Great book if you are at least inclined to think that money and profits are not evil. If you think that trying to earn more and accumulate wealth is exploitation you'll hate how this book challenges your erroneous mindset.
Author does a great job of discussing the purpose of business and money as helping others via volumtary exchange. His insight and interpretation of ancient biblical stories was fascinating to someone who was raised Christian and had heard many of them before but never with this level of historical analysis and
The reader was good but SLOW! I ended up listening to half the book at 1.5 or even 2x speed. He does "gulp" air in the beginning as one reviewer said but either he stopped or I stopped hearing it.
The negatives are the minor issues with narration and the author would go on fairly long tangents but he would ultimately tie it back into the story.
The Rabi is very detailed in covering what seems like every aspect of life and buisness. What a unique perspective on life. I find that the Jewish community has discovered something in life that others have missed, or at least were not taugt to me. It was a great read, only a dusting of religion, (so don't be scared off by the "Rabi" part, very good info that applies to the religious and unreligious alike) and allot of really good information about most aspects of life.
If you want a unique look at life, money, buisness, selling, buying.....LIFE!?
This is the book for you. I mean anyone. Everyone.
Immensely powerful information! Who would have that that religious teaching could offer so much to the business professional? I highly recommend this book to everyone. This is basic information that everyone should know but few do. If I could only read one book on business this would probably be the one.
Interested in keeping it interesting, leadership, theology and business.
It's a lot of content, but I would say it is in my top 5 for sure
I have never heard the Jewish/Judeo-Christian take on $ before. The section where the Rabbi contrasts the view the U.S. has on making money and what his God says using biblical and cultural expamples, present and historic is fascinating. I don't know of a book that clarifies a theological perspective of making, having, giving, and spending money so well. This studied explanation of what a healthy view of money from the Judeo-Christian/Biblical perspective, I think would be hard to compare.
Promoted thought towards and changed my perspective of my role in the workplace and the fruit of my labor.
The author is a master on this subject. This is a life work not a book put together to make money. I am glad it is in my library, I will be coming back to it often.
I talked about this book so much that my family know who he
It is by-far my favorite. The information is golden and practical.
It would need to be heavily reccomended
Prosper you must serve others
The information in this book is priceless. I enjoy the information and new view at the business world.
What a find. I throughly enjoyed this book. Rabbi Lapin brings clarity and invites you to think differently about things you though you knew. It should be a read for anyone looking to make a better living for themselves and others.
Award-winning direct response copywriter and lover of all things non-fiction.
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.
I'm sure this book is for someone, just not me. I found it an odd mix of religion and history that flip-flopped back and forth. Didn't see the relevance of much of it.
Didn't really care for the narrator either.
If you think you'd be interested in this I recommend getting it and if it's not for you use Audible's Great Read program to exchange it.
