A new edition with expanded content is available now, “The Go-Giver, Expanded Edition: A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea”
An engaging book that brings new relevance to the old proverb “Give and you shall receive”
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.”

I've read nearly 30 books so far this year, and this book was unquestionably the best of all of them. Definitely worth the money and the time to read it!
the basics always win
This book combines new thought with good business manners. It's principles are based on the Platinum Rule: Do onto others as they would like to be done onto. Unlike the Golden Rule: The one with the gold makes the rules.
In society, good manners are really about respecting others and showing them that respect. This is your guide to business manners. Even though the principles seem simple and un-revolutionary, sometimes the most simplest ideas are the most powerful. I strongly suggest you read this book.
Amazingly inspirational. I felt great after reading this!
