Like all of Alan Weiss’s books, this one makes you
think about why people do the things they do. Many
of his insights are counterintuitive, such as how it is
powerlessness rather than power that corrupts, or the
critical nature of self-esteem in business survival.
Like Richard Fineman’s What Do You Care What
Other People Think, this book rigorously challenges
“politically correct” thinking and points out its
unintended consequences. -- Dr. Larry Kutner
Coming from McGraw-Hill in 2010:
Million Dollar Speaking (the successor to
the wildly successful Money Talks) and
Alan Weiss’s writing style has always been clear but I
find the style of Thrive! to be incredibly engaging – it’s a
real page turner. I love the titles and subtitles – I’ve never
laughed while reading a table of contents before!
The book summarizes the wisdom and life’s lessons of a
reflective and successful man. The thing that separates
this from other inspirational books is the wealth of practical advice. -- James Bradford
