A good compendium of wisdom earned by many successful business men over the course of their careers. There are many, but here I just picked my favorite one: What a man knows at fifty that he did not at twenty is, for the most part, incommunicable.A man at twenty has been told them all, has read them all, but he has not live them all.- Adalai E. Stevenson -
Take initiative with your career and make things happen rather than waiting around for something to happen.
I was a little disappointed with this book after the glowing review that a close friend of mine gave it. Frankly, I found the advice from these business leaders to be (1) contradictory at times and (2) very "Los-Angeles" focused as the leaders quoted came predominately from the entertainment, advertising and public relations industry in and around southern California. So all in all, I can not say that I would recommend this book of quotes to others looking to be inspired by it.
Excellent collection of quotes and thoughts that you can pick up anytime for a quick read.
