Become the change you want to see

I find the paraphrase of Ghandi's quote that I used in my headline the perfect summation of this book's intent. In the style of a parable, The Go-Giver tells how an ordinary man learns to be extraordinary by giving the best of what he has to offer in areas he had previously thought irrelevant or unimportant to his perceived goals. Showing the power of one person to empower others to excellence and fulfillment by choosing to come alongside another individual in focused contact over a short period of time and exposing him to life-altering truths, this entertaining and quick read has the potential to change the world by starting with the reader himself. Though pivotal to the book's focus, success is almost a secondary byproduct to the fullness of life possible through committed application of the lessons it contains. Don't miss reading this volume, and be prepared to find you will want to keep copies handy to share with many others.

Must Read - The Go-Giver

My husband first received a copy of the Go-Giver from his boss. He recommended it to me, then I recommended it to my boss. The whole company has read it already. In the spirit of giving, I have already given over 20 copies away, and I intend to give more away. The Go-Giver is a gem of a book, profiling successful people in all walks and stages of their lives and careers. It is easy reading, but very impactful... a great book to take on a long flight or to read during lunch breaks or airport layovers. Enjoy.
