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.

Excellent

Reminded me of the story of the faithful servant in the Bible. Where the servant was faithful over a little thing and then rewarded by being a ruler over much. It taught me persistence in the midst of adversity and struggle and to push past pain to accomplish the goal.

Oldie but goodie.

This is a quick listen but a powerful message. The language certainly is somewhat dated to the early 20th century which in my opinion makes it somewhat entertaining, however the message that portrays is timeless. Don't give up on it after the 1st several minutes as it does start slightly slow and can be somewhat confusing but it ends up being excellent. I would highly recommend As the thought process in this book is priceless.

Wouldn’t buy or listen to it again.

Cute out-dated (old) story with one moral or point. Nothing new. Nothing game-changing.

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!
