Reviews - What do customers think about The Go-Getter: A Story That Tells You How To Be One?
A great read Jul 7, 2008
Short, to the point, and teaches a lesson. This is the book that termed the phrase go-getter and really shows what it is to be one. The themes and story translate very well to todays era, every high school student should read this book or have it read during graduation.
Simple, brief, and to the point. A valuable lesson for all. Mar 29, 2008
If your intent of reading self help books is to discover a resounding message that will resonate in your life, I can certainly recommend The Go Getter. Its directness of message is only matched by its brevity. There is merely a lone principal to be uncovered within this book, but the message is timeless and profound.
This book garnered 4 stars from me because although the message is found among many other self help books, I can only think of a handful that display its portrayal and influence as well as The Go Getter.
Go-Getter Mania Feb 25, 2008
The message of the book is lived out in the execution of the purchase. Simple fast and efficient, being a Go-Getter is performing above expectations - - that is what occurred. Well done.
Convoluted!!! Don't Waste Your Time... Feb 13, 2008
This book was honestly the worst book I have ever tried to read. HORRIBLE!
Good story, great application Dec 14, 2007
This is a good story that has great application for a wide variety of people. We read this as a staff to help us remain motivated to work hard, to go beyond the average worker and really apply diligence to every obstacle we may find before us. The Go Getter is a story that many should read and implement into their lives. Good example of someone who overcame personal handicaps and difficulties to see that he did a honest day's work for his employer. The second story in this volume was not good and I don't recommend it, but the book is worth buying for the titled piece.
