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".

"You owe it to yourself to listen to The Go-Giver and share its message with those who matter most to you. It is a beautiful audiobook that will touch your soul and inspire your heart." (David Bach, author of The Automatic Millionaire)
Can't live without audio books! My eyes thank the inventor:-))
Yes, I would. it's full of useful and insightful information. I even bought the book for all my friends.
The three reasons why people work!
Give Give Give!
Life Changing Story
Short and sweet, story comes to life with compelling characters.Offers a different view on business and success: focus on what you can give, how much value you can offer, how many people you can impact.. rather than focusing on profits and working backwards.
“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” - Albert Einstein
The book introduces a powerful and will thought set of ideas about an insight that go giverrs get more in life (which is great) into a weakly constructed story with some even "cheesy" bits and pieces.
I found this story to be very well narrated and it had me on the edge of my seat with anticipation most of the time. Make no mistake however this is a piece of fiction... a piece of fiction and then some. I feel this is where it really fell short for me. I was looking for an inspirational book that could assist me in the REAL world. You would have better odds of winning the lottery than even half of this story EVER coming true. If you practiced what this book preached you would likely be trampled on and left for dead in about 5 minutes. A great 'Chicken Soup' type story that you desperately wish could actually come true but by the end you know that even Dorothy tapping her heels together 3 times isn't gonna save ya.
i already have several times
it reminds me of robin sharma's writings of educational stories/novels
all of them
towards the end when the enlightenment is apparent
looking forward to more writings from the author
It reminded me of the core reason I became an entrepreneur which is to serve as many people as possible without expecting anything in return. The paradox (life is full of them) is that as a result you get more than you ever needed if this is done from the heart with no other agenda but to touch as many lives as possible in a positive way.
Dont keep score!
The ability to listen to it when I'm driving, going to sleep or sunbathing, LOL.
Amazing, comforting and stimulating
The idea that I was right along since I started to plan about going into business a long time ago. It is very pleasing to hear that helping others to the best of your ability is the best shortcut to success.
This magnificent read with clear diction and agreeable tone of voice.
When it was said that any good principle that work well in business will also work well in human relations like love relationships.
I enjoy so much I can't stop myself to listen again every week or so.
I also recommend this product and audible.com to all my partners
I really enjoyed this simple business book. It is a nice change from the straight forward business books I have been reading. Reminds me of the Monk who sold his Ferrari. If you enjoy storytelling and business this is a fun listen.
Several made me think of my own experiences.
Did not read the print version. For me; I love audiobooks. It's like going to a movie, but in many ways it's better. In my minds eye, I am the director.
The message of this book is simple, yet very powerful... THANK YOU!
For the most part
This is a great book for young and old. Especially young adults and teenagers. If they could learn and apply these principals in life and business, they would have tremendous success and most importantly, happiness.
I finished the book today, and what a great book! If you have not listen to this yet, get It!
