two proud fathers stood on the sidelines of a soccer
field. They were watching their young daughters play together, and it was only a matter of time before
they struck up a conversation about work. The taller of the two men was Danny Shader, a serial
entrepreneur who had spent time at Netscape, Motorola, and Amazon. Intense, dark-haired, and
capable of talking about business forever, Shader was in his late thirties by the time he launched his
first company, and he liked to call himself the
“old man of the Internet.” He loved building
companies, and he was just getting his fourth start-up off the ground.

individuals. Grant presents an evidence-based case for the counterintuitive link between generosity
and finishing first.”
“In one of the most engaging and insightful books I’ve read in years, Adam Grant makes a persuasive
argument for a counterintuitive approach to success. Give and Take is an instant classic that should be
read by anyone who wants to be more productive—and happier—in the office or at home.”
