Prose: non-fiction, Christian life & practice

'I would recommend CEOs give this book to every manager in their company' Jim Smith, Vice-President, HR, SmithKline Beecham

Jack s father was one of the most successful entrepreneurs of his time - the only problem was that the old man had no time, no friends, and died early. The prospect of following in the family tradition seems less than appealing to Jack but on the first day of his MBA he meets a retired professor who offers him a class that wasn t exactly on the curriculum: how to make it in business without losing in life. Over a series of memorable evenings the professor shares with Jack seven laws to turn his life around.

Don't settle for being money rich - time poor

Believe that the job you do makes a difference

Play to your strengths

Believe in the power of dreams

Put your family before your career

Keep the common touch

Don't settle for success; strive for significance
