Go giver is one of the top 5 greatest

Go giver is one of the top 5 greatest books I have ever read. It elevates humanity in this world as it talks about natural laws of the universe such a giving, coexisting, respecting, helping and receiving. Go Giver is as much a business book as it is about life. If one follows these 5 stratospheric principles to the word, it certainly is going to make you a better human and if everyone in this world follows these, the planet is going to be such a wonderful world. Naval Ravikanth says " it's not how many books you read, it's how many times you read a book that will help you that matters ". I couldn't agree more to this, I read this book last year and read it this year again. I gifted this book to a few friends who I think could benefit out of it. it can be the best present to give to anyone. This book is a treasure.

What a Powerful read indeed!!!!!

Spoiler, this is a series of books #1 being my top pick. Bob Burg and John David Mann have really done something great here.

Powerful Parable

If you want a quick read with lessons to jump your business results, this is the one. Joe, the main character, learns how to pay it forward in a business environment. Of the five laws of success discovered, The Law of Value, The Law of Compensation, The Law of Influence, The Law of Authenticity, and The Law of Receptivity, for anyone trying to do business in Social Networking 2.0 right now, The Law of Influence offers a straight path to success: Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people's interests first. Particularly a good philosophy for introverts since the focus is - on others. The Go-Giver will undoubtedly rank as a classic alongside Og Mandino's The Greatest Salesman in the World.

Best New Motivational Business Book for 2008!

Dear Bob and John, I could not wait to get up today and write to you about your new book, "The Go-Giver!" First you have to know that once I started reading it, I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! The story of Joe and true-life examples you gave throughout the book, not only kept my attention, they made me want to jump inside the pages and be a part of the story. When you said, "Heidi, you will recognize yourself in the Go-giver," you were spot on. I identified with many of the challenges Joe faced in his career. The book really made me reflect on where I am in life and where I'd like to be. For that I thank you. In fact, I plan to start working on each of the Five Laws of Stratospheric Success beginning today. So Bob and John thank you for writing such a wonderful, easy to read, and most importantly easy to implement book of life's lessons. You can be sure I will tell everyone I know about it! And cannot wait to buy several copies for my own family and friends. Everyone needs this book!

by Nancy McDonald, PhD

This `little red book', with it's seemingly simple (yet powerful) parable, provides a special road map for true and lasting success-in business and in life. Many books have been written about the `art' and rewards of giving, yet, none have shown and exposed the differences between the Go-Getter and the Go-Giver in such a memorable way. Everyone can learn something from this book (even people who think they have given and not gotten back). People can achieve success and even monetary success with hard and honest work. However, to achieve "stratospheric" success takes some special understandings of the "laws" presented in this book. It needs a seal that says, 'Open Only If You Desire Stratospheric Success!' Those that open it and don't understand it may not be deserving it again!

Timely, simple truth in a crazy world

While I'm not usually a business parable kind of guy I found myself connecting with this one more than any I have read. In fact, it may be the FIRST one I have completed through to the end. Page-by-page I was touched by the story. Books that cause a paradigm shift are far and few between but Burg and Mann have given the world just such a book. In a hectic, crazy, get it all done as fast as you can kind of world it delivers just the right message for solid, sustainable success. Not monetary success, although that may be the result, but human being success. The kind of success that has been written about in many other parables through history. This parable will take its place among the rest of them. Read it, experience it, practice it and touch the world in ways that are uncommon in all the craziness.

This Book Ruined My Evening Plans

When I received a copy of The Go-Giver, I set aside the last forty-five minutes of the day to start reading the book. Good plan, right? However, my intent to quit reading at a reasonable hour and get to bed at my usual time disappeared. Within a few minutes, I knew that The Go-Giver had all the suspense of a top-line mystery novel. I couldn't stop until I had read the entire book. Thanks to Bob Burg and John David Mann for this stimulating parable, filled with enriching thoughts. Everyone who reads this book will re-examine his or her approach to business and customers.That alone will be a "powerful business idea," as the subtitle says.
