In his book “Give and Take,” Adam Grant explores the different ways people rise through the ranks on their way to extreme success. Can you be a giver without being a doormat? Is it better to take anything you can without returning favors, or to “match” those who give you help?

Grant discusses how some of the most famous networkers and creative geniuses personalities helped them reach the top of their fields. Are you a giver? A taker? A matcher? What’s the best way to rise to the top?
