Scan the list of Forbes billionaires, and you'll see dozens of people whose fortunes were created not by what they bought but what they built-Bill Gates, Michael Dell, the Walton family Wal-Mart , the Johnson family Fidelity mutual funds -and those are just some of the famous ones.

He wr "You will usually create much more wealth by starting a new business than buying an existing one He writes his insights about business, a fulfilling life and philanthropy. His target market is mainly young adults between the ages of I don't think you can ask for more from the author. I think he gives an honest account of what he thinks a person of this age should know or work toward. He also indicated in this book that he has read over 2, books, so he is writing out of experience and knowledge.

There are appendixes attached to this book that share his top picks for books and movies, an account of starting one of his businesses and an account of his trip to the Arab world in If you are between the ages of years old, this book can mentor you in some things that can help you in your life and business endeavours.
