Distilled Wisdom of Solomon,
This review is from: The Richest Man Who Ever Lived: King Solomon's Secrets to Success, Wealth, and Happiness (Hardcover)
This is one of the best books ever. What better person to take life lessons from than the wisest man who ever lived. Scott boils down the teachings of Solomon into everyday language and gives examples of how they apply to daily life.
Although, drawn from the Biblical book of Proverbs it is not a preachy book. Truth is truth, no matter what the source, and you can benefit from this book wheather you are "religious" or not.
Much of it may seem like common sense as you read, but how common is "common sense" and how diligently do we use it even when we know it? Like an athlete in the middle of some strenuous exercise who may need to be reminded to "Breathe!" by a coach, sometimes we in the midst of our busy lives need to be coached to do things that should be self evident, but often are not.
The Richest Man Who Ever Lived is a book about discipline and relationships and how to make improvements in both. A perfect gift for the young or not so young graduate. A great bedside book and a book that would also be be a wonderful "pass-it-on book" to share with friends.
