  • "Using his own cutting-edge research as a professor at Wharton Business School, Adam Grant shows how helping others can lead to greater personal success. He demonstrates how smart givers avoid becoming doormats, and why this kind of success has the power to transform not just individuals and groups, but entire organisations and communities."
  • "Everybody knows that hard work, luck and talent each plays a role in our working lives. In his landmark book, Adam Grant illuminates the importance of a fourth, increasingly critical factor - our reciprocity, the way we interact with others when exchanging value. GIVE AND TAKE changes our fundamental understanding of why we succeed, offering a new model for our relationships with colleagues, clients and competitors. It demolishes the argument of the 'me first' worldview and shows that the best way to get to the top is to focus not on your solo journey but on bringing others with you. Engaging, intriguing and filled with surprising success stories from history to Hollywood, GIVE AND TAKE presents an approach to work, team building, productivity and profitability that is nothing short of revolutionary. We have been taught to think that people who give without expecting anything in return are at risk of being exploited, or burning out, but the truth is that they are often the most successful people in any given field. Using his own cutting-edge research as a professor at Wharton Business School, Adam Grant shows how helping others can lead to greater personal success. He demonstrates how smart givers avoid becoming doormats, and why this kind of success has the power to transform not just individuals and groups, but entire organisations and communities."

  • "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. This book illuminates what effective networking, collaboration, influence, negotiation, and leadership skills have in common. The author, an award-winning researcher and Wharton's highest-rated professor, examines the surprising forces the shape why some people rise to the top of the success ladder while others sink to the bottom. In professional interactions, it turns out that most people operate as either takers, matchers, or givers. Whereas takers strive to get as much as possible from others and matchers aim to trade evenly, givers are the rare breed of people who contribute to others without expecting anything in return. Using his own groundbreaking studies, the author reveals that these styles have a dramatic impact on success. Although some givers get exploited and burn out, the rest achieve extraordinary results across a wide range of industries. Combining cutting-edge evidence with captivating stories, this book shows how one of America's best networkers developed his connections; why the creative genius behind one of the most popular shows in television history toiled for years in anonymity; how a basketball executive responsible for multiple draft busts transformed his franchise into a winner; and how we could have anticipated Enron's demise four years before the company collapsed, without ever looking at a single number."@en
