Summary

Radical generosity is the against-the-grain secret weapon of real influencers, and it will allow you to boost referrals, retention rates, and ROI like few other strategies.

But be warned, gifts with strings attached backfire. There is a right, and wrong, way to give.

John Ruhlin has gifted on behalf of everyone from Forbes Magazine to the Fortune 500, and his tactics lead to appreciative responses and wide-open check books.

Through poignant personal stories and data-backed evidence, Ruhlin breaks down how anyone - from mail clerk to managing director - can master the magic of Giftology with these and more:

  • Mastering reciprocity, the hidden bottom line booster
  • Laser-targeting whom to give a gift and when to use thrift
  • Uncovering your client's inner circle and becoming part of it

Give wholeheartedly to Giftology and reap the rewards of an expanding business and fruitful relationships, professional and personal alike.

Great concept but left me wanting more

This book helped me to think harder about gifting and the positive byproducts associated with giving a quality gift, but it felt like mostly a promotion for his company.

I would have liked to have seen different and more gift examples... in the whole book he only mentions about 10 gifts that he and his partners have used. Also, the continual mention of bonus info if I go to his site and download the resources felt manipulative.... i bought the damn book so give me the info without jumping through hoops.

I like the idea, but overall it was lacking actionable steps and resources to make the process of "giftology" easy to implement.

I do not recommend this book.

Has one beautiful sentence

The idea is amazing and the anecdotes are somewhat inspiring, but sadly, there isn't that much that goes into the concept. The whole book can be comprehensively summarized in pretty much two or three sentences.

No bonus but an okay story of gift experiences

I found it to be a somewhat interesting story, but nothing overly exciting. There is value in the content but the author is short on details and rather sends you to his website for "bonus information" about 10 times throughout the book. I actually went looking for this promised bonus information, and after having to register for the newsletter, unfortunately couldn't find it. I feel a bit cheated.

Website push

Some good information, but too much push to go to www.whatever.com/bonus. It's at the end of every section and gets annoying like a pushy salesman.

game and life changer

if there is one principle above all others that humans must remember it is that "what we do for ourselves dies alone with us, and what we do for others remains and is imortal." the author expresses this teaching elegantly through the experiences in his life, and shows how we may apply this wisdom daily within our our own relationships. super book, thank you!!

This concept should change the marketing game!

This is really about building relationships from a new angle. It's about the person and their passions and not about you! John really understand what this takes and is a master of the craft! Excellent read!

Great story telling

I’m inspired to give gifts to clients, friends and mentors to cultivate relationships. If you looking for a book to motivate you I recommend Giftology.
