We’re continuing our 8 in 8 book giveaway that we think you should read. And because we’re not content to just tell you to read a book, we’re giving away the books we recommend. The next book we’re giving away is a little different than you might expect.
The book is titled: “The Twenty-Piece Shuffle” by Greg Paul. The subtitle is what might get your attention: “Why the Poor and the Rich Need Each Other.” It’s easy to imagine why the poor need the rich (duh, many of you reading our blog spend your time professionally trying to find people with money who will give to help poor people). But why do the rich need the poor?
ST: I have to say that I admire Greg for using the word “poor.” We’re often afraid of using the word “poor” because there might be a stigma attached.
Here’s a quick video you should watch. Greg tells about the “twenty piece shuffle” (it wasn’t what I would have thought) and he hints at some of the reasons why the rich and poor need each other.
We had the pleasure of hearing Greg speak a few weeks ago, he’s the real deal (you can tell from his haircut). And we got him to sign a book for you.
How can you get the book for free? Simple. Comment on a blog post or on a post on the Oneicity Facebook page by Monday December 13, and your name is in the hat for the giveaway. Everyone who comments will have a chance to get the book — just one chance per person — but don’t let that stop you — you know how we love to keep the conversation rolling.
And comments on any of our blog posts will get you in the running, so feel free to wander the halls and find posts from the past that you want to sound off about.
So what do you think, why do the rich need the poor? We love hearing what you think.
UPDATE 12/13/10: Tim Craig is the winner of this week’s 8-in-8 book giveaway. You’re going to love it and it’s going to change your thinking. Let us know!
