Editorial Reviews

Review

''Being Dead Is Bad for Business is an engrossing read. It offers a clear-eyed, engaging look at one serial entrepreneur's journey from a driven, starry-eyed youth to an international business executive and philanthropist.''
--Foreword Clarion Reviews 

''Weiss recounts his life with vigor and possesses the easy narrative skills of a seasoned raconteur. The depth and width of his experiences over the course of the last half-century ensures that the book glitters with anecdotal diamonds.''
--Kirkus Reviews

From the Back Cover

''Stanley Weiss's memoir is three books in one: It's a businessman's story of striking it rich (literally, since he was a treasure hunter); a history of the second half of the twentieth century; and an MRI of the author's character development. Well written with great storytelling, the book is funny, poignant, and almost breathlessly candid about Weiss's own shortcomings. A rich, compelling read about a self-made man.''
--Lesley Stahl, correspondent for 60 Minutes and bestselling author of Becoming Grandma 

''A great read about a great life! Stanley Weiss's reflections are wonderfully introspective, refreshingly candid, remarkably self-effacing, and hugely fascinating--as well as repeatedly informed by his ultimate insight, that dying is bad for business.''
--General (Ret) David Petraeus, former director of the CIA and commander of coalition forces in Iraq (2006-7) and Afghanistan (2010-11) 

''Wow. After reading his memoir, I now see that I previously knew less than 5 percent of Stanley Weiss. He is a multi-faceted, peripatetic, well-read, energetic, broadly connected, multi-movied bon vivant and more. Awesome.''
--Josh S. Weston, honorary chairman of ADP 

''Just like the film characters he reveres, Stanley Weiss brings us a story of charm, courage, and adventure--and he tells it all with his trademark wit and insight. It is a masterful book.''
--Lord Carrington, foreign secretary to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and the last living member of Winston Churchill's cabinet 

"Not surprisingly, very touching, quite moving, and true. . . . It's quite good."
--Taki Theodoracopulos, longtime columnist for The Spectator and publisher of Taki's Magazine
