From Publishers Weekly
Rich DeVos, cofounder of Amway and owner of the Orlando Magic, has battled illness, received a heart transplant and long advocated compassion in business. This book analyzes DeVos's life philosophy, serving up aphorisms, commentary and anecdotes about him. Williams, senior v-p of the Orlando Magic who has worked closely with DeVos for 14 years, and Denney, a business writer, clearly adore DeVos and are enthusiastic converts to his ways. "Many people have mental objections that keep them from becoming life-enhancers and cheerleaders. If you want to be successful, effective and influential like Rich DeVos, then you need to overcome these obstacles and objections," advise the authors. The secret to DeVos's success? He is a man of the people who treats everyone equally well ("the most important friends Rich DeVos has made were not the entertainers and presidents he knew, but the thousands of ordinary people who have known and loved him"). This tribute to a living legend is likely to resonate among readers looking for a positive leader who hasn't been tarnished by the Enron, Worldcom or other business scandals. But the book's overwrought enthusiasm may be unappealing for anyone looking for solid insights into DeVos's business strategies.

"Rich DeVos has a simple business philosophy: If you are successful, then you give something back to your community. He is a classic example of what it means to be a good citizen. He is a man of tremendous integrity, unbelievable energy, and great speaking and leadership skills."(Gerald Ford, Former President of the United States)|
"Rich DeVos is an example to us all—an example of generosity, caring and compassion. He typifies all that is good about America, both in his success and in the way he uses his success to improve the lives of people everywhere. He has made an enormous amount of money through good judgment, hard work and inspiring others to achieve their dreams, and he uses his money to help others (Edwin Meese, Former U.S. Attorney General)|
"Rich DeVos is a marvelous speaker who inspires people with his words. He's a remarkable salesman who knows how to move an idea in the marketplace. He's as patriotic a citizen as I have ever known. He has always believed in doing the right thing for the American people and the nation at large Every aspect of Rich DeVos's life emanates from an adherence to his Christian faith and principles."(Gen. Alexander Haig, Former Secretary of State)
