About this product
- DescriptionThe Go-Getter: A Story that Tells You How to Be One tells the tale of a man who made up his mind what he wanted and how he went about getting that which he desired. It is an intriguing story, well-written and hard to put down. Though this classic tale of business smarts penned by Peter B. Kyne has been around for some time, it doesn't feel dated at all. A straight-forward parable about a young war veteran who's handed an opportunity that will either make or break his career, The Go-Getter mirrors the challenges faced by many business leaders today. The owner of the business, lumber wholesaler Cappy Rick, had more troubles than a hen with ducklings. Cappy Rick has a tough assignment to dish out, and thinks Bill Peck might be the man for the job. First, however, he gives Peck the Degree of the Blue Vase, an ultimate test which has only been passed in two out of fifteen tries. If Peck passes the test, he's a go-getter. If he fails, it's curtains. Bill Peck's motto- it shall be done --sums up Kyne's point: even if you're unsure, say you can do it. Then figure out how to do it and make sure you succeed. Go above and beyond. Read this little treasure and you will discover that in all likelihood you are selling yourself short. You'd be amazed at what you can do, by simply deciding that it shall be done. The Go-Getter provides a great insight into what it takes to make our own fortunes. While most workers sit around waiting for a job description, The Go-Getter writes his or her own, then exceeds the same. This book offers motivation to look at finding opportunities, ways to make a way, take ownership, show perseverance, maximize the alternatives on hand, respect the instincts of others, and the strongest of all messages, the it shall be done attitude.
- Author BiographyPeter B. Kyne (1880-1957) was an American novelist who wrote between 1904 and 1940. Many of his works were adapted into screenplays starting in the silent era, particularly his first novel, The Three Godfathers, which was published in 1913 and proved to be a huge success. He is credited in 110 films between 1914 and 1952. When still under 18, he lied about his age and enlisted in Company L, 14th U.S. Infantry, which served in the Philippines from 1898-1899. The Spanish-American War and the following insurrection of General Emilio Aguinaldo provided background for many of Kyne's later stories. During World War I, he served as a captain in Battery A of the 144th field Artillery, known as the California Grizzlies. He was born and died in San Francisco, California.
