    For generations, we have focused on the individual drivers of success: passion, hard work, talent, and luck. But today, success is increasingly dependent on how we interact with others. It turns out that at work, most people operate as either takers, matchers, or givers. Whereas takers strive to get as much as possible from others and matchers aim to trade evenly, givers are the rare breed of people who contribute to others without expecting anything in return.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Give and Take to be better than the print version?

    I've given up on the audio version of this book and will be getting the print version instead. The narration is just that bad. Every time the author quotes someone, the narrator slows down and lowers his voice so I was constantly having to adjust the volume of the book and back up for the quiet bits that I missed before I could make the adjustment. I also have an issue with giving certain quotes an Australian accent. The author points out that the person quoted is Australian, but this isn't a novel - throwing on a single accent to the book is distracting. I don't know if the fault is with the narrator or whoever directed the audio recording, but I just couldn't stomach it.
