5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste This Crisis By Sitting Still, April 16, 2010
This review is from: The 10 Laws of Enduring Success (Hardcover)
As an instructor, I am always asked by students and peers "what are you reading?" and "Why do you like it?" Most of the books I read for professional purposes are around decision making, emotional intelligence, and on commodities, such a crude oil or cocoa. It's great to read a book that can benefit a wide array of people from diverse backgrounds - white or blue collar. This is such a book and I heartily recommend it.

Despite what you may think, Bartiromo is from a very humble, working-class background, having been raised in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. She had a vision for what she wanted, followed her heart, and made it happen with a lot of love and support from her parents Josephine and Vincent, and from her sister who she is very close with.

With Catherine Whitney, Bartiromo has written a compelling case for not feeling sorry for yourself and taking control of where you want to be in your life. The book is full of candor not normally associated with someone who you'd consider "image-conscious."

I wrote an article about Bartiromo and 10 Laws at the Huffington Post. Below are the first three paragraphs:

A good teacher will help aggregate information and condense it for you in an organized manner. A great teacher will passionately help you discover the ability you have inside yourself and help you culture that pearl, so that your feelings and intellect become your allies.

Such is the approach Maria Bartiromo has taken in her new book, 10 Laws of Enduring Success, written with Catherine Whitney. The book details the events that Bartiromo had to overcome and the manner in which she had to persist from her days as a young girl in Brooklyn, to becoming the woman the world knows her as today.

The result is an inspiring and highly motivational book that is perfectly timed for today's business environment. It doesn't pander to her constituents on Wall St. either: it's equally motivating to white and blue collars - and especially to women. While reading it, I kept thinking how this book reminded me of 2 other inspiring reads I recommend to my students: Napolean Hill's "Think and Grow Rich" and Stephen Covey's "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People."

You can read the rest of my article <a href="[...]">How Maria Bartiromo May Become The Best Teacher You've Ever Had</a> at the Huffington Post.

Maria is very fast on her feet mentally and I enjoy listening to her interviews. Today she interviewed Robert Prechtor one of my favorites for 30 years. It was a good and fast interview/duel and Maria demonstrated what I think of as her most comical quality: She thinks in "bullish spin". If the Dow was down 1000 points for the day and the guy she was interviewing said he was selling everything and then going to jump out the window Maria would ask him: "If you survive the fall
what will you be buying tomorrow?" .. (and with a great smile) I like Maria a lot but I pay no attention to her sentiments. Dan
