A refreshing perspective reciprocity style,
This review is from: Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success (Hardcover)
Adam Grant is the new darling of the business literature and despite appearances his book should be placed at a safe distance from the personal development aisle. Indeed, the book is an academic study that addresses the impact of the style of reciprocity that we adopt in professional life. In this case, he defends,against the tide, a thesis , defining, classifying and demonstrating that an appropriate form of altruism is a key to success. By dint of examples, case studies, it leads the reader into the lives of individuals with fascinating stories. In terms of style, the writing is academic in a lighter version embellished with copious references. From a personal standpoint, I enjoyed the book I found refreshing and nuanced, I think I have incorporated some of his teachings and that is why I recommend it. Happy reading.
