The Go-Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann. It's a short book and a very fast read. You could easily finish it within a week, and day if you have a 2-3 hours available. Our real estate agent share this book with us and we are so thankful he did. It's been a blessing in our life.
The subtitle describes the book well: "A little story about a powerful business idea". So, as I'm sure you guessed, the book is written as a short story. It starts off with a man who is a "go-getter" - very driven, works hard, but just can't seem to get ahead. More importantly, something seems to be lacking in his life. He asks another man in the office how he is so successful without looking like he's working hard. He gets directed to another, this time famously successful, man and his journey begins. It's the classic story where he gets spoon fed information and you get to grow along with him. It reminds me of The One Minute Millionaire which was co-authored by Mark Victor Hansen (the Chicken Soup guy). So if you liked those, you'll love this story.
By the end of the book, you learn about 5 laws. These are guidelines to help you conduct yourself in the workplace. I won't go into the five laws (you have to read the book to see them), but they all revolve around giving more of yourself to others. And not because you expect them to pay you back, but because it's the right thing to do.
Jessi, who is a natural gift giver, loved this book. I think she might have read it twice just to make sure she got it. The book laid the framework for us to talk about our business - to make sure we are giving instead of taking. It was a great conversation and resulted in a change of how we conduct business. I know it made Jessi's last Women's Night a success.
Like I said, it's a fast read and worth your time if you're looking for a way to reach another level of success in your life. Almost oddly, you won't find a reference to God and talk about how he blesses those who give. But I would say the message is implied throughout the book.
