Author: Peter B. Kyne
The classic motivational parable (over 500,000 copies sold worldwide) that
shows you how to make your own opportunities in life, updated for the
modern reader by bestselling business author Alan Axelrod Ever since its
first printing by William Randolph Hearst in 1921, The Go-Getter has
inspired employees and entrepreneurs to take initiative, increase their
productivity, and excel against the odds. Now, more than half a million
copies later, Alan Axelrod, bestselling author of Patton on Leadership and
Elizabeth I, CEO, updates the tale to address today's most pressing work
issues. In The Go-Getter, Bill Peck, a war veteran, persuades Cappy Ricks,
the influential founder of the Rick's Logging & Lumbering Company, to let
him prove himself by selling skunk wood in odd lengths-a job that everyone
knows can only lead to failure. When Peck goes on to beat his quota, Rick
hands Peck the ultimate opportunity and the ultimate test: the quest for an
elusive blue vase. Drawing on such classic values as honesty,
determination, passion, and responsibility, Peck overcomes nearly
insurmountable obstacles to find the vase and launch hia career as a
successful manager. In a time when jobs are tight and managers are too busy
for mentoring, how can you maintain positive energy, take control of your
career, and prepare yourself to ace the tests that come your way? By
applying the timeless lessons in this compulsively readable parable,
employees at all levels can learn to rekindle the go-getter in themselves.
