    A practical approach to creating wealth-based on the established principles of ancient Jewish wisdom-made accessible to people of all backgrounds. The ups and downs of the economy prove Rabbi Daniel Lapin's famous principle that the more things change, the more we need to depend upon the things that never change. There's no better source for both practical and spiritual financial wisdom than the time-tested knowledge found in the ancient Jewish faith and its culture.

    If you could sum up Thou Shall Prosper in three words, what would they be?

    Thou Shall Prosper may sound like a religious book, but it's not. It's a book about value - your value in the market place.Once you get past the title and the fact that this book was written by a Rabbi, you'll see how the principles and ideas he talks about can help you do more with money. You'll see money differently.You'll also begin to see wealth and prosperity not as evil but as an ultimate benchmark of the good you are offering to the world. Despite the subtitle, this book is less about how to make money and more about how people - including you - view money. Get your views and beliefs about money right and the how to make it will take care of itself.

  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    Where does The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is a classic. There's a reason it's sold 25 million copies.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    In the introduction Mr. Covey talks about how these habits will become more applicable as the world gets busier and busier. He wrote that 20+ years ago. And indeed since I last read this book more than a decade ago, I 'd have to agree.

    Would you listen to How to Win Friends & Influence People again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to this book again... and again... and again. It contains the fundamental ideas that practically guarantee you many fruitful and profitable relationships for years to come.


    Any additional comments?

    I used the Audible app for my iPhone and listened at 3X speed. It was fast but after about 5 minutes, I found it was quite easy to take in at that speed. I was able to listen to the entire book in just 4 sessions at the gym. Also, I found the book marking feature of the app very useful for capturing ideas and taking notes.

  • Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action

    Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This book is written around a great principle: Start with Why. The problem is after the first chapter or two the whole book tend s to sound the same with the same examples being stated over and over and over and over again.

    No need to waste your time with this book. You can easily just search online for Simon Sinek and watch his TedTalk and get the gist of this book in 18 minutes -and save your self 7 hours.


    What was most disappointing about Simon Sinek’s story?

    Too much of the same stuff repeated over and over.


    What aspect of Simon Sinek’s performance would you have changed?

    Read faster. I had to play it at twice speed to get through it.


    What did you take away from Start with Why that you can apply to your work?

    To build your sales and marketing message around why you do what you do instead of just what you do.
