All are excellent.
This book, now more clearly connected to the other two in the Go-Giver brand, is a business parable. While there are connections between the three, you can certainly read this without reading the other two (though after you do, I’ll bet you will want to read the others as well).
All focus on the essence of their Go-Giver philosophy that shifting your emphasis from a ‘me’ focus to an ‘other’ focus leads to great and often unexpected returns. That is a philosophy that is not always evident with leaders today.
I am recommending this book to you for three reasons:
I agree with and strive to lead by the principles included.
The parable approach makes the ideas easy to understand and remember.
This is perhaps the most clearly stated treatise of servant leadership that has been written.

Kudos to Bob Burg and John David Mann for brilliantly delivering a powerful message in a way that will provide lasting change that will add value to every aspect of your life. If I could give this book 100 stars, it would not be enough.
Full Disclosure: I recently interviewed John David Mann for our Inspire Nation Show.
I can't say enough positive things about these books. I'm a book lover, and I love a lot of books, hence my glowing, positive reviews. But the Go-Giver books are the first books I say buy copies for friends, family, and for everyone. For they'll make you a better person, and help you spring out of the dog-eat-dog paradigm into the new reality, that we're all in this together, and that it truly is all-for-one and one-for-all.
What a special book, and a page burner too! I had so much fun with this read, and fed lots of positive ideas for my psyche...not to mention GREAT ideas for leadership!!!
