Overview

The Go-Getter is Kyne's most famous work, first published by William Randolph Hearst in 1921. The story centers around disabled World War I veteran Bill Peck, a worker who must overcome many obstacles in order to build a successful life for himself. At every turn he is thwarted by life's circumstances and must rely on his own tenacity and wits to see him through.


American novelist PETER B. KYNE (1880-1957) was born in San Francisco, California. From early on it was clear that he had a gift for writing, and his time in the army during the Spanish-American War and World War I gave him plenty to write about. Kyne's novels include The Three Godfathers (1913) and Cappy Ricks (1916).

Now here is a story about a man that refused to quit; refused to give up on his dream/goals; and did it with integrity. Granted, he was up against some people that lacked some of the same integrity and yet he still manages to win the day. Highly recommended and a short read!

One of the best books I have ever read. A book that everyone should read. The style of writting was a bit hard at times but it made the book unique. Crabbys' one sentence phrases were a delight.

If someone is looking for the inspriation to get going, or keep going, this is a must read. Once I started reading I could not stop and in a little over an hour had completed the book. The greatest message I got was, no matter what the hurdle is, you will win if you keep going, and never quit.
