunde Thurston to Cindi Leive to Adam Grant, all sharing their perspectives on connection. In complete candor, I burst into tears recently considering the irony of it all, but then reclaimed my composure when I realized that our ties to one another (via whatever tech platform is our personal choice) is what has kept us sane during these challenging months.
More information about the book is available here and you can now pre-order on Porchlight or Amazon. If you preorder and email me the receipt, I’d love to make a donation in your name to The 19th, an independent, nonprofit newsroom reporting at the intersection of gender, politics and policy.

“Susan McPherson is a super connector: she builds unusually deep relationships with an unusually wide range of people at an unusually rapid pace. In this book, she explains how what looks like a natural talent is actually a learned skill and shares practical advice on how to build it. In a time when our social skills are getting rusty, her book might be the polish that every introvert, shy extravert, and reluctant networker needs.”
