The Go-Giver Influencer is a story about two young, ambitious businesspeople: Gillian Waters, the chief buyer for Smith & Banks, a midsize company that operates a national chain of pet accessory stores; and Jackson Hill, the founder of Angels Clothed in Fur, a small but growing manufacturer of all-natural pet foods. Each has something the other wants.
To Jackson, Smith & Banks represents the possibility of reaching more animals with his products - if he can negotiate terms and conditions that will protect his company's integrity. To Gillian, Angels Clothed in Fur could give her company a distinctive, uniquely high-quality line that will help them stand out from their competitors - if Angels Clothed in Fur can be persuaded to give them an exclusive.
At first, the negotiations are adversarial and frustrating. Then, coincidentally, Gillian and Jackson each encounter a mysterious yet kindly mentor. Over the next week, while neither one realizes the other is doing the same, both Gillian and Jackson learn the heart of both mentors' philosophies: The Five Secrets of Genuine Influence.
The story ends in a way that surprises everyone - and with lessons we can all apply in our efforts to resolve conflicts and influence others.

Good but not great
It has very good content and the final 'chapter' is an excellent part of the book since it summarizes everything in an organized manner. The allegory is good but overall I do not believe this matches the first book of the series which was excellent.
Please understand, the takeaways are very good but it seems the story isn't 'believable' reducing the impact and effectiveness of the lessons. I walk a few miles nearly every day and this was one of the 'listens'. A PDF of the points and outline would have made this a solid 4.
I would rate this a 3.5 if possible.
