Publisher's Summary

This classic motivational parable (over 500,000 copies sold worldwide) shows you how to make your own opportunities in life. Ever since its first printing, in 1921, The Go-Getter has inspired employees and entrepreneurs to take initiative, increase their productivity, and excel against the odds. In this audiobook, Bill Peck, a war veteran and double amputee, not only fights to find employment, but continually proves himself more than competent at the many difficult tests that are thrown his way. Peck persuades Cappy Ricks, the crusty founder of the Ricks Logging & Lumbering Company, to let him prove himself with a sales assignment that everyone knows can only lead to failure. When Peck, to everyone's surprise, beats his quota, Ricks hands him 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 his career as a successful manager. In a time when jobs are tight and managers lack the time 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 wonderfully read parable, employees at all levels will learn to rekindle the go-getter in themselves.

    Story
    "Think laterally, but ethically."

    The message about getting things done is articulated simply, which is comprehensive. However, this story was obviously written before we had a focus on business ethics.

    Story
    "Motivational"

    I read this book because it is part of the required reading requirements for Dave Ramsey's employees. I am not an employee but saw the the list his team published on Facebook and admire their work. I see why Dave suggests this book. It is motivational, especially if you are just starting a new job. It illustrates the attitude any manager should expect out of their employees. It also is short enough to re-read and get continual encouragement out of the book. Would recommend to anyone looking for a little pick-me-up in the workplace.

    "It shall be read."

    It was a little difficult to follow at first. But a very well told story to listen to.

    "Required Reading For My Sons"

    I have four boys. When they were still in high school, I had them all read this. It was a great primer to give them as a baseline for what a successful work ethic should be. Seeing how most people seem to be content will meeting or barely meeting expectations, they would easily stand out from the crowd. There were times I would be a "go getter" or times I would look for one for my business. It helps to know if you have people around you that have an understanding of what that means.

    "Fantastic story"

    I picked this book on the recommendation of Dave Ramsey and I wasn't disappointed. The story brought tears to my eyes - if you want to know what dedication, persistence and going through trials without giving up looks like, look no further. I shall remember this story for a long time to come. Highly recommended!
