Description

Also includes the Bonus Book A Message to Garcia by Elbert Hubbard

A classic parable of ambition and entrepreneurial spirit that has imparted key lessons in success to generations of readers.

First published in 1921, Peter B. Kyne’s The Go-Getter: A Story That Tells You How to Be One is a humorous parable of determination and ambition that has proved itself to be a timeless classic, inspiring readers to approach their goals—whether personal or professional—with tenacity and dedication.

The Go-Getter tells the story of Bill Clegg, an ambitious young salesman, who is set on a seemingly impossible task when his boss, a crusty old-timer named Cappy Riggs, decides to test his mettle. Charismatic and incredibly determined, Bill charmed his way into Riggs’s employment and is resolved to meet his boss’s expectations—no matter what may ensue. Along the way, Clegg develops and demonstrates the critical values of drive, determination, honesty, and integrity. With delightfully old-fashioned prose and a modern message of drive and determination, The Go-Getter is a truly timeless illustration of the perseverance and resolve that are required to fuel true ambition.
