The founder of JetBlue, the CEO of Dell Computers, the CEO of Deloitte and Touche, the Dean of Harvard Business School — they all have one thing in common. They are devout Mormons who spend their Sundays exclusively with their families, never work long hours, and always put their spouses and children first.
How do they do it? Now, critically acclaimed author and investigative journalist Jeff Benedict (a Mormon himself) examines these highly successful business execs and discovers how their beliefs have influenced them, and enabled them to achieve incredible success. With original interviews and unparalleled access, Benedict shares what truly drives these individuals and the invaluable life lessons from which anyone can benefit.

An example of gospel in action

I have now bought 6 copies of the book, 1 DVD and 1 CD! It is a classic. As a Bishop, I use it in counseling and have used the video in firesides. It is one example of D&C 121 41-45 in action!

This is by far one of the best business/leadership books I have ever read. I plan on buying many copies for my family as birthdays and Christmas come.

Amazing book. Was given to all business school graduates from BYU in April and I can see why. It is a must read for anyone who works or knows some one who works. The way he tells how the wives dealt with many kids and CEO husbands is inspiring. I couldn't put the book down.
