Gift giving/receiving behavior have been defined as the process of gift exchange that takes place between a giver and recipient. The giving and receiving of gift is a ritual that takes place in all society although in different forms to build and strength relationship between the giver and the recipient.

We live in a world where the pace of life is phenomenal. We have to work harder, faster, more efficiently, longer hours and with less job security than ever before. This environment is a very difficult one for the perfectionist, who is driven not so much by the desire for success, but by the fear of failure and need for control. They have unrealistic expectations of themselves (possibly others too) and feel they can never achieve enough and never be good enough. They feel unable to bask in the pleasure of achievement or really enjoy their relationships.

People often turn to egg or sperm donors when they cannot use their own eggs or sperm to
become pregnant, or when they don’t have both sperm and eggs available to them, such as single
women or people in LGBT relationships. They can go through a fertility clinic, an egg brokerage
agency, a sperm bank, or recruit a known donor (friend, family member) or unknown donor
(place Web or newspaper ad). Sperm donation can be used for AI, IVF, GIFT, and ZIFT; egg
donation for all but AI. The term “donor” can be misleading as “donors” are often paid...

Before these results to the two questions are presented a comment on this e-book’s title is warranted. Bottom line is that there is nothing wrong with outsourcing as a business paradigm. Indeed, outsourcing is here to stay and the successful modern firm is that firm which best manages its portfolio of external service providers.
