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.
