Details: Product Description “Most people just laugh when they hear that the secret to success is giving. . . . Then again, most people are nowhere near as successful as they wish they were.” The Go-Giver tells the story of an ambitious young man named Joe who yearns for success. Joe is a true go-getter, though sometimes he feels as if the harder and faster he works, the further away his goals seem to be. Desperate to land a key sale at the end of a bad quarter, he seeks advice from the enigmatic Pindar, a legendary consultant referred to by his many devotees simply as the Chairman. Over the next week, Pindar introduces Joe to a series of “go-givers”: a restaurateur, a CEO, a financial adviser, a real estate broker, and the “Connector” who brought them all together. Pindar’s friends teach Joe the Five Laws of Stratospheric Success and help him open himself up to the power of giving. Joe learns that changing his focus from getting to giving—putting others’ interests first and continually adding value to their lives—ultimately leads to unexpected returns. Imparted with wit and grace, The Go-Giver is a classic bestseller that brings to life the old proverb “Give and you shall receive.” Nearly a decade since its original publication, the term “go-giver” has become shorthand for a defining set of values embraced by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Today this timeless story continues to help its readers find fulfillment and greater success in business, in their personal lives and in their communities. This expanded edition includes the text of the original business parable, together with a foreword by Arianna Huffington, a new introduction, a discussion guide, and a Q&A with the authors. Review “A quick read in the spirit of The Greatest Salesman in the World and The One Minute Manager. Burg and Mann write with a simple, informal style that offers a working-person’s interpretation of the old adage ‘give and you shall receive.’” — Publishers Weekly “The powerful business idea referenced in the title is that ‘shifting the focus from getting to giving and putting the other person first is the key to business success and personal fulfillment.’ … Explanations of these concepts and how to employ them are clear and to the point.” — Booklist “The world always needs a fresh approach to its most important messages. The Go-Giver is a great way to continue to spread a positive and enriching message.” — Soundview Executive Book Alert “Similar to Mitch Albom’s Tuesdays with Morrie, providing wisdom and insight on how to be more successful.” —TheStreet.com “ The Go-Giver has created such a buzz CEOs are buying it in bulk for their entire organizations.” — Huffington Post “A cross between Jonathan Livingston Seagull and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People … an uplifting, quick read of a book that will appeal to customers who want to bring more heart and a holistic sense of mission to their livelihoods.” — Retailing Insight “Deftly written and thoroughly reader-friendly … informed and informative as well as inspired and inspiring.” — Midwest Book Review “The most important parable about business—and life—of our time.” — Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take “A must-read for anyone who wants to change the world.” —Glenn Beck, talk show host and founder of TheBlaze “A small book that packs a huge idea. As Burg and Mann show in their compelling tale, not only do givers prosper, they also change the world.” —Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell Is Human and Drive “ The Go-Giver is one of my favorite books ever. It has made a huge difference in my life, and it aligns with everything I stand for. If you don’t have this book, you have to get yourself a copy now.” —Marie Forleo, founder of B-School and MarieTV “Not since Who Moved My Cheese? have I enjoyed a parable as much as this. You owe it to yourself to read The Go-Giver and share its message with those who matter
