Give and Take just might be the most important book of this young century. As insightful and entertaining as Malcolm Gladwell at his best, this book has profound implications for how we manage our careers, deal with our friends and relatives, raise our children, and design our institutions. This gem is a joy to read, and it shatters the myth that greed is the path to success.”
~Robert Sutton, author of The No *sshole Rule and Good Boss, Bad Boss

Give and Take is a truly exhilarating book—the rare work that will shatter your assumptions about how the world works and keep your brain firing for weeks after you've turned the last page.”
~Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

Give and Take is brimming with life-changing insights. As brilliant as it is wise, this is not just a book—it's a new and shining worldview. Adam Grant is one of the great social scientists of our time, and his extraordinary new book is sure to be a bestseller.”
~Susan Cain, author of Quiet

Give and Take cuts through the clutter of clichés in the marketplace and provides a refreshing new perspective on the art and science of success. Adam Grant has crafted a unique, ‘must have’ toolkit for accomplishing goals through collaboration and reciprocity.”
~William P. Lauder, Executive Chairman, The Estée Lauder Companies Inc.

Give and Take is a pleasure to read, extraordinarily informative, and will likely become one of the classic books on workplace leadership and management. It has changed the way I see my personal and professional relationships, and has encouraged me to be a more thoughtful friend and colleague.”
~Jeff Ashby, NASA space shuttle commander

“With Give and Take, Adam Grant has marshaled compelling evidence for a revolutionary way of thinking about personal success in business and in life. Besides the fundamentally uplifting character of the case he makes, readers will be delighted by the truly engaging way he makes it. This is a must read.”
~Robert Cialdini, author of Influence

Give and Take is a brilliant, well-documented, and motivating debunking of ‘good guys finish last’! I've noticed for years that generosity generates its own kind of equity, and Grant's fascinating research and engaging style have created not only a solid validation of that principle but also practical wisdom and techniques for utilizing it more effectively. This is a super manifesto for getting meaningful things done, sustainably.”
~David Allen, author of Getting Things Done

“Packed with cutting-edge research, concrete examples, and deep insight, Give and Take offers extraordinarily thought-provoking—and often surprising—conclusions about how our interactions with others drive our success and happiness. This important and compulsively-readable book deserves to be a huge success.”
~Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project and Happier at Home

“One of the great secrets of life is that those who win most are often those who give most. In this elegant and lucid book, filled with compelling evidence and evocative examples, Adam Grant shows us why and how this is so. Highly recommended!”

“Good guys finish first—and Adam Grant knows why. Give and Take is the smart surprise you can't afford to miss."

~Laszlo Bock, Senior Vice President of People Operations, Google

Give and Take dispels commonly held beliefs that equate givers with weakness and takers with strength. Grant shows us the importance of nurturing and encouraging prosocial behaviors.”
~Dan Ariely, author of Predictably Irrational

Give and Take defines a road to success marked by new ways of relating to colleagues and customers as well as new ways of growing a business.”
~Tony Hsieh, CEO, and author of Delivering Happiness

“A milestone! Well-researched, generous, actionable and important. Adam Grant has given us a gift, a hard-hitting book about the efficacy of connection and generosity in everything we do.”
~Seth Godin, bestselling author of The Icarus Deception and Tribes

Give and Take will fundamentally change the way you think about success. Unfortunately in America, we have too often succumbed to the worldview that if everyone behaved in their own narrow self-interest, all would be fine. Adam Grant shows us with compelling research and fascinating stories there is a better way.”
~Lenny Mendonca, Director, McKinsey & Co.

