This is an incredible story. The author, a failed, alcoholic Wall Street trader, had retreated to a monastery. It, too, was failing. The walls were crumbling. The roof was leaking. The monks were on food stamps. An ancient order was about to go belly-up. Then, one fateful day, Brother Ty decided to let God be his broker - and not only saved the monastery, but discovered the Seven and a Half Laws of spiritual and financial growth. Brother Ty's remarkable success has been studied at the nation's leading business schools and scrutinized by Wall Street's greatest minds, but the secret to the miracle is not to be found in any management analysis. The answer lies in the ancient texts used by the monks. Now, for the first time, Brother Ty reveals the secrets he found in those texts - complete with chapter and verse citations - and tells you how you can get God to be your broker. But even more important than the money you'll make is the inner peace that you will achieve.
