Give and Take

Why Helping Others Drives Our Success

A groundbreaking look at why our interactions with others hold the key to success, from the bestselling author of 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.
From the Hardcover edition.
Rezension
'" Give and Take just might be the most important book of this young century. As insightful and entertaining as Malcolm Gladwell at his best, this book has profound implications for how we manage our careers, deal with our friends and relatives, raise our children, and design our institutions. This gem is a joy to read, and it shatters the myth that greed is the path to success."-Robert Sutton, author of The No sshole Rule and Good Boss, Bad Boss " Give and Take is a truly exhilarating book-the rare work that will shatter your assumptions about how the world works and keep your brain firing for weeks after you've turned the last page."-Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind " Give and Take is brimming with life-changing insights. As brilliant as it is wise, this is not just a book-it's a new and shining worldview. Adam Grant is one of the great social scientists of our time, and his extraordinary new book is sure to be a bestseller."-Susan Cain, author of Quiet " Give and Take cuts through the clutter of clichés in the marketplace and provides a refreshing new perspective on the art and science of success. Adam Grant has crafted a unique, 'must have' toolkit for accomplishing goals through collaboration and reciprocity."-William P. Lauder, Executive Chairman, The Estée Lauder Companies Inc." Give and Take is a pleasure to read, extraordinarily informative, and will likely become one of the classic books on workplace leadership and management. It has changed the way I see my personal and professional relationships, and has encouraged me to be a more thoughtful friend and colleague."-Jeff Ashby, NASA space shuttle commander"With Give and Take , Adam Grant has marshaled compelling evidence for a revolutionary way of thinking about personal success in business and in life. Besides the fundamentally uplifting character of the case he makes, readers will be delighted by the truly engaging way he makes it. This is a must read."-Robert Cialdini, author of Influence " Give and Take is a brilliant, well-documented, and motivating debunking of 'good guys finish last'! I've noticed for years that generosity generates its own kind of equity, and Grant's fascinating research and engaging style have created not only a solid validation of that principle but also practical wisdom and techniques for utilizing it more effectively. This is a super manifesto for getting meaningful things done, sustainably."-David Allen, author of Getting Things Done "Packed with cutting-edge research, concrete examples, and deep insight, Give and Take offers extraordinarily thought-provoking-and often surprising-conclusions about how our interactions with others drive our success and happiness. This important and compulsively-readable book deserves to be a huge success."-Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project and Happier at Home "One of the great secrets of life is that those who win most are often those who give most. In this elegant and lucid book, filled with compelling evidence and evocative examples, Adam Grant shows us why and how this is so. Highly recommended!"-William Ury, coauthor of Getting to Yes and author of The Power of a Positive No "Good guys finish first-and Adam Grant knows why. Give and Take is the smart surprise you can't afford to miss."-Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness " Give and Take is an enlightening read for leaders who aspire to create meaningful and sustainable changes to their environments. Grant demonstrates how a generous orientation toward others can serve as a formula for producing successful leaders and organizational performance. His writing is as engaging and enjoyable as his style in the classroom."-Kenneth Frazier, Chairman, President, and CEO of Merck & Co."In this riveting and sparkling book, Adam Grant turns the conventional wisdom upside-down about what
