From the Inside Flap
Bestselling author Jon Gordon returns with his most inspiring book yet, filled with powerful lessons and the greatest success strategies of all.
Michael wakes up in the hospital with a bandage on his head and fear in his heart. The stress of building a growing business with his wife Sarah caused him to collapse while on a morning jog. When Michael finds out the man who saved his life is a carpenter he visits him and quickly learns that he is more than just a carpenter; he is also a builder of lives, careers, people and teams.
As the carpenter shares his wisdom, Michael attempts to save his business in the face of adversity, rejection, fear and failure. Along the way he learns that there's no such thing as an overnight success but there are timeless principles to help you stand out, excel and make an impact on people and the world.
Drawing upon his work with countless leaders, sales people, professional and college sports teams, non-profit organizations and schools, Jon Gordon shares an entertaining and enlightening story that will inspire you to build a better life, career, and team with the greatest success strategies of all.
If you are ready to create your masterpiece, read The Carpenter and begin the building process today.

This is a great book and an easy read in that it is a great narrative that literally begs you to keep turning pages (digital they may be....Kindle Version.) I love it when I feel good after reading a book, and this book made me feel motivated and driven to not only have success, but do it for the right reasons and in the right way. I can truly say you will not be disappointed with this book. I recommend it for both people in business as well as anyone reading it for personal reasons.
Read when you need a lift, and you will become a "builder" or something even better.
