055: Adam Grant Author of Give and Take | How to Succeed in Business by Being a Giver

rsz_smart_business_revolution_podcast_artwork_redThis week’s guest is the author of a phenomenal book, Give and Take (affiliate link), which has gotten a ton of attention.

The book was named one of the best books of 2013 by Amazon, the Financial Times, and the Wall Street Journal.

I read Give and Take and I loved it.

In my opinion, it is like a companion piece to How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. That book argues that we’ll all be more successful if we take interest in others, help others, and are valuable to others.

Adam GrantGive and Take actually provides the social science research to back up that argument.

But that’s not to say it’s a dry book. It actually has  fascinating stories throughout.

Adam Grant demonstrates why givers – people who are interested first in helping others – are more likely to rise to the top of the success ladder.

It’s a fascinating read and he was a fascinating guy to interview.
