Publisher's Summary

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. And so, one day, 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 share with Joe the Five Laws of Stratospheric Success and teach him how to 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 heartwarming and inspiring tale that brings new relevance to the old proverb "Give and you shall receive".

    "One of the best books period!"

    This book is an excellent book. It not only can help you in your business but your personal life as well. I have listened to many different books on business and implemented parts of many of them. However, none of them have quite hit me to the core like this one. This book has quickly moved it's way to becoming the cornerstone of my business. Anyone that has a service or sales business absolutly must read this book. It is not about how to get your employees to work, but when you have this at the core, other parts of your business will work better. It is amazing at how quickly doing what they say can take hold.

    Story
    "This book actually changed my mind."

    It's not often that I read a book in novel form such as this and come away really thinking differently. I would put this book in the same category as "The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team" - but the story itself is really interesting in and of itself. The principles within are solidified through it - it has a parable-like impact. Great listen.

    "Life principles, not just about selling."

    I have practiced it for at least 4 years now. The results are simply amazing. Re-reading, re-listening and sharing for the umpteenth times.

    "Loved the short audio. Finished it on a plane ride"

    I know some reviews didn't like the authors reading it, but I did. I loved having their voice with their words. I even took notes as I listened. I also liked that it was a fiction style self improvement book. Easy for me to follow.

    Story
    "Quite possibly my favorite book & audio book both"

    The message is so simple yet seemingly out of reach to so many. Of course the message, if received, could be read by Kermit the frog (no disrespect intended to my favorite muppet) but I genuinely love how it is diverted by both authors, actually giving it more authenticity. One I may easily read quite often.
