If I had a successful uncle who offered great career advice, I wouldn t need this book his tips, while geared toward the small business owner, are applicable to any worker wishing to gain control of their career I plan to keep this book refer to it time again Esp during performance review time If I had a successful uncle who offered great career advice, I wouldn t need this book his tips, while geared toward the small business owner, are applicable to any worker wishing to gain control of their career I plan to keep this book refer to it time again Esp during performance review time This books sucks It s nothing like what you d expect or thwat the title claims It s a opportunistic Jewish lawyer trying to make a buck by telling us how to live rich He talks a lot about the importance of the telephone is doing business and about getting a good deal from the phone company Whatever. Different approach to the view of money Loved the first half of the book, not crazy about the second half. Though there were some interesting ideas in the book, it was not particularly fun to read It did not add much to the information given by other personal finance books. I liked this book It is great for the employee and entrepreneur alike.
