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.

In 2001 Mo Gawdat realized that despite his incredible success, he was desperately unhappy. A lifelong learner, he attacked the problem as an engineer would: examining all the provable facts and scrupulously applying logic. Eventually, his countless hours of research and science proved successful, and he discovered the equation for permanent happiness. Thirteen years later, Mo's algorithm would be put to the ultimate test. After the sudden death of his son, Ali, Mo and his family turned to his equation—and it saved them from despair.

A lot of this book is about Mo’s personal and tragic experiences with his sons early death. This is used as the baseline to setup all the stories, concepts and ideas that he and us can use as a way to live a happier, and live in the moment kind of life. This isn’t just a feel good happy pat you on the back book. It’s real, raw, and coming from a man who has a background in engineering but somehow seems to get the psychological and philosophical points dead on target with the points he makes. I highly recommend reading/listening to this book. It’s an investment of time but well worth it.

This book deals with a lot of insightful and meaningful insight as to how the human brain operates and how we can become a better thinker to her in person overall with simple techniques. What I got from the book was it won't be easy to change your mind but the concepts are easy and it is possible for anybody to get out of the negative mindset even if you have some sort of anxiety or depression. I think this is a great read for anybody who has suffered and some sort of a way with negativity or being around bad influences to get you on the right path to a great career.
