Today is Wold Book Day and Amazon is making books available for free today. I don't read as often as I would like but I thought today would be a good day to share a book that changed my perspective on life. Ironically this book was a gift from someone whom I believed had zero good intentions for me. I couldn't have been more incorrect about that person. The Go-Giver is my favorite book and I recommend it to everyone who wants to maximize their potential in business and in relationships period. If you consider yourself a Go-Getter you will look at life through a different pair of eyes after you read this book. Here is a portion of the official book description from thegogiver.com

The Go-Giver tells the story of an ambitious young man named Joe who yearns for success. Joe is a true go-getter, though sometimes he feels as if the harder and faster he works, the further away his goals seem to be. And so one day, desperate to land a key sale at the end of a bad quarter, he seeks advice from the enigmatic Pindar, a legendary consultant referred to by his many devotees simply as the Chairman.

Joe learns that changing his focus from getting to giving—putting others’ interests first and continually adding value to their lives—ultimately leads to unexpected returns.

Imparted with wit and grace, The Go-Giver is a heartwarming and inspiring tale that brings new relevance to the old proverb “Give and you shall receive.”