“Adam Grant, a rising star of positive psychology, seamlessly weaves together science and stories of business success and failure, convincing us that giving is in the long run the recipe for success in the corporate world. En route you will find yourself re-examining your own life. Read it yourself, then give copies to the people you care most about in this world.”
~Martin Seligman, author of Learned Optimism and Flourish

Give and Take presents a groundbreaking new perspective on success. Adam Grant offers a captivating window into innovative principles that drive effectiveness at every level of an organization and can immediately be put into action. Along with being a fascinating read, this book holds the key to a more satisfied and productive workplace, better customer relationships, and higher profits.”
~Chip Conley, Founder, Joie de Vivre Hotels and author, Peak and Emotional Equations

Give and Take is a game changer. Reading Adam Grant's compelling book will change the way doctors doctor, managers manage, teachers teach, and bosses boss. It will create a society in which people do better by being better. Read the book and change the way you live and work.”
~Barry Schwartz, author of The Paradox of Choice and Practical Wisdom

Give and Take is a new behavioral benchmark for doing business for better, providing an inspiring new perspective on how to succeed to the benefit of all. Adam Grant provides great support for the new paradigm of creating a ‘win win’ for people, planet and profit with many fabulous insights and wonderful stories to get you fully hooked and infected with wanting to give more and take less."
~Jochen Zeitz, former CEO and chairman, PUMA

Give and Take is a real gift. Adam Grant delivers a triple treat: stories as good as a well-written novel, surprising insights drawn from rigorous science, and advice on using those insights to catapult ourselves and our organizations to success. I can’t think of another book with more powerful implications for both business and life.”
~Teresa Amabile, author of The Progress Principle

“Adam Grant has written a landmark book that examines what makes some extraordinarily successful people so great. By introducing us to highly-impressive individuals, he proves that, contrary to popular belief, the best way to climb to the top of the ladder is to take others up there with you. Give and Take presents the road to success for the 21st century.”
~Maria Eitel, founding CEO and President of the Nike Foundation

“What The No *sshole Rule did for corporate culture, Give and Take does for each of us as individuals. Grant presents an evidence-based case for the counterintuitive link between generosity and finishing first.”
~Douglas Stone and Sheila Heen, coauthors of Difficult Conversations

“Adam Grant is a wunderkind. He has won every distinguished research award and teaching award in his field, and his work has changed the way that people see the world.

If you want to make your life better, read this book.”
~Tal Ben-Shahar, author of Happier

“In an era of business literature that drones on with the same-old, over-used platitudes, Adam Grant forges brilliant new territory. Give and Take helps readers understand how to maximize their effectiveness and help others simultaneously. It will serve as a new framework for both insight and achievement. A must read!”
~Josh Linkner, founder of ePrize, CEO of Detroit Venture Partners, and author of Disciplined Dreaming


New York Times and Wall
Street Journal 
bestseller from Wharton's top-rated professor

Named one of the best books of 2013 by Amazon, the Financial Times,
and the Wall Street Journal-- as well as one of Oprah's riveting
reads, Fortune's must-read business books, and the Washington
's books every leader should read.

For generations, we have focused on the individual drivers of success: passion,
hard work, talent, and luck. But today, success is increasingly dependent on
how we interact with others. It turns out that at work, 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 pioneering research as Wharton's youngest tenured professor, Adam
Grant shows that these styles have a surprising 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, Grant 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.

Praised by bestselling authors such as Susan Cain, Dan Pink, Tony
Hsieh, Seth Godin, Dan Ariely, Gretchen Rubin, David Allen, Dan Gilbert,
and Robert Cialdini-- along with senior leaders from Google, McKinsey, Merck,
Estee Lauder, Twitter, Nike, and NASA-- Give and Take highlights
what effective networking, collaboration, influence, negotiation, and
leadership skills have in common. This landmark book opens up an approach to
success that has the power to transform not just individuals and groups, but
entire organizations and communities.

Von M. Senn
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Saw the book in a bookstore in Amsterdam Airport. Bought it, read it, loved it.
Bought a couple more of them and gave them away to friends as a gift. Why?

1) I like self help books
2) I like when the "good people" win (ok, I may look a bit simple minded)
3) I like success (mine as well as success of others)

This book shows how the "good people" win and generate success beyond their own lives as well as for themselves. The book explains how selflessly helping of others ("giving") is not "outright stupid" in a capitalistic world. Yes, you can exhaust yourself and help without ever getting something back. Yes, you can be a money grubbing capitalist ("taker") and have - at least a short lived - success. This book shows why - with some minor tweaks - a giving attitude creates abundant success around you as well as for you.

