As the various foreign-language translations of The Go-Giver make their way into their various marketplaces, we are starting to hear from readers from around the world, and the more we do, the more we see confirmation of this basic truth: Human beings are human beings.
Bob and I are always delighted when we hear news from distant parts of the world about ways our little book has helped people and added value to their lives. What is even more delightful is how familiar that feedback tends to be.
“I have read your book Go-Giver and it has changed my way of thinking and doing business. I am going to buy 25 copies of your book to give it to all my staff because it does make a lot of sense and we all have to act toward it.” — Waleed Hamad, Director of I.T., Al-Ahli Hospital, Doha, Qatar
“All the way out here in Cape Town, South Africa, I am probably your ten millionth reader who has just finished reading your amazing Go-Giver. And all I want to say is, thank you!” — Maggie Casewell, Capetown
“The word giving is my biggest lesson in life and by reading your book we become friends, even though we haven’t meet yet, because finding friends is easy, but finding mind-friends it’s a gift. Thank you for giving me a great moment, reading your book felt so deep and heart inspiring, especially for a young man like me how looking every day to higher my own mind standard.” — Eitan Azaria, Israel
“I’ve made posters for my office wall with the points I need to remember. Tomorrow, our staff are all stopping work to listen to The Go-Giver. A new staff member starts Tuesday and his induction will commence with The Go-Giver. My husband already has a copy of The Go-Giver organised to give to another businessman he talks to. This is not something we can keep to ourselves.” — Tricia Velthuizen, Australia
“Good day! I am a reader of Go-Giver. Thanks for your sharing of such great idea. I love your book and will act the principles in live.” — Arain Yu Yan Wai, Hong Kong
Even when from widely disparate cultures, and with different customs and languages, those traits, aspects and experiences we share in common are vastly more in evidence than those that separate us.
People are people.
