The Go-Giver, written by Bob Burg, and John David Mann, has to be one of the best books ever written on the subject of relationships, especially business relationships. I have been so impacted by this book that it forms the foundation of the philosophies we endorse at the Relationship Marketing Center.
The book is written as an enjoyable parable that really drills home some important rules for being the kind of person that attracts quality people. You can read this book in one evening, but you will find the wisdom that you get from it affecting your attitude about dealing with people every day of your life.
Grab a copy and read the story carefully. I promise it will make a difference in your life.
