"The Go-Giver is the most important parable about business-and life- of our time" - Adam Grand, Net York Times Bestselling Author of Give and Take.
National BestSeller - "The Go-Giver is a must-read for anyone who wants to change the world"
" 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 and 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 other's 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 bestseller that brings to life the old proverb "Give and you shall receive"
Nearly a decade since The Go-Giver's 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 find the 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, together with a forward by Arianna Huffington, a new introduction, a discussion guide, and a Q&A with the authors.

"Giving, touching other's lives, expanding the circle of our concern to include others, being authentic and being always open to receiving as well as giving. That's not just a children's fairy tale- it's a good description of many of the most amazing people I've encountered."
- ARIANNA HUFFINGTON, from the foreword
"The Go-Giver is a small book that packs a huge idea. The surest path to success-in all senses of that overused word-is to give. As Burg and Mann show in their compelling tale, not only do giver prosper, they also change the world"

-DAVE RAMSEY, host of the Dave Ramsey Show
