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".

    Story
    "A lesson that everyone should learn..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Go-Giver to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The message of this book is simple, yet very powerful... THANK YOU!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    For the most part


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    What made the experience of listening to The Go-Giver the most enjoyable?

    Enjoyable, easy story to listen to with good lessons to glean for life


    What about Bob Burg and John David Mann ’s performance did you like?

    Nothing overly special

    Not necessarily


    Any additional comments?

    A lovely book based on a clever story of one more transformation in the business world of a hardened business guy discovering his inner desire to give to the world rather than get. Nothing earth shattering rather a nice reminder that life IS about giving and not just getting.

    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.

    "I really enjoyed the book"

    Although no earth shattering information, the story is good and illustrates the principles nicely.

    Story
    "Tips for creating success, in novel format"
    What made the experience of listening to The Go-Giver the most enjoyable?

    Business books can be painfully dry. This one is written as a story, is brief and is memorable. It will be particularly helpful for those in the midst or beginning of a sales career.


    What other book might you compare The Go-Giver to and why?

    The 7 Levels of Communication - another business book in novel format.


    Have you listened to any of Bob Burg and John David Mann ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No
