Book Review: Give and Take

Give and Take by Adam Grant

Give and Take was the first book I ever bought and read. The reason this book is special to me is that it started my book reading journey. Back in 2015, I was window shopping and came across a small bookstore in a mall, and I bought this book from there.

Anyway, I made my first book review on YouTube. The book’s name is Give and Take, and the author is Adam Grant. Please watch the video and leave your feedback in the comments section.

  1. Hi Hassaan,

    It has been a pleasure to watch you grow buddy. Starting off in 2012 with freelancing, you began on the right foot and stuck to the fundamentals. Over time, success finds people who do the right things with the right energy over the long haul.

    I enjoyed your video review and feel you are doing great. I like your own book review plan, because it fits you well. Digging the concept behind the book too; the title says it all. Much success has been had by free givers, as the taking grows easier if you give freely with your time and talents.


    1. Hey Ryan,

      I’m glad you enjoyed the book review. I have no idea how to review books; I just love the hustle of doing stuff and learning along the way. Give and Take will always be a special book for me. It will always remind me that I started off something that I had not done it before. Plus, it taught me how to become a giver and still win.

      I often quote Arthur Ashe; he said, “Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.”

      I think the quote summarizes everything!

      By the way, I loved your blog post on “blog commenting” because it resonates with my way of doing it and you pointed out the thing I strongly believe in, and everyone should pay attention to it.

  2. Great video review even being the first timer. It takes a lot of guts to come in front of the camera and talk to the whole world, not just with the family members. 🙂

    The Book title “Give and Take” says it all and describe well about it. Will do look for your next one!


    1. Hello Navin,

      Thank you so much. I appreciate it. I’m obsessed with trying out things and testing new stuff. It comes naturally to me. So I figured out that video is something I should pay attention to in 2018, and that’s what I’ll be doing along the way.

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment!

  3. Hi Hassaan,

    Nice to see you doing some book reviews.

    This is a great one to start with because it’s where every business needs to begin.

    You always get far more out of “giving” and staying focused on process… than on “taking” and looking for results.

    Congratulations on your new excursion into book reviews.

    You’re off to a great start and I’m sure 2018 will bring you many great rewards.


    1. Hi Donna,

      Thank you so much for your comment. I always pay attention to your words.

      As far as book reviews are concerned, I’m excited about this. Books open up a whole new world in front of you — I wasn’t a big fan of reading books until two years ago. “Give and Take” kind of started things off for me. I’m happy. It’s stunning that how much value lies in the books.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing the nuggets.
