I want to live in a world where givers do well.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success (Hardcover)
First, a disclosure: I'm one of the people whose stories are featured in Adam Grant's book.
I don't read a lot of books, but I'm glad I read "Give and Take".
I agree with the reviewer who says the book is worth reading for the first and last chapters alone.
The first chapter explains why people who give are more successful in business.
The last chapter ("Actions for Impact") is a short, useful list of practical tools to apply the book's principles in life.
The rest of the book is filled with good stories, too, but those are a bonus.
I think overall this is an important book. If more business leaders succeed through principled giving of time, energy, connections, and knowledge, the world will be a better place.
I want to live in a world where more people have this kind of success.

The other chapter you forgot to highlight is the one on you. It's jaw dropping-ly captivating. And I don't flaunt with words.
Yes its all stories, but hey, our whole life is just bunch of stories and it's good to read a great story.
