Give and Take: Why Helping Others Drives Our Success Review


  • 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.

The book came with pages crumpled in the middle. Had I not needed “Give and Take” right away for a class, I would have returned the copy. The condition was not what I would have expected from a new book, and not consistent with the standards Amazon usually holds itself to.By Stephen H.

99% of this book is common sense–basically telling people to be thoughtful and generous to others. Again, common sense but we all need to be reminded of how important it is to be a giver not just at work, but in the workplace.By M. Meyers
