Book Contest: The Go-Giver by Bob Burg

by Michelle Salater on August 8, 2011


If you are in business for yourself or you work for someone else, you have got to read Bob Burg’s book The Go-Giver, A Little Story about a Powerful Business Idea.

At the suggestion of my client, Sandy Salle of Hills of Africa Travel, I purchased a few of Burg’s books, including Endless Referrals. While all of his work is packed full of powerful business advice, The Go-Giver spoke to me in a way few business books have. Yes, it’s well written, the story is engaging, and the ending even surprised me.

But there is more to it than that.

This little book (all 127 pages of it) opened my eyes to a new way of doing business and transformed the way I interact with those around me—in my business life and personal life. This is a book I will read over and over again, and suggest you do the same.

And I’m offering one lucky blog reader the chance to win a free copy of this amazing book, The Go-Giver.

    I’ve read a ton of business books in the past year and I work in PR/Social Media. One author I’ve always found completely refreshing with ideas from his ADD-no-limit way of thinking is Peter Shankman. I first read “Can We Do That: Outrageous PR Stunts That Work” and, while dated at this point, was hooked (and they weren’t shady, black hat stunts either). Shankman recently release Customer Service: New Rules for Social Media and speaks to the way people SHOULD have been acting online this whole time. Common sense isn’t so common and this second book is proving to be a huge help in my career.
