Publisher's Summary

"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 best seller 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 and listeners 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, a new introduction, a discussion guide, and a Q&A with the authors.

What the Critics Say

"This modern-day business parable, a quick read in the spirit of The Greatest Salesman in the World and The One Minute Manager, should do well with eager corporate-ladder climbers.... Over the course of five days, a restaurateur, a CEO, a financial advisor, a real-estate broker, and the mysterious 'Connector' teach Joe about the laws of value, compensation, influence, authenticity, and receptivity - concepts that make more immediate sense in this fictional context than they would in a formal business book."

    "Great reminder of what it's really about"

    I read that Dave Ramsey mandates all team members read this book. I see why. Take a chance and read through the five laws.

    "Life Changing"

    This book is easy to listen to. It is short and the main ideas are repeated numerous times. Enough so that you can listen to it at a faster rate.
