"In his creative gifts, in his business success, in his great philanthropy, in his human qualities, Jon Huntsman stands in a class all of his own." (Vice President Dick Cheney)
"How timely! How needed it is for one of the finest human beings, industrial leaders, and philanthropists on the planet to compellingly drill down 10 timeless, universal values for business and life." (Dr. Stephen R. Covey, author of
Jon Huntsman should run for President of this Country. I am 58 years old and have always been told nice guys finish last. Jon puts that thought to shame. I have a new American Idol.
This is an excellent book on honesty and ethical behavior. The message is simple and clear - do what is right. If you start to rationalize your decision (e.g., it was a verbal agreement; they know it's not an obligation until a contract is signed), you know you're going against your values but trying to justify it. The author follows this simple ideology and demonstrates that you can be both honest and successful. You don't have to pay bribes to create a billion dollar company. You don't have to have lots lawyers to draw up complicated contracts so each company can protect itself from other's unscrupulous behavior. The author Jon Huntsman Sr. gives many stories about winning without cheating.
Family, charity and business all require high level of ethics in order to truly be successful and Jon reminds us of this as he walks us through the ups and downs of his life.
I had heard about Jon Huntsman, but never knew much about him. This was a great story about his life and the work he has done in his life.
I would compare this to "How to win friends and Influence People." This book relates the way to carry yourself in business and life. Talks about how to stay true to yourself and your knowledge of right and wrong and how this will influence your life for the better.

Mr. Huntsman clearly is a good man. Our country needs more like him.
refreshing view on business.
Faith in Humanity
Clear voice and intonation.
Business isn't all bad (I knew that but couldn't point to a role model).
This book is written like a list of all the good choices Jon Huntsman has ever made. Although full of many truisms, the book was very boring and hard to get through. I could not tell who his intended audience was. If he is writing to people who already live these standards the book is just a nice review...yep it pays to live an honest life. If he is writing to his peers-modern day business men, his tone is often condescending. If he is writing to young people it is very dry, boring, and reads like a lecture.
