GIVE AND TAKE A Revolutionary Approach to Success

by | Read by Brian Keith Davis

Business & Finance • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Brian Keith Davis's enthusiasm for this sweeping study of human character by a Wharton business professor makes this audiobook fly. The premise is that people in organizational settings are mainly givers, takers, or people who seek fair interactions, matchers. Fascinating character portraits and extended case histories like that of taker Ken Lay, of Enron, provide ample narrative momentum. Davis's urgency is skillfully subtle and always in service of the author's achievement in delineating these personality types. More illuminating than instructive, Grant's book makes the case that a giving orientation can lead to more success than ruthless self-interest, provided that givers look after their own interests by carefully managing the way they negotiate, network, manage their time, and communicate with others.
