I am a big fan of the might set that Robert helps you develop. I dont think this is the end all be all for fincial freedom but it gets your mind working in that way so you start making better decisions with your money, so you can put yourself in a good spot later in life. beyond that he touches on the subject my parents struggled with witch was educating me about how money works and not making it such a taboo topic. so all good things.

It is popularly supposed that a greater prosperity for individuals or nations can only come through a political and social reconstruction. This cannot be true apart from the practice of the moral virtues in the individuals that comprise a nation. Better laws and social conditions will always follow a higher realization of morality among the individuals of a community, but no legal enactment can give prosperity to, nay it cannot prevent the ruin of, a man or a nation that has become lax and decadent in the pursuit and practice of virtue.

The new question: Ten years after the worldwide bestseller Good to Great, Jim Collins returns to ask: Why do some companies thrive in uncertainty, even chaos, and others do not? In Great by Choice, Collins and his colleague, Morten T. Hansen, enumerate the principles for building a truly great enterprise in unpredictable, tumultuous, and fast-moving times. The new study: Great by Choice distinguishes itself from Collins’s prior work by its focus on the type of unstable environments faced by leaders today.

incredibly insightful book about what it takes to thrive in any business circumstance. by the title it appears the book is about doing well in uncertainty, but it is actually a blueprint of how to operate a business so that you are prepared for uncertainty. It's not about what you do when uncertainty or world events happen, its what you did before all of that, that will insure your long term success.

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.

if you hate your job read this book and take action. it gives you a step by step guide to how to start your own business and reclaim your freedom from the 9 to 5 rat race. The book manages to do this in a funny and clever sort of way.

as a person who was sceptical of this book sense the day I heard about it and it was recommended to me. I waited until I was an extreme amount of professional pain to buy this "stupid" book. Man do I wish my ego would have allowed me to believe sooner. I could have been helping thousands of people sooner and experienced so much more out of life. Just glad I found it now. and as they say Amor Fati
