    Your true worth is determined by how much you give in value than you take in payment Bob Burg John Mann, The Go GiverSo, full disclosure I hate self help business books I also exist in a world where these books get passed around, given as gifts, pitched, promoted, etc., so it is hard to not find a couple constantly sitting on my shelf DESPITE my best efforts This month I m trying to read a book a day Just to see if I can do it Right now, however, I m reading Chernow s Washington A Life 927 pages It is practically impossible to read that book in one day, so as I read a hundred plus pages, I have to add a small novella or small non fiction book every day so I don t miss a day finishing a book So, desperate for a small book, I grabbed this one My boss gave it to me several years ago and I blew it off Was it good Sure It was basically a parable about business Karma The idea is if you give value, authenticity, etc you will receive I believe that So, the book basically just confirmed the way I do things It probably also sharpened the way I think about it Like I ve said with other self help books, even one this week The War of Art Break Through the Blocks Win Your Inner Creative Battles , most of these books can be properly and fully summarized in one page No need for a 100 page parable Here is the summary First Law Law of Value Your worth is determined by how much you give in value than you take in payment.Second Law Law of of Compensation Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how ell you serve them.Third Law Law of Influence Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people s interest first.Fourth Law Law of Authenticity The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself.Fifth Law Law of Receptivity The key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving.Or as my father would summarize When your not a pushy asshole, people trust you When they trust you, they do business with you.

    just finished reading what is now one of my all time favorite books.The title of the book is The Go Giver, written by Bob Burg and John David Mann This parable about a salesman named Joe, who wants to succeed in a big way, realizes that he is not doing as well as he wishes In a moment of desperation, he asks a colleague for the name of a man who he thinks may help him.When Joe meets with the man, nicknamed The Chairman, he is in for a big surprise Over the course of a week, he learns a different lesson every day He commits to practicing each lesson at least once each day.Here are the five lessons, also known as the Five Laws of Stratospheric Success The Law of ValueYour true worth is determined by how much you give in value than you take in payment The Law of CompensationYour income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them The Law of InfluenceYour influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people s interests first The Law of AuthenticityThe most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself The Law of ReceptivityThe key to effective giving is to stay open to receivingIn practice, these five lessons changed Joe s life I won t tell you how the book ends, because I highly recommend that everyone reads it for themselves, but I can say that the ending was much better than I ever expected.

    A book with great principles, not just about about business, but about life Unfortunately, those principles are presented through some really bad dialogue The book would have been powerful had the authors researched real life stories of people who had applied these principles.

    If I had the money, I d buy a copy of this book and send it to every person I know, wrapped in gold foil paper This isn t just a business book It applies whether you re a volunteer, in a romantic relationship, or with your coworkers I just used one idea in the book that helped me work through a conflict that has been around for three years and that I thought couldn t be resolved I tried the idea as almost a last ditch effort and with little hope that it would work I am surprised and very happy In fact, I think I m becoming friends with someone I d come to see as difficult to work with.This book teaches principles that you can even use with your kids, whether they re 2 or 20 Yes, you have to simplify them for your two year old, and yet they work.If you feel stuck in a pattern of arguing with someone or feel frustrated that you can t seem to get ahead at work, go get this book from your library or bookstore Take a chance and do what it suggests for a week as an experiment If you don t like the results, you can quit and forget about it That s what I did, and it worked.The audio edition of this book is great because it s read by the author, a man who obviously understands the message So whether you like print or the spoken word, there s something here for you.

    Obviously this wasn t a book for entertainment but for education The points made were good and in the realm of common sense The people involved have a habit of believing that the world has the wrong idea about everything and these people have all the answers The events that lead to success were all to fanciful I feel it caters to the naive, someone who feels that they have been lied to and now found the way It gives a light of hope to whomever wishes to believe that they have the wrong idea.

    Required reading for my job at the time Stories that teach you get for giving than getting If you give to everyone you meet you will ultimately be rewarded along your career path This book was entertaining and highly readable and mostly intended for people in sales although the principals here can be applied to many different aspects of employment and life.

    Very unique delivery, it felt like I was reading a story that was similar to where I am right now instead of being told what to do by some big business man who already is successful where I want to be but feel no connection with I m Joe right now, not Bill Gates Haha.

    I suppose there are those who will feel this book is trite, easy or feel good And it is a couple of those things It is an easy book to read a nice and fairly short story And it is somewhat feel good, although I m sure many readers felt a few pangs here and there as they recognized themselves on the page However, as with most books that are about who we are, individually and fundamentally, the challenge is the practice My recommendation is read the book and decide if it has value for you And if it does read it again slowly and actually take the journey along with Joe It will be interesting to see what comes of it.
