From the acclaimed, best-selling authors of The Go-Giver, a new parable about leadership and the power of positive persuasion.

In this inspirational parable, we meet Ben, a young manager charged with persuading five hundred employees of a struggling chair manufacturer to agree to a merger as a way out of their financial woes. Facing what seems like an impossible uphill climb, Ben seeks the advice of Claire, an old friend, who introduces him to an eccentric elderly lady known simply as Aunt Elle.

Over the course of the week leading up to the crucial vote, Aunt Elle teaches Ben about the power of influence and positive persuasion. Ben also meets with each of the manufacturer's four top executives in an effort to sway them to his side, and instead comes away from each meeting with a different leadership lesson. But it's not until Ben reflects on his own experiences that he learns the critical principle so many people in positions of power fail to grasp: it's not about me, it's about you. Written with the same light touch that made The Go-Giver a hit, this book is sure to resonate with anyone who wants to understand genuine leadership and subtle influence.

    " Once again another great book from the combined efforts of Bob Burg and John David Mann. It's Not About You: A Little Story About What Matters Most in Business brings you back to the lessons learned from Pindar and offers some more great buisness advice that anyone can take away and feel they can better themselves. Such an easy quick read that you will not put this down and have it finished within the day. "

    " What's great about this book is that it is not written in the traditional business book format. Instead the author's key principles are shared through a narrative story. Delightful and interesting, it is worth reading. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Matt | 4/14/2013

    " There is nothing really insightful or substantive here. Aunty Zen provides some banal business advice in a coffee shop, while Ben tries to close an M&A deal. Don't waste your money. "
