Give and Take

Mohnish Pabrai recommended  the book  “give and take” by Adam Grand.
Good book, in the same category as Influence : the psychology of persuasion by Cialdini.
 Thanks Mohnish for recommending  a good book.

with these books I often feel you can just read some extended reviews, and you have pretty much read the book. Looks like a book that would repeat points alot, and contain alot of filler evidence to back up the claim.
