Overview

The Go-Getter is a book that needs to be added to every business person's essential reading list. Written in the 1920's it does not feel dated. Lessons included are applicable still today.

Although Kyne's tale of business smarts has been around for some time it doesn't feel dated. Indeed, lumber wholesaler Cappy Ricks's situation mirrors that of many business leaders today. It's a straightforward parable about a young war veteran who's handed an opportunity that will either make or break his career. If he accepts the job and pulls it off, he's a go-getter; if he fails, it's curtains. The kid'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.

Peter B. Kyne was an American novelist. Many of his works were adapted into screenplays starting in the silent era. He is credited in 110 films between 1914 and 1952.

Meet the Author

"PETER 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.[1] During World War I, he served as a captain in Battery A of the 144th field Artillery, known as the California Grizzlies." -- Wikipedia
