3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Zev Saftlas on March 5 2004
Format: Hardcover
The one good thing I learned from this book is that to be successful you have to live with the motto "it shall be done".

While the author thinks this is a great motto to live by, I question if this is really a good motto for someone to live by.
For example if you want to make 10 sales each day, and you work 14 hours a day to make it happen every day for years on end - thereby forgetting about your family and relationships, you may have attained wealth, but you will not have a balanced life.
Ok. You get my point. It's good to be a go-getter, but you need a balance too.
I highly recommend you read Cheryl Richardson's book, Take Time For Your Life, together with this one.

It's okay. Probably would have had a greater impact back in 1918. There are far better and significantly more inspirational books out there.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a must read for businessmen, educators, coaches, and anyone who feels like they are in need of a lift! The parable in this book is a great motivator. In today's world where most everyone is trying to find the easy way out and pass the buck, this book teaches you to be on the lookout for what may seem like a dubious task, but in actuality is a "blue vase" test! I read this book in about two hours, easy reading! Should be required in all schools.

Format: Audio CD
A great little book that is a sort of "pick me up." I borrowed the book from the library on audio CD. It is a short little book, so even an unabridged audio was not very long. The Go Getter is a fanciful parable about the payoff of being a hard worker and being determined to get things done. The story is simple, direct, and motivational. It raises the listener's spirits without preaching. It was great fun and appropriate for any audience. The reader spoke clearly and with a feeling appropriate to the material. It was very comfortable listening.
