The Go-Giver

I’m just finishing up “The Go-Giver” by Bob Burg and John David Mann. My review in two words: “Love it“.

The book is a ‘business parable’ (whatever that means) that gives some great advice on what the authors have titled the ‘Five Laws of Stratospheric Success”. The five laws are:

  • Law of value
  • Law of compensation
  • Law of influence
  • Law of authenticity
  • Law of receptivity

The laws boil down to one basic point…give more than you get. These laws are absolutely spot on with how I’ve tried to live my life. Life isn’t about how much can I get…its about how can I help others, what value can I bring to others and living according to my own ethical standards.

This is a great book and is a fast read. Pick it up and read it on your next plane ride….you’ll be glad you did.
