Known for his compelling logic and easy-to-understand style, Friedman shares the most important insights he learned during a 27-year business career in which he led one of the most unique and successful companies in his industry.

And how many times, as students and seekers of health and happiness, have we found ourselves unable to stay with that "think positive" philosophy and ended up thinking, There's something wrong with me, I'm just not doing it right?
