A groundbreaking look at why our interactions with others hold the key to success, from the bestselling author of Think Againand Originals
For generations, we have focused on the individual drivers of success: passion, hard work, talent, and luck. But in today’s dramatically reconfigured world, success is increasingly dependent on how we interact with others. In Give and Take, Adam Grant, an award-winning researcher and Wharton’s highest-rated professor, examines the surprising forces that shape why some people rise to the top of the success ladder while others sink to the bottom. Praised by social scientists, business theorists, and corporate leaders, Give and Take opens up an approach to work, interactions, and productivity that is nothing short of revolutionary.
Awesome book!!! I learned a lot from it.55
Amazing book. Love the clarity of givers, takers, matchers and fakers. Great confirmation for givers. For those that aren’t yet, it could be life changing (if they’re open to it).55
This book is about finding success by being a giver not a taker. Changed my perspective on a lot of things. I can tell you some stories on how I almost gave up on helping peopled and then I read this!55
That might be another book. Great ideas...thought provoking.45
Adam Grant combines great storytelling with scientific evidence that being a Giver can drive success and fulfillment. Each chapter makes you want to continue to read the one after. He also provides resources to put the principles of the book into action. One of the best books that I've read.55
