The Go-Giver: A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea by Bob Burg and John David Mann

A little, but powerful book about being successful in business and life. Written in narrative nonfiction format, it tells the story of one man’s discovery of giving, abundance and success. It focusses on five laws that govern immeasurable success. At its heart it is about giving more than you can earn in monetary terms. It’s about delivering service when you wish to influence others, placing others’ needs above your own and giving your authentic self. Once you grasp these principles and apply them, business success will become more of a reality. A quick read, but worthwhile to read at least twice a year. (I recently read the Afrikaans translation.)
