Underestimating Adam Grant’s book would be an easy mistake. A superficial summary would sound like a set of homilies: It is better to give than to receive, be nice to other people, and so on. However, you should look past that first impression because Grant’s examples and research provide empirical support for his argument that – properly understood – giving offers a superior way to do business. getAbstract recommends this good-hearted look beyond the Golden Rule to managers, leaders, and those interested in ethics and in making the world a better place.