Yes, this book asks for commitment, dedication, hard work and the other virtues we may have heard about in school. There is no way around it. At the same time it shows how these disciplines go along with joy, fun, good mood, and most importantly success.

Altruism is concept thought of and discussed at least since Auguste Comte in the 19th century. Adam Grant explains and refines it in an easy to read and easy to digest way. Watch out, the book might change your live or at least your way of living :-)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Lohnt es sich, zu teilen? 24. November 2014
Von Oliver Völckers TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Adam Grant ist ein Dozent, der bekannte kalifornische Software-Unternehmen und das US-Militär berät. In diesem Buch untersucht er das Verhältnis von Geben zu Nehmen und deren Auswirkungen auf den persönlichen Erfolg.

Wie in solchen populärwissenschaftlichen Ratgebern üblich bringt der Autor seine Argumente in Form zahlreicher einfacher Beispiele. Das lässt sich leicht lesen und ist einigermaßen überzeugend, auch wenn eine solche Beweisführung natürlich schwach ist. Die Storys aus dem US-amerikanischen Sport sind für europäische Leser wie mich unverständlich. Die Kapitel sind schwach gegliedert und der Autor kommt mitunter ins Schwafeln.

Adam Grant erklärt, das großzügige Menschen mitunter scheitern, andere aber sehr erfolgreich wären. Wer dagegen anderen etwas abnehmen wolle, könne eine Zeitlang erfolgreich sein, solange der einseitig ausnutzende Charakter nicht allgemein bekannt ist. Wer wiederum einen gleichmäßigen Handel betreibe, also eigene Leistungen gegen Leistungen anderer tausche, könne auch gut zurechtkommen.

Grant untersucht dann, warum der Erfolg der großzügigen Menschen so unterschiedlich ausfällt. Die Gescheiterten sind diejenigen, die sich bedenkenlos in der Art eines Helfer-Syndroms aufopfern und dabei ihre Kraft verlieren. Wer dagegen anderen regelmäßig hilft, ohne eine Gegenleistung zu erwarten, aber zugleich ohne sich ausnutzen zu lassen, der würde langfristig am erfolgreichsten sein.

As Beispiele nennt der Autor u.a. einen Augenoptiker, der ehrlich und konsequent im Kundeninteresse berät und dadurch am meisten Umsatz macht (S. 162).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Geben als (Miss)Erfolgsstrategie 23. September 2013
Adam Grant hat mit diesem Buch für Aufatmen bei mir gesorgt - zeigt er doch auf, dass "Nehmen" als Erfolgsstrategie nur bedingt funktioniert.
Grant lässt alle zu Wort kommen - die Geber, die Nehmer und die Matcher. Er führt durch die Geschichten erfolgreicher Menschen, stellt dar, weshalb "Geber" sowohl die Liste der Erfolgreichen, als auch der Erfolglosen anführen und macht Mut, mehr zu Geben. Dabei baut er auf wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen und bindet die Studien leicht verständlich in seine Texte ein. Da nimmt man Grant auch nicht den Teil über die Kommunikation (Powerless Communication) von Geberpersönlichkeiten übel, denn dieser wirkt im Vergleich zum restlichen Buch etwas flach und vereinfacht. Dies soll jedoch keinen Abbruch tun, denn insgesamt macht dieses Buch Lust einmal zu prüfen, welche Strategie man selbst gewählt hat, die des "Gebers", des "Nehmers" oder des "Matchers". In jedem Fall ist für erstere das Kapital über den Umgang mit "Gebern" sowie die Unterscheidung zwischen "selfless Givers" und "otherish Givers" empfehlenswert.

Adam Grant trifft mit seinem Buch einen Nerv der Zeit, wird doch in Zeiten von Banken- und Staatskrisen stets auch unterschwellig die Frage gestellt, was der Welt nutzt und ob Nehmen seliger denn Geben ist. Grant schafft es wissenschaftlich fundiert eine mögliche Antwort zu skizzieren.

Viel Freue beim Lesen& Anwenden!
