Welcome to my book notes of The Go-Giver by the authors Bob Burg and John David Mann.
This book puts an end to the blind, wrong-headed and misguided pursuit of success and instead is the key to opening the treasure crate.
An absolute short and powerful must-read book.
While the key concepts and ideas of this book are very short and easy to summarize, the true value of this book is beyond the measurable.
Let's dive in.
- Title: The Go-Giver

- The book in one sentence: The more you give, the more you get.
The "5 Laws of Stratospheric Success"
The Law Of Value
Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment.
The Law Of Compensation
Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them.
The Law Of Influence
Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people's interests first.
The Law Of Authenticity
The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself.
The Law Of Receptivity
The key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving.
What's The Go-Giver Mentality?
You will be the most successful if you focus on serving others first and always think of the value you can provide for them.
Does That Mean I Should Forget About My Compensation (aka Money)?
- stop complaining
- stop "finding roadblocks"
- stop negativity
- stop looking for and coming up with "reasons why not"
- develop new, valuable skills
- surround yourself with successful people
- focus on personal development and growth
This Will Only Work For You If...
... you consistently apply these ideas.
This concludes my book notes of The Go-Giver.
