Get Bet­ter at Getting Bet­ter ad­vo­cates that the se­cret to suc­cess lies in con­tin­u­ously im­prov­ing our­selves. There­fore, it is not only about how good you are, but also about how ef­fec­tive a model you have for your con­tin­ual growth. The au­thor terms this the ‘Get Bet­ter Model’, or GBM. This model is made up of four com­po­nents — getting bet­ter by your­self, getting bet­ter by lever­ag­ing oth­ers, mak­ing oth­ers bet­ter, and mak­ing and im­ple­ment­ing a get bet­ter plan.

The au­thor, a cor­po­rate vet­eran, uses his ex­pe­ri­ence in the cor­po­rate world to lay down in this book, his idea of an ef­fec­tive strat­egy for suc­cess. The book is divided into five sec­tions, and the four com­po­nents of the GBM model are dealt with in a sec­tion each. The au­thor also de­votes space to dis­cuss the MBA vs non-MBA co­nun­drum, and the ef­fect of this on ca­reer growth and ca­reer life cy­cles.

The book caters to all work­ing pro­fes­sion­als and stu­dents, as well as oth­ers look­ing to find a prac­ti­cal plan to im­prove them­selves and ap­proach greater lev­els of suc­cess.
