Every ambitious young person should read this book
Schwarzman is smart, ambitious and very thoughtful. This book is both a gripping & inspiring read and an amazing insight into the mind of a man who has achieved extraordinary things in his lifetime.
He addresses a number of questions as well such as creating firm culture, hiring and promotions, economic cycles and philanthropy with depth and insight.
