During his lifetime, legendary martial artist Bruce Lee formulated a complex personal philosophy - a synthesis of Eastern and Western ideals - that extolled the virtues of knowledge and total mastery of one's self. Most of his philosophical writings could be found only within the personal library of the Bruce Lee estate - until John Little was given permission to publish them for the wider world.

In 1997, Robert’s book Rich Dad, Poor Dad stunned listeners, stating, "Your house is not an asset." As howls of protest went up around the world, the book went on to become an international best seller. Today, we are all aware that a home can be a liability. Today, we all know a home can go up or down in value. Today, we all know a person can lose money investing in the stock market. Today, we all know our money can go down in value and even savers can be losers. This is why your financial intelligence is more important today than ever before. In a world of financial turbulence, your best asset is your financial IQ.

Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new foreword and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant and answer some of the most common questions he has received over the past 15 years.

This is an excellent audio book. It explains many of the core business principles at a very high level. I would highly recommend reading this book. You will definitely learn something new no matter what level you are at (beginner up to CEO). It's always important to go over the basics. Obviously, this book does not provide the same deep level of learning that can be achieved over the course of a real MBA year. However, in terms of value for money, and time spent, this book certainly delivers some great results.

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. Their natural ability to start with why enabled them to inspire those around them and to achieve remarkable things.
