Book Description

Why givers - not takers or matchers - are life's most successful winners. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Back Cover

We are taught to think that people who give without expecting anything in return are at risk of being exploited - but the truth is that they are often the most successful.

Everybody knows that hard work, luck and talent each plays a role in getting ahead. In his landmark book, Adam Grant illuminates the importance of a fourth factor. He shows that the best way to get to the top is not to focus on your solo journey, but on bringing others with you.

Filled with surprising success stories from history to Hollywood, Give and Take demolishes the 'me first' worldview and presents an approach to work, team-building and productivity that is nothing short of revolutionary.

Using his own cutting-edge research as a professor at Wharton Business School, Adam Grant shows how smart givers avoid becoming doormats, and why his route to success has the power to transform not just individuals, but entire organisations and communities.

--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
