"There's this theme that we call the 'Pindar Principle," which is articulated in all "The Go-Giver" books, and it's the heart of ''The Go-Giver Marriage'...which is this idea that the more you give, the more you have." — John David Mann, co-author (with his wife, Ana Gabriel Mann) of "The Go-Giver Marriage"

Curt Mercadante interviews Ana Gabriel Mann and John David Mann, co-authors of The Go-Giver Marriage: A Little Story about the Five Secrets to Lasting Love.

For more than a decade, readers of the bestselling Go-Giver series (of which John David Mann is the co-author) have been clamoring for a book on how to apply the philosophy at the heart of The Go-Giver to their personal relationships. From Mann and his wife, Ana Gabriel Mann, a clinically trained therapist, this long-awaited sequel shows readers how to unlock a deeply satisfying, abundant relationship based on simple, everyday acts of generosity.

Ana Gabriel Mann, M.A., holds a Master’s degree in clinical psychology and dance-movement therapy from Antioch New England, where she specialized in working with adults and family therapy. In addition to her work in family therapy and 5 Secrets marriage coaching, she has served as clinical director for a support program for families caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease, co-founded New England’s first college of Chinese medicine, and worked as a corporate consultant, speaker, trainer, and business coach. She is the creator and lead facilitator of the Go-Giver Marriage Coaches training program.

John David Mann is coauthor of more than thirty books, including four New York Times bestsellers and five national bestsellers, including The Go-Giver (coauthored with Bob Burg), which has sold over 1 million copies and won the 2017 Living Now Book Awards Evergreen Medal for its “contributions to positive global change.” He is married to Ana Gabriel Mann and considers himself the luckiest mann in the world.

John and Ana have been dreaming about cowriting "The Go-Giver Marriage" and bringing its message to the world ever since the first draft of John and Bob’s original book came sliding out of his desktop printer in early 2005.
