Give and Take

Give and Take

Adam M. Grant

Overview

Originals is Adam Grant's latest book, but Give And Take was published in 2013. While it's also about personality, its premise is slightly different. An original is something you can become over time, in case you aren't already. But you're already a giver, taker, or matcher, so with this one, it's about switching to the right category, instead of acquiring something that's totally new to you.

You know plenty of examples of people who match any of the three types already, we all do. There are those who are preoccupied with making sure they get their share, those who want everyone to have their fair share, and of course those who lead with generosity.

Interestingly, Adam Grant establishes that it's the very last category, the giver, who's predetermined to thrive – yes, even in the competitive world of business.
