a truly modern motivational book

by Panoptikon (WorldCat user published 2009-06-02) Excellent Permalink

Unlike the standard motivational book (which I dislike intensely), this one addresses an intelligent reader. It does not talk down to someone who is already successful or widely experienced in business.
