A groundbreaking look at why our interactions with others hold the key to success, from the bestselling author of Think Again and 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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
If you’ve got a generous spirit, you have the tools to do better in business. As professor and author Adam Grant illustrates in this insightful audiobook, the “me first” philosophy of getting ahead usually doesn’t yield great results. As he explains it, there are two personality types in business—givers and takers—and it’s the givers who come out ahead. We loved Grant's tips on everything from collaboration and communication to his helpful “five-minute favor.” Brian Keith Lewis’s narration gives the real-life business examples and expert analysis an easygoing guy-next-door vibe while still sounding smart and authoritative. This invigorating listen is incredibly useful, and it also made us feel great. After all, it’s good to know that nice folks can finish first.
