Acclaim for The Richest Man Who Ever Lived

“Truly amazing! Solomon gives us the master keys to success, wealth, and happiness. In this book, Steve Scott puts those keys in our hands, and shows us how to use them. Whether you’re just getting started in business, or the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, I believe these breakthrough strategies could propel you to levels of success and happiness you haven’t yet imagined. No wonder the wisest man who ever lived, also became the richest!”

—David Neelman, Founder and CEO, Jet Blue


“The insights, advice, solutions, and specific steps provided in this book are truly life changing. Whether they are applied to your job, career, marriage, or parenting, it’s quickly obvious that they have the power to change everything!”

—Joan Lunden (former host, Good Morning America)


“This book is the result of an astonishing idea developed by Steven Scott from interpreting the book Book of Proverbs, in which he says (and demonstrates) that there are solutions to every problem in life…. “The Richest Man Who Ever Lived” bears out his contention.”

—Hugh Downs, ABC News

By Tom Carpenter VINE VOICE on June 15, 2006
Format: Hardcover
I love this book. Though I could stop there and say nothing, I really want to try and persuade you of its value as I believe it will have a tremendous impact on your thinking - it sure did have an impact on mine.

I found it interesting, first of all, that Gary Smalley wrote about how he encouraged Steven Scott (the author) to read through Proverbs one chapter per day and doubling up on short months so he would read through it 12 times per year. I've been doing this for about 9-10 months and it has really had an impact on me. There are so many great insights in the Proverbs. However, I discovered many new ways of thinking about the Proverbs as I read through this book (one night - that's all it took; however, I plan to read it again while taking notes now).

The concept that Proverbs itself teaches us (Proverbs 2:4) to contemplate the Proverbs more deeply to find the greater treasure was a complete oversight on my part. After seeing this, from Steven Scott's book, I realized that I had been doing the right thing by reading the Proverbs over-and-over again; however, I also gained the insight that I needed to meditate upon the individual Proverbs more closely as well.

A favorite verse of mine, for years, has been Proverbs 22:29, "Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean (common) men." Diligence, to me, has always meant to work effectively (efficiently doing the right things) and this was confirmed by this book. In addition, new insights were discovered like the four steps taught by Solomon for achieving diligence in your life. They are:

1) Wake Up to Reality
2) Define Your Visions
3) Effectively Partner
4) Pursue Wisdom; Build Your Life upon It

This is just a drop in the bucket of what the book has to offer. I hope this review helps you make your decision.

Blessings,
Tom Carpenter

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.

Steven Scott's book is full of pearls of wisdom from King Solomon, the richest man who ever lived.

The author had lived a life of failure up to the point that he was challenged to read one chapter of Proverbs (one of Solomon's books of wisdom) daily. This plan allowed him to read through the entire book monthly (some months he had to read two chapters a day as Proverbs has 31 chapters). He read through the entire book numerous times and has had great results.

What Scott experienced was life changing. He transformed from a failure to a super successful person financially and otherwise. During his journey in learning from Solomon's wisdom, Scott categorized the Proverbs into 46 categories. He has included 15 of those in this book.

This is a terrific book that certainly has the potential to be life altering for those wise enough to apply its precepts. Highly recommended.

I love this book. Simply absorbing. Very easy to read. In addition, the examples from Steven's personal and business experiences appear to be sound.

What captivates me the most is the practical application of spiritual wisdom to conventional ways of living.

Steven has successfully applied such wisdom into his business endeavors. No wonder. he's reaping the fruits a thousandfold.

I don't normally buy books like this one, but I took a chance because I recieved a gift card for my birthday. Luckily, I wasn't dissapointed. Like most great books, this one offers simple advice dressed up with stories, ancedotes and examples. Although most of the "secrets" are known, Scott digs deeper into what each principle means and how to live it. I particularly enjoyed the chapters on dilegence and partnering, as I think they are the most important in the book. What makes this book unique is that it takes principles from the book of proverbs and pulls all the verses on each subject together to create a full picture of what Solomon meant by each bit of wisdom. Chapters range from communication to dealing with critcism and anger. Each chapter reveals the benifits of living by the wisdom found in proverbs and the consequences of not living by them. It brought to light many ideas in proverbs I had not previesouly considered, and for that reason alone, I think the book is worth checking out. God bless.
