Among the many great topics covered in this most useful book, I found the chapter on ‘How to Achieve Financial Independence’ to be a wonderful premier on a subject that is often overlooked.  Starting from the most basic, and often least followed, savings concept of “spend less than you make” to the more nuanced use of REIT’s to achieve wealth, the information presented here will certainly help in planning one’s wealth creation.

In the graduate school days, Michael used to give me invaluable advice in interpersonal relationships and insightful perspective to life after MBA. I am excited for those of you who will learn from what he has to say and embark on an enrichment journey throughout your career.
