Give and Take: Why Helping Others Drives Our Success

We have emphasized the personal factors that contribute to success for generations: passion, effort, talent, and good fortune. But in today’s drastically altered environment, our ability to succeed depends more and more on how we relate to others. Adam Grant, a well-regarded professor at Wharton and an award-winning researcher, explores the unexpected variables that determine why some people climb to the top of the success ladder while others fall to the bottom in his book Give and Take. Give and Take is hailed as a breakthrough approach to work, interactions, and productivity by social scientists, business theorists, and corporate executives.
