Told through a story about a young man who aims to be a silk merchant and who winds up sharing a meal with Christ's family after his crucifixion, The Silk Merchant introduces both the young man in the story and the reader to the 12 "immutable laws" by which to live one's life. I don't want to ruin reading the book, so I won't tell you what they are, but they are powerful in their utter simplicity.
What I loved most about R.L. Adams' The Silk Merchant is that it strips away all the verbiage and mumbo jumbo and leaves behind simple, basic rules that are applicable to everyone.
I make the point above because The Silk Merchant is couched in Biblical terms, which is not something I have any problems with, but other readers who don't subscribe to that particular belief system may be put off by it even though the messages the book shares is most definitely universal. I wholehearted recommend this book, though, for everyone.
This is the second book I've reviewed by this particular author, and I have to admit that I'm impressed with the ability Adams has to take what at first glance appears to be a complicated subject and pare it down to the bare essentials.
Just to summarize, these are the ideas, things if you will, that in business seem just out of reach, the ideals, attitude and manners that we know we need to have but can't put into words, like they just can't all be gathered together at the same time. Pontus gathered them together.
I did wonder about this book - after noticing the authors other books, but I must admit I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I'm glad I took the time to download and read it. The author should be writing more books of this style.
