In Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success the author writes that for generations we have been focusing on individual drivers of success like hard work, passion, luck and talent. In the modern-day corporate world, success has become increasingly dependent on our interaction with others. The author classifies the people at work as either takers, matchers, or givers. While takers are constantly on the cusp of trying to get as much as possible from others, and matchers try to trade evenly, givers are only a few who contribute to others without expecting to get anything in return. The author further mentions that while some givers get exploited and fade out, the others achieve extraordinary success across a wide range of industries. The book has an appropriate mix of captivating real-life stories and cutting-edge evidence from the author's years of research. Give and Take provides valuable insight into what networking, influence, collaboration, and effective leadership skills have in common. This book will greatly help those wishing to achieve success because it has to power to transform not just individuals but entire organizations.
