"This substantial addition to financial literature...stands apart in a crowded genre. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)
The author is a high-yield analyst at Merrill-Lynch. He's take some time to research common themes that make a business succeed (or fail). You can, I suppose, use this to try to be a billionaire. You can also use it to simply make your business more profitable (whether you own it or work for it as an employee). You can use these threads to distinguish between attractive investments and unattractive ones, or sort new clients into high-growth and limited-growth prospects. I'm a dissatisfied bookworm, and in my entire life I likely won't give a total of ten 5-star ratings; congratulations, Mr. Fridson, you earned one!
I found it interesting for the most part. The narrator's over pronunciation, especially of Wayne "HUI ZEN GA" was annoying. I'd probably think twice about getting another book that she narrates.
Good book that anylizes different stories of different American billionaires. Becoming a billionaire is a difficult subject to cover because so few have reached this status, but it does give you a decent idea of how others have reached their wealth. You won't be rich just by reading this book.
