Publisher's Summary

The founder of JetBlue. The CEO of Dell Computers. The CEO of Deloitte & Touche. The dean of the Harvard Business School. They all have one thing in common: they are devout Mormons who spend their Sundays exclusively with their families, never work long hours, and always put their spouses and children first. How do they do it?

Critically acclaimed author and investigative journalist Jeff Benedict (a Mormon himself) examines these highly successful business execs and discovers how their beliefs have influenced them and enabled them to achieve incredible success. With original interviews and unparalleled access, Benedict shares what truly drives these individuals and their invaluable life lessons - from which anyone can benefit.

Critic Reviews

"Religious beliefs notwithstanding, the examples here prove that leadership that values the human element and does not compromise integrity and the environment does not equate to a competitive disadvantage but rather the opposite." ( Booklist)

Great Book

For me it was worth a second listen! You will enjoy learning from these wise decision makers. These men credit parts of their sucess in part by living within the guidelines, and drawing strength from the LDS faith. A good read for anyone since the studied men were fairly open about their challenges and the process they went through when making difficult decisions.

Living their religion

I enjoyed this book. I like learning of people who live their standards in all aspects of their life. No one is perfect, but their example helps me.

The only reason I have this review less than 5 stars was that it sounded like many of the sentences were cut at the very end. it was distracting. Otherwise ,5 stars.

Little book goes a long way

Amazing how the author provides a wealth of information and doesn’t take 10 hours to do it. As a Christian but not LDS I was drawn to this book thru long term friendships and business dealing with LDS members. It will now be required reading for my up and coming company leaders.

Great Understanding

Very interesting listen and understanding of these men’s lives. Interesting how men at such lofty corporate positions can still be grounded by their faith.

An excellent bit of insight into the lives of some very extraordinary men.

Though about a decade old, this book still provided some great insight into some interesting and successful Mormons. The book doesn't shy away from there and perfection but also highlights the ways that they are able to utilize the teachings of their church to excel both as a family man and as high-level executives. It is a quick read/listen and it was definitely motivating for me.

The Newbie

I thoroughly enjoyed the insight of these individuals. I am young and starting to get traction in my firm to someday be an executive. In this role I am finding some challenges in balancing family, work, and church. I took away a few good concepts and set goals to help me develop not just within business but within my personal and spiritual life.

Gripping

A must read for those who seek "success" outside the home while trying to balance life. I couldn't put it down. I will definitely seek out other titles written by this author.
