Interview with John David Mann the Co-author of “The Go-Giver”
This week I really enjoyed watching the video which I have shared below. My friends Chris and Susan Beesley interviewed John David Mann who is the co-author of the international bestseller The Go-Giver.
Mann is an award-winning author whose titles also include the New York Times bestseller The Red Circle, The Latte Factor, Flash Foresight, Nautilus Award winner A Deadly Misunderstanding, Taiwan’s Golden Book Award for Innovation the You Call the Shots.
The Go-Giver tells the story of an ambitious young man named Joe who yearns for success. Joe is a true go-getter, though sometimes he feels as if the harder and faster he works, the further away his goals seem to be.
One day, desparate to land a key sale at the end of a bad quarter, he seeks advice from the enigmatic Pindar, a legendary consultant referred to by many devotees sinply as the Chairman. Over the next week, Pindar introduces Joe to a series of successful ‘go-givers’ who teach him how to open himself up to the power of giving.
Joe learns that changing his focus from getting to giving – putting others’ interests first and continually adding value to their lives – ultimately leads to unexpected results.
This book had been recommended to me by several people but I admit I had never read it. However the interview was so interesting that I immediately downloaded the book and read it in one sitting. I’ll write about it in my next blog post on Boomers Next Step Enjoy the interview!
