First published in 2007, The Go-Giver has become a classic business parable. It tells the story of an ambitious young man named Joe who yearns for success. Joe, a true go-getter, is starting to feel as though his goals are getting further and further away. So he enlists the help of a legendary consultant referred to by his devotees simply as the Chairman. Over the course of a week, Joe learns the Five Laws of Stratospheric Success and how to open himself up to the power of giving, Once Joe shifts his focus from getting to giving, and starts putting the interests of others first, he begins to experience unexpected returns.Imparted with wit and grace, The Go-Giver is a classic bestseller that brings to life the old proverb "Give and you shall receive."

As someone who has made a living as an entrepeneur for the last decade, I took several valuable lessons from this book. It has since become one of the books I recommend any of my clients or colleagues who want to improve their knowledge and understanding of business, and I've gotten great feedback from freshly minted entrepeneurs as well as industry veterans alike.
I don't find it to be 5-star mostly because it is so brief and simplified. (Silly me, the size of a book doesn't determine it's value, but I can't get past that emotional reaction.) Then again, I suspect it's one I'll reread a few times and as I internalize it's teachings, it may earn that last star over time. If you've read a lot of self-development literature, much of the book won't be new or surprising. But even for me, who has read a lot of this genre, one or two lines stood out as clue-by-fours of "oops, I TOTALLY do that." For me, clue-by-fours (ie, an insight that smacks you upside the head) usually make any book worth their price.
I still wish it were a little longer -- just to elaborate on the how-to of changing some of the negative habits into positive ones -- but overall, worth it.
I will keep this in mind as a gift to a young teenager or business minded individual feeling very confident that it is one of the best gift one can give and receive...the kind of book you would read over and over...just like my bible...
